Unfortunately, a couple of aspects hold it back for me. The kindle version I have is not very well adapted for my iPad mini and as such it is not very easy to pinch and stretch the pages to enjoy the finer details, or in some cases read the text. The second factor was the blatant eroticisation of Alice and co. Now don't get me wrong I'm happy snog hey to enjoy a scantily clad comic book character, but in this case it gets progressively more obvious and out of place as the book goes on. Indeed the alternative covers at the end of the book are close to comic book porn. As I say, fine in its place but not quite what I expected in this, and it really only serves to overshadow what is an outstanding story.
Worth a read for sure, but perhaps not to everyone's taste.
Well, this certainly scores on that front. The drawing is compelling and sophisticated. The reimagining of the characters as evil and inhuman is very effective. The hot babe angle certainly adds interest. The kick-butt transformation of little Alice is satisfying. And the way some of the characters are recreated - the Cheshire cat, the Walrus, the Mad Hatter to name a few, really is remarkably inventive. Some of it is over the top, but to some extent that is the point of the whole exercise. And while it is violent, it is comic book violence of a disposable sort.
Zenescope has done a lot with the Grimm Fairy Tales concept, but I sometimes think they hit the top with the Wonderland books.
If there is a weakness it is that this volume makes a lot of references to other Wonderland volumes, and the story can be a bit hard to follow if you aren't familiar with the previous volumes, ( and, actually, even if you are familiar with them). I don't mind that because a lot of the graphic novels I either like or admire go in for either incoherent dialogue, abstruse plotting, or self-indulgent navel gazing, and it seems that a certain amount of that just goes with the territory.
So, if you really need a completely clear linear plot, this will probably be frustrating. If you are willing to let the story unravel a little around the edges the other virtues of this project will probably be reward enough.
Please note that I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for a vague promise to provide a candid review.
The story is similarly paced as other graphics I've read. Fast enough to keep you interested and, since this is technically a collection of several shorter stories, there's enough hooks to keep you in.
I think with this, and many other graphics, it's the artwork and perhaps love of a classic tale told in a different, and much darker, way.
Not a patch on alternative Wonderlands such as Alice - madness returns. Different medium I know but there it is.
