Illustrated by Jill Thompson and Jenny Frison

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Illustrated by Jill Thompson and Jenny Frison.

Published by IDW Publishing, 2010. Hardback, ?1st edition?

Both Alice books in a single volume, with internal illustrations by Jenny Frison, and front cover art by Jill Thompson.

ISBN-13: 978-1600105968

From her bio:

Jill Thompson is the most well-known, female comicbook artist working in the comics industry today. She graduated in 1987 from the American Academy of Art in Chicago and has been working non-stop as a cartoonist and illustrator ever since. She has risen to the top of the male-dominated field and has garnered acclaim for her work on WONDER WOMAN, SWAMP THING, BLACK ORCHID and the award winning title SANDMAN with Neil Gaiman.

Jenny Frison is best known as a cover artist- they seem to have switched roles for this one. She has done covers for Angel and Spike comics. You can buy the artwork from this Alice (or just have a look) here.

I do prefer the internal illustrations to the cover art- they’re softer and less sharply cartoony. I didn’t buy this when I first saw it on Amazon, as I wasn’t attracted by the cover. It wasn’t until I found it in Dave’s Comics in Brighton that I got a look inside and bought it.

Still available on Amazon: Alices Adventures in Wonderland
