The Art of Alice: Madness Returns

The Art of Alice: Madness Returns: edited by Dave Marshall.

Introduction by American McGee.

Published by Dark Horse Books, 2011. Hardback.

ISBN-13: 978-1595826978

From the publisher:

Legendary game designer American McGee created one of the most visually arresting games of all time in Alice. Eleven years later, McGee returns with a sequel just as groundbreaking as his critically acclaimed classic – Alice: Madness Returns! Just in time for Madness Returns, Dark Horse and Spicy Horse Games invite Alice fans to take a journey through the wonderland of American McGee’s imagination for a look at this magnificent and disturbing world. With text by Madness Returns lead writer and executive producer R. J. Berg, and featuring an introduction by McGee, The Art of Alice offers an intimate look into the artwork behind this blockbuster interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s enduring masterpiece.

There’s some beautiful artwork in here, and it makes me want to go and play the game, but it’s PC. Bother.

Artists involved include Ken Wong, Sun Guoliang, Luis Melo, Hong Lei, Wu Yuehan, Ben Kerslake, Nako, Tyler Lockett, Fellipe Martins, Pu Jinsong, Wang Shenghua, Yuan Shaofeng and Jin Lei. I like the text explaining how the Chinese artists unfamiliar with Alice dealt with the project.

There’s a video review on Amazon if you want a look inside, and it’s buy-able on there of course: The Art of Alice: Madness Returns

POP Wonderland Alice

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: Lewis Carroll, adapted by Michiyo Hayano.

Illustrated by POP.

Published by Dark Horse Books, 2010.

ISBN: 978-1595822666

A very manga-esque Alice, all big eyes and clumpy feet. Everything’s very pastel and cute: not really my cup of tea, but I can see the appeal. There are several others in the series: Red-Riding Hood, Thumbelina and The Little Mermaid.

From the publishers:

* A new line of children’s story books, the POP Wonderland series is rendered in a friendly, pastel palette, with engaging art that brings familiar fairy tales to life in a brand- new way.

* A well-known manga artist and anime designer in Japan, the illustrator known as POP is the creator behind the 2007 educational TV series Moetan. A hit in Japan, Moetan has spawned a line of educational books, CDs, DVDs, and more, all designed to help Japanese children learn English.
