Wonderland

51nGTbqGbiL._SX319_BO1,204,203,200_Wonderland by Tommy Kovac, illustrated by Sonny Liew.

Hardcover first edition.

Publisher: Disney Press (17 Mar. 2009)
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1423104513

A new angle on Alice in Wonderland told from the point of view of Mary Ann, the White Rabbit’s housemaid.  Collected edition of separately released comic books.

I really like this. One of the few of my ever growing collection that I’ve actually read. It’s fun, and funny and Liew’s illustrations are really distinctive: echoing the Disney designs but playing with them- sketchy and stretchy and, well, animated.

Tommy Kovac has a cool library type blog thing.

From the publisher’s blurb:

Among the numerous curiosities that have gone unexplained in the classic tale Alice in Wonderland, perhaps the most perplexing might be who, exactly, is the “Maryann” that the White Rabbit mistakes Alice for at the beginning of the story? Lewis Carroll first made us ponder this and, years later, Walt Disney again made viewers wonder who Maryann might be in his classic feature length film based on Carroll’s book.

Now, the amazingly talented folks at SLG Publishing, through a licensing deal with Disney, have finally answered this age-old question. In their beautifully executed comic book series, WONDERLAND, readers experience Alice’s fantastic world as they’ve never seen it before. Writer Tommy Kovac’s Wonderland is missing Alice herself, but it’s still populated by the other characters that make the world such a curiously exciting place. The Queen of Hearts is present, barking orders to lop off people’s heads, as is the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and the rest of Wonderland’s beloved cast. And there are some new faces, too, including the book’s main protagonist, the mysterious Maryann herself. All are beautifully illustrated by Wonderland’s artist, Sonny Liew.

The graphic novel will collect the six issues that comprised the Wonderland comic series in a beautiful, collectible, jacketed hardcover.

Available on Amazon.
