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 edition.

Only thing that keeps me from giving it a full 5 stars is that I felt the ending was a bit anticlimactic. Warning: I would recommend getting familiar w/ most of the characters & settings from the original _Alice in Wonderland_ & _Though the Looking Glass_ first. Otherwise, the plot jumps might lose you. I instantly fell in love w/ Sonny Liew's mixed media, whimsical style. His use of color to portray dark themes within a zany environment is pure artistic genius. That said, the plot is also imaginative, and includes themes of personal growth & absurdity. (Just like the original Lewis Carroll.)

What happens in Wonderland after Alice has visited?

Loved the illustrations...they have a vintage feel about them. Unfortunately, the story was too chaotic and disjointed for me. There wasn't a whole lot going on with the plot and it all felt a little forced.
