This review first appeared on my blog and reviews both books in the series.

The Mad Hatter Does Not Want to Be Late to the Unbirthday Party

Last weekend Danielle and I went to Borders so Danielle could check out the Buffy graphic novels and I could pick up Watchmen. While in the graphic novel section I started looking around to see what new books were out in this space and I came across Beyond Wonderland and Return to Wonderland, two comics in Zenoscope‘s Grimm Fairy Tales line. From the busty cover on Beyond Wonderland, I thought it might be like Clamp’s Mi

This is the second book in the trilogy and the one that I like the best. It made me care about Cailie a lot more. Watching her struggle to lead a normal life while always worrying about Wonderland coming for her sets the tone for this book. Seeing her struggle with the paranoia and the guilt of lying to everyone rounds out her character well. I think it makes Cailie more likable and you find yourself being able to relate to her.

I like that we also get to see more about the twists and turns that...more
If you read the first book you know how maddening the books might become. This one in particular was not a hard read to follow. It's all about the motivation for Alice's daughter's return to wonderland. We also get to learn some of the reasons for Wonderland's existence. It a bit of a gruesome tale, but if you enjoyed the first book you'll enjoy this next one.
The second in the Wonderland Trilogy is a bit better than the first. There's more of a story, some questions from "Return to Wonderland" are answered, and it's a bit less gratuitous (but not much). Overall, if you made the mistake of buying the entire series while it was on sale (like I did) it might be worth reading if you've already made the mistake of reading "Return to Wonderland" since it answers a few questions and has a slightly better story, but it's not good enough to justify picking th...more

I recently picked up Return to Wonderland and found it pleasantly disturbing. These books feature top notch horror and not for the faint of heart. But, if you love your stories dark and disturbing. This is the book for you. I would start with the Return to Wonderland Trade. Then move onto the Tales of Wonderland trades (volume 1 and volume 2)and then the Beyond Wonderland trade before tackling escape from wonderland. (Or you can just Wikipedia the story to catch up).

A dark and twisted sequel to "Return to Wonderland." This one is a little heavy on exposition and explanation but still delightfully twisted. I would have liked to see more of Wonderland and (spoiler) Johnny, but it's a nice continuation of the story, at the very least..
Quite a dark continuation to Grimm Fairy Tales: Return to Wonderland, just as violent, just as scantily clad, and just as well drawn.
I'm not really read graphic novels before, they never really interested me, but this one I enjoy. The drawings and colours were fantastic.
Will think about read more,maybe from this series
Not as good as The Return...
But I'm willing to put that down to her hormones...
Hope the next one is as good as the first...
I read the individual issues as they came out -- devoured them.

then I read the whole mini-series on June 11, 2010

Story is good, however it's not really my cup of tea. And the orientation of the speech bubbles annoys me!

This is the book that got me back into comics after a 12 year break :-)
