In the tradition of Alice in Wonderland, we get Mirrormask, by Neil Gaiman. Many Gaiman and Dave McKean, which ventures beyond amazing. Punch and Judy is one of the most haunting stories in comic form, with stunning art work. Mirrormask, however, is a bit less original. Gaiman begins with one of his classic themes: thing are not always as they seem. So we soon learn when Helena finds herself in an alternate world, with her mother dying in her old world.
She must complete a quest in order to rescue her mother. Classic fairytale, really, with little innovation. Fun to read with interesting illustrations, but not the groundbreaking work we’ve come to expect from Gaiman and McKean.
