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

"The Charles Mansion Version of Disneyland" - so Calies treffende Beschreibung von Raven Gregorys umgewandelten Mythos des Wunderlands, einem psychotischen Märchen nicht für kleine Mädchen, sondern für Liebhaber von Horrorstories, in dem die Frauen sexy sind, die Monster riesig und das Blut reichlich fließt.
BEYOND WONDERLAND ist der zweite Teil einer Trilogie. Im ersten Teil ist Calie zum Schluß dem Wonderland entkommen, dem aus jeder Generation ein Kind geopfert werden muss, damit es sich nich

I had never heard of this series, but just happened to stumble upon it while looking for something to read on Comixplogy.com. I had no idea this was part of a larger series until I started reading and there were footnotes explaining what had happened previously and where to find it. I'll have to track down the rest of the series later so I can have the whole story.

Raven Gregory is the writer for the series. I have no idea whether this person is male or a female so I don't know what pronoun to us

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

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 fun, but slightly weak follow up to the 'Return to Wonderland' series. This one is set in modern day America and Calie is on the run from her past, whilst dealing with a new name, pregnancy and a deteriorating relationship with her boyfriend - Brandon.

Featuring the same style as the rest of the Wonderland series this is let down by it's location... being based in New York allows for some use of famous buildings and monuments but none of the Wonderland backdrop.

Callie has terrible dreams about Wonderland. Further, she finds out she's pregnant by her boyfriend who has left her. The whole book is about Wonderland's efforts to get Callie to return. There's lots of blood and gore on Earth due to what they are doing.

Callie has her baby, and it's taken by someone back to Wonderland.

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.

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 read the individual issues as they came out -- devoured them.

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

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

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...
