Wonderland #1 Review
“The following story takes place after the events of The Dream Easter Saga #4 and Wonderland 2012 Annual”
Take note of that first quote. I personally have never read any of the Wonderland works from Zenescope, of course the perky, scantly clad women on every cover always catch my eye and are quickly followed by a shameless perusing of the issues, diving straight into Wonderland #1 proved difficult. For those familiar with the lore and curious about the plot though, should perk up their ears and focus their eyeballs because I’m going to give you your much deserved skinny.
Calie has escaped from Wonderland and is now attempting to live a normal life with her daughter Violet. Things seem normal, but Calie is emotionally damaged from the events and seems to be drifting into bouts of paranoia. While Calie and Violet attempt to live their lives as normal human beings, a familiar villain has spread his seed of madness to a damaged young child, and the mad queen may have found a way to rule Wonderland forever.
I literally had to try and understand all of that without any prior knowledge of any of the characters. It’s definitely an easy read, easy on the eyes too of course, and there are plenty of “Cliff’s Notes” to help guide you in your travels. Let me help you out first, here’s every Wonderland book you should read before picking up Wonderland #1:
- Escape from Wonderland #6
- Wonderland Annual 2012
- Escape from Wonderland TPB
The Wonderland books are a teenage boys living wet dream. Besides the sexed up ladies, there’s plenty of sci-fi fantasy action abound that could keep even my mom’s attention for a good amount of time. Wonderland #1 is no exception, besides hopping around three different stories, you can find hot ladies, mad queens with knights, and an insane kid enacting his most inner demons under the control of a certified madman. I must insist though, that you head my warnings and read the issues I’ve bulleted for you, it’ll make the read so much easier and enjoyable.
