Editor reviews

Hatter Madigan has just escaped a mad house to travel to Washington D.C. in 1865. He's still looking for the lost princess Alyss. During this time the Black Imagination gather and descend on America. Joined in his quest by two 19th century paranormal investigators, Hatter goes in search of the White Flower shamans and an antidote to the evil of the Black Imagination. More secrets and revelations are revealed in this third book, including the mystery of the brother who taught Hatter everything...including how to leave Wonderland.

I'm a huge fan of this graphic adaption of The Looking Glass World books. The stories are a twist on the familar Alice in Wonderland tales. Darker than the original stories but also more intriguing on the whole mystery of what happened to Alyss.

I love the look of these graphic novels--the sepia tint gives the books a Victorian feel. I especially loved the part that President Abraham Lincoln plays in this story. Let's just say I'm curious what he really had under that stovetop hat! Hatter's character is gritty and non repentant as he goes from place to place searching for the lost princess. Some of the illustrations reflect the mood of the time period--1865--and the feel of someone lost in our world. The images are sharp and vivid. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

A must read for those who love graphic novels as much as I do.
