Discover What’s Down the Rabbit Hole in the Lush But Dangerous Fringes of Victorian London This April 2022
BOOM! Studios today announced ALICE EVER AFTER, a new five-issue original series from superstar artist and writer Dan Panosian (An Unkindness of Ravens, Canary), artist Giorgio Spalletta (Red Sonja: Black, White, Red), and colorist Fabiana Mascolo, a darkly surreal tale of an adult Alice as she struggles with a choice between facing her trauma in the real world, or escaping to Wonderland… for good. Available in April 2022.
Alice first visited Wonderland as a child. Now grown up, it’s become her only escape from a cold, harsh world that feels even less real—a distant family, a tormented lover, and a father with secrets he’ll do anything to protect. But in order to return to her fantasy, Alice will need something much stronger than mushrooms. . .
Cursed with a growing addiction, Alice is forced into the twisted underbelly of London and pulled ever further from reality. Is her obsession with Wonderland truly a respite, or a one-way ticket to the dreaded… ASYLUM?
Witness Wonderland brought to life as never before, set against a vibrant but menacing Victorian London, as figures from Alice’s past adventures re-emerge in surprising new ways!
