Good Friday everyone , hope your first day of spring is going good for you . Today I am going to go in a little different direction . Some of you might not know but I am a closet comic book and graphic novel junkie. I blame that on my best friend and his giving me my first walking dead omnibus. But I do digress. So today I am reviewing a graphic novel WONDERLAND volume 5 ( Grimm Fairy tales presents )
As an Age of Darkness spreads across the realms, pushing the Queens of Wonderland into conflict, Calie must take a final stand. Journeying into Wonderland to save her daughter Violet, Calie assembles a team of warriors in effort to take control of Wonderland... for good! Collects Wonderland #21-25.
I started this series awhile back and I loved it . It is out there and the characters are so dam cool. In this issue Callie is heading back to Wonderland to help her daughter . There are some parts at the beginning of this book that will make you WTH and try and figure them out but as you dive into the story you find it becoming more polished and refined , taking the crazy factor down just a bit. You are taken on a wild ride through the pages.
There are a myriad of characters in this book . You meet the Queen of Diamonds , The Queen of Clubs . Callie hooks up with Hazel , who is an assassin. We also find out who Void is and the true bad guy hiding in the background . And he is evil and I mean evil. After all the puff of the first chapters the author dives right in and explains the characters and how they came into being .
Over all this graphic novel is a fun escape . The illustrations are not so over the top as last issues . But done very well , the story finally lets us in on a lot of background which is good seen as the next edition is the wind up for the book. It was a good read that will keep any comic geek reading all night long. So if you are a geeky comic book geek like me check it out .
