It’s time to go on a journey that leads to shear madness, but is it one worth taking? Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

THE BRAND NEW WONDERLAND PREQUEL TRILOGY CONTINUES HERE!

Driven to desperate ends, Alice Liddle, finds herself committed to a psychward in an attempt to get her condition under control. But even behind the imagined safety of locked doors Alice can sense the madness that will not stop until not only her, but all she holds dear has fallen prey to the evil that is Wonderland. Forget everything you thought you knew and see how deep the rabbit hole goes in this psychological horror series by writers Pat Shand (Unleashed/Robyn Hood) and Raven Gregory (Wonderland trilogy/Fly).

When it comes to the realm of Wonderland there’s certainly a lot of insanity to be had for all the various players.  But after this mini-series there’s a new level of fear that should add some more dedicated followers to this corner of the Grimm universe, as pieces to a grand puzzle slowly but surely fall into place.

Raven Gregory and Pat Shand unite to tell a text heavy tale that’s simply charged with terror.  We begin to see the growth of the various members of the Liddle family, as the chaotic influence of a faraway land slowly drags them all down.  But what makes this script so good is the dialogue by the seasoned authors, it creates an atmosphere that’s infectious to the point that readers are sure to be instantly drawn into this sordid affair.

The art by Gregbo Watson and Yusuf Idris for the most part more than matches the narrative quality but there were a few bumps in the road.  I found myself underwhelmed by some renditions, specifically facial features, that just came off as rushed.  Chaotic line work for the most part conveyed the inner intent of the piece but there were times where it just looked off when compared to the entire body of work.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland: Down the Rabbit Hole #2 is another excellent entry that earns recommendation.
