Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland: Down the Rabbit Hole #3 Review

We’ve reached the middle of this mini-series, but is it starting to lose the spark that made it compelling in the first place?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

After a year of being a patient at the Appleton Mental Ward, Alice Liddle finds herself home with the family she adores and loves.  But the home she returns to is much different than the home she left.  The emotional dead zone between her and husband continues to grow.  Johnny’s behavior is becoming increasingly odd and disturbing, and Calie has begun going to great lengths to insure that she becomes nothing like her mother.  But even that pales in comparison as Alice comes to realize that the madness of Wonderland has begun to creep into this world intent on taking her family for its own heinous designs…and Alice is the only one who can see it coming.

Madness is a hard thing to capture, but this company has a history of doing just that.  This specific title highlights that ability in ways that may be shocking to curious onlookers but familiar to longtime fans.

Raven Gregory and Pat Shand combine forces to bring us a story that’s disturbing and compelling. Alice Liddle on the surface seems like she’s losing herself, but if only the ones closest to her saw what she sees.  The terrors of Wonderland spread and the text is right there to back them up as the authors give us just enough treats and suspense to cement this title as a must own for any devoted follower.

The artwork handed in by Gregbo Watson and Yusuf Idris matches the tempo of the script in ways that honestly floored me.  They capture the innate struggle for sanity while delivering some truly uneasy panels that should incite curiosity.  I have very little to complain about here as each talent brought enough quality to their work to make this issue a completely worthwhile package.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland: Down the Rabbit Hole #3 is an excellent comic that does exactly what it sets out to do.  Highly Recommended.
