Review of “Grimm Fairy Tales: Return to Wonderland”

Grimm Fairy Tales:  Return to WonderlandGrimm Fairy Tales: Return to Wonderland by Raven Gregory

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A demented twist on my favorite classic, this first in a trilogy of graphic novels was overall entertaining. Filled with fan service, guts, & gore, each page was something to be marveled. A lot of negative reviews state that the fan service and borderline nudity were over the top and only satisfactory for teenage boys, but I disagree. If that’s not your thing, then this series isn’t for you. If you’re down with it, though, I thought this piece takes the rabbit hole in a fresh and interesting direction, if not incredibly dark and overtly sexual. The ending is a bit weak, but it pays homage to Carroll’s original work throughout and has left me curious about how things are going to play out in the sequel.
