I felt myself getting a little sad this week, reading issue #4 of Escape from Wonderland, knowing that only two issues were left in the beloved Wonderland series from friend of IoM, Raven Gregory. I’ve enjoyed this series since its very first issue, and it’s always at the top of my read pile whenever it gets released. So the prospect of a world without Wonderland is not one that I welcome lightly.
Luckily, Zenescope made us aware of three new one-shots set in the Wonderland universe, starting in May. While I don’t see them as continuing the story past what we may see in Escape from Wonderland #6, I think they’ll further the mythology with prequels and tales set during the events of the trilogy.
Check out all of the details after the jump!
Official Press Release
Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a third installment of its extremely popular Tales From Wonderland series. Tales is a spin off series that compliments Zenescope’s highly recognized Wonderland mini-series trilogy that started with Return To Wonderland in 2007 and followed with Beyond Wonderland in 2008 and lastly Escape From Wonderland which finishes it’s run next month.
“When we came up with this world there were so many ideas and characters and pieces involved that we knew telling Calie’s story would only be a piece of what we created.” said series co-creator and Zenescope VP Ralph Tedesco “This allows us to continue multiple spin off story-lines within an incredible universe that our fans have fallen in love with.”
THE WHITE KNIGHT is the first of three new Tales From Wonderland one-shots and is scheduled to hit stores in May. THE FLOWER GIRLS will follow in June and QUEEN OF HEARTS VS. MAD HATTER is set for a July release.
For those unfamiliar the comic, Zenescope’s Wonderland reinvents the mythology as a supernatural horror story which is told as a sequel to the Lewis Carroll classic. It follows a now adult Alice who also battles mental illness and her strong-willed teenage daughter, Calie, as they deal with putting a stop to an evil entity intent on crossing over from Wonderland into this world.
Zenescope Entertainment was founded in 2005 by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco and has since become one of the top independent comic book and graphic novel publishers in the world.
