Hatter M - Frank Beddor

I’m not an Alice in Wonderland fan, just never really got into it. I read this graphic novel, for the artwork not the story. I discovered the art of Ben Templesmith when reading Wormwood and so I decided to try this to see more of it. I like the washed almost watercolor look of his art.

I don’t have much to say about this graphic novel. The story is about Alyss who has been kidnapped from Wonderland and the bodyguard with odd talents and a deadly hat, who is searching for her. He travels to different places, following the odd glowing lights, saving many girls from an imagination draining machine and learning of other enemies of Wonderland. Not a terribly interesting story, but I did enjoy the art.
