Official Press Release

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that their next classic adaptation will take readers down the rabbit hole into the astonishing world of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with their upcoming The Complete Alice in Wonderland. As with Dynamite's recently released The Complete Dracula, this comic book adaptation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland will be a complete adaptation and not a reinvention.

Dynamite's Complete Alice in Wonderland will be written by John Reppion and Leah Moore (the same writing team bringing fans Dynamite's The Complete Dracula and Sherlock Holmes) and will be based on the original story by Lewis Carroll.

"The Complete Alice is a project that we're very excited about," John Reppion stated. "People seem to have fixated on the idea of re-imagining the Alice stories for a long time now but Lewis Carroll's tales are already so fantastic their logic so beautifully and eerily surreal yet familiar that we feel they more than stand up today and will work wonderfully in comics."

"When we first discussed The Complete Alice In Wonderland, Leah and John were brought up as we were very happy with their Complete Dracula story and Sherlock Holmes story," stated Dynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "Alice seemed like a ‘no brainer' to bring them on board. When we asked them, they immediately agreed, and we can't wait to bring the ‘dynamite' story to fans."

Lewis Carrolls stories of young Alice and her adventures in Wonderland began in 1865 and remain incredibly popular with children as well as adults to this day. The first book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, follows the imagination of Alice down a rabbit hole and into a world filled with anthropomorphic animals and bewildering characters such as the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, and, of course, the Cheshire Cat.
