Candlewick/Templar, (96p) An interplanetary landscape serves as the backdrop to Alice s journey in this fantastical rendition, which fits into a sturdy slipcase. Alice whose long blonde hair is streaked with gray and facial features seem almost haunted encounters a cast of familiar characters who, in Matthews s hands, have exaggerated, alien qualities: an especially bestial March Hare and a goblinlike Mad Hatter appear at the tea party, as a living tree looks on. In addition to surreal and vibrant full-spread scenes, b&w spot art often appears beside Carroll s text. Matthews s original and psychedelic conception befits the story s unworldly essence. All ages.
