Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a novel by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Set some six months later than the earlier book, Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. Though not quite as popular as Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass includes such celebrated verses as "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter", and the episode involving Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
Classics Illustrated comics returns with this dismal adaptation of Carroll's second Alice tale. Most of the charming paradoxes and silly puns are salvaged in gs the text, arranged in columns beneath the artwork rather than in word balloons. Consequently, a lot of very small illustrations are needed to carry the dialogue between Alice and the many looking-glass characters--to the detriment of the visual appeal of the work. g Baker ( Why I Hate Saturn ) is a good caricaturist, but the drawings often appear perfunctory and the color choicesg flat, garish and awkward. At its best (the Humpty Dumpty scenes), the g sketchy linework seems more appropriate to a realistic narrative, a thriller or a political satire, and the g book lacks throughout the careful design and rendering that a children's classic requires.
Read this after watching the new Alice in Wonderland and this book us a lot closer to the movie than the original
A lovely tale, with lots of adorable poetry intermixed! A nice fresh look on Alice, most is new for those who have only seen the movie or read the first book.
So I just watched the original Alice in wonderland for the first time and it was pretty psycho not to say in the least and that's what made me wanna read this book and it was actually by far one of the most interesting reads I have ever come across. To be honest, it takes you on a pretty intense ride when you're trying to imagine everything and take in all the meaning of this piece in all at once it kinda leaves you in a what just happened kinda feeling. If I could describe it, it's like the end of the movie inception where you think you understand it but you really just don't know what to think at all
