    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Apr 24, 2022

    So while there's a chamber inside me where Charles Dodgson's words echo that Alice "seems changed a good deal, and not for the better," another part of me is fascinated with where this story is heading, and what role Wonderland will continue to play in it. It certainly helps that Giorgio Spalletta and Fabiana Mascolo have rendered this new Alice adventure exquisitely and with loving detail in every panel. I'm certainly hooked, even if somewhat morbidly so, and will definitely come along for the ride into the next issue. You should too. Read Full Review

    Alice Ever After #1 gives us a good look at who Alice is and how her world functions. The story's enchanting and draws you in with the artwork. Dan Panosian has created something very special here, and I'm already lamenting the fact that there are only 5 issues in this series. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 6, 2022

    Spalletta and Panosian deliver some great art on every page. The characters look great and the world of the story is perfectly divided by the artistic styles. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Apr 5, 2022

    A dark, grown-up sequel that takes a twisted look at what happened next for Alice. Panosian, Spalletta and Mascolo each do a stunning job of bringing this tale to the page, and I absolutely can't wait to see just how far down the rabbit hole this story is going to go. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Apr 6, 2022

    Alice Ever After #1 is hampered by the two-dimensional supporting characters, but Alice is, as always, a fascinating character, and the contrasting art styles elevate the book, making this a slightly above average continuation of Alice's story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - John Schaidler Apr 6, 2022

    With a gritty setting peopled by seedy characters, this debut sets the stage nicely for the series to come. Let's hope future installments raise the stakes and crank up the action. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Apr 15, 2022

    This book bears great potential. The premise is engaging and the art is decent. It could develop the story in a brand new way - which is saying a lot considering it's an Alice in Wonderland adaptation. But the writing needs more engagement, otherwise I don't believe readers will come back next month. Read Full Review

    Alice Ever After has the clear potential to reframe Carroll's iconic story for older readers, and this first issue is twisted enough to keep most any reader hooked. Read Full Review

    This is a really cool concept. After hearing about this book from a podcast I listen to called comic book club i had to pick this up. I'm really intrigued by the story and look forward to issue two

    Here we find ourselves with another reimagining of an older Alice still chasing the elusive highs of wonderland.

    The art itself is a bit of a rollercoaster, at moments (especially in wonderland) the art really pops and looks well fleshed out. For the most part though it's not pulling up trees and borders on being adequate at best.

    As for the story, it's pretty much the same formula we're used to, an aged Alice turning to drugs to fall back within the peculiar world she visited as a youngster. It's gritty enough in it's telling and progresses well however it's not particularly memorable.

    To summarize, it isn't a bad book but it isn't ground breaking in any aspect and won't be the first book people will want more
