    Alice Never After #1 is a strong start to this dark twist on the Wonderland story. In exploring the impact Alice's traumatic life experiences had on her mental health Dan Panosian and Giorgio Spalletta do a great job tackling how escapism can blur the lines of reality and fantasy. This leads to adding importance to how everyone around Alice plays an important role in her journey. Even if you didn't read the series Panosian and Spalletta's worked on that preceded Alice Never After this first issue gets you invested in the journey this sequel will take the reader on.
