Before Calie's first encounter with the looking glass, her mother's mind was rocked by her own adventures in Wonderland. Meet Alice Liddle - mother, housewife, and just a little mad. As Alice's mind slips further and further from reality, a very real and very obsessed man turns his unwanted affections toward her. When Alice confronts her stalker, she sets in motion a series of events that Calie will one day have to face.

    While there is a decent setup for this new nemesis in Calie's life, his introduction is also somewhat of an x factor. He is built up well here, but his place in the overall story is a mystery as there is essentially no context for his appearance. The same general level of performance is here for the series as Heflin manages another engaging story, but it remains to be seen exactly how this fits into the bigger picture, as it is still somewhat undefined. At the very least it proves that she has an understanding of what made the series so popular to begin with and can channel that same concept into her own version of the series. The only issue is that it is somewhat non sequitur, it will likely be incorporated into the story line in a meaningful way in the coming issues, but for the moment it is an outlier in terms of its placement in the series, and so while engaging it takes a way a bit from the overall narrative of the series.

    Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland #39 is the type of comic I love to grade. It's a continuation of a currently running arc that continues to toy with characters I've grown fond of without cheapening analreadyestablished monthly title. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Sep 2, 2015

    However, Marc Rosete's artwork does save the story from mediocrity. The madness of Wonderland, especially the initial confrontation of Ace and the King, sets the mood where you can almost smell the dank atmosphere of that world. Even if you take the text off the page, the sinister glance of those cold pits Ace calls eyes are haunting and the story doesn't need words to describe what is happening to the characters.

    Stronger visuals are needed to make this a stronger book. The story is entertaining but is often disrupted by awkward art. Read Full Review
