    I read the first 10 episodes online and I absolutely loved it. I cannot wait until July to get the full story. AMAZING!

    Somewhere between a 4 and a 5 for me! I really enjoyed this take on portal fantasy, and what happens to our favorite childhood heroines after their adventures are over. It is a bit of a grown up story, though at times I found myself forgetting that the girls were older. Some things in the plot just progressed a bit too quickly, I thought, so that's my main reason for taking a star off. However, I think it's a really fun book and anyone who feels a kinship with Wendy Darling, Alice, or Dorothy wi

    a graphic novella that is above three stars...

    Maybe it was that it was in a physical format? Maybe it was that this was a gift to me from my friend?? (thank you to her!!!!! idk if she reads my trashfire reviews or immediately clicks away before grimacing, which I would totally understand) But anyways, this was so FUN to read and also really short, so it could be easily added to my reading challenge. :)

    I love Sarah Anderson and her Sarah's Scribbles, and it was so interesting to see an altered art style from her that I previously hadn't seen! There were so many really beautiful page spreads??

    The entire story was pretty entertaining, although I wouldn't say hilarious-funny as more of just... weird with sarcasm mixed in?? (I feel like from the point of a millenial/gen z, this isn't as funny vs. the perspective of someone older, like Andy Weir.) But I really liked the expansion of the character's powers as well as seeing all of the worlds be visited again by our three girls. Also, I'm 99% sure one of the characters is basically Mary Poppins.

    | Review by Annie McCann

    Andy Weir, author of The Martian, Artemis, and The Egg, is back with a graphic novel like no other. What happens to Alice when she comes back from Wonderland? Wendy from Neverland? Dorothy from Oz? This graphic novel is an interesting cross over of three completely different characters from three completely different worlds. A unique story of what becomes of these characters when the worlds we know and have read have come to an end.

    Andy Weir, author of The Martian, Artemis, and The Egg, is back with a graphic novel like no other. What happens to Alice when she comes back from Wonderland? Wendy from Neverland? Dorothy from Oz? This graphic novel is an interesting cross over of three completely different characters from three completely different worlds. A unique story of what becomes of these characters when the worlds we know and have read have come to an end.

    I thought this was such a very clever storyline and I liked how this brought three completely different tales and worlds together in a real world setting. It was interesting to see how the characters were initially perceived as mentally ill when disclosing their supernatural and otherworldly experiences. This landed them committed to wards until one day, they all meet at the Cheshire Crossing – a boarding school that acknowledges their experiences as truth and nurtures them to cope with their past experience and harness their magical world-crossing abilities.

    This isn’t like anything you would have read before, the underlying storyline for each character is present and acts as a foundation but the characters are very different to what we know in their original stories, making it a humorous and insightful twist. From their attitudes, to their illustrated appearance, to their mannerism, they are all very different to what we remember. In this story, the characters: Alice, Wendy Darling and Dorothy are now teenagers and are not content to sit still in a classroom. Soon they are dashing from one universe to the next – landing in each other’s supernatural worlds and, inadvertently, bringing the Wicked Witch and Hook together in a deadly supervillain love match. This is when it the three need to draw on their abilities to stop destruction from across each universe.

    The plot is fast paced and the story flowed quickly, it was easy to follow the dialogue in each box. The illustrations didn’t look extravagant but were simplistic and elegant. The artwork is suitable for a younger audience, however, the dialogue does include course language so please exercise discretion if you choose to read this graphic novel. If you’re a fan of graphic novels that features retellings of the classics then definitely give this one a go!

    I was not expecting to like this. I love these characters; they are my childhood heroines.

    However, somewhere along the way, I changed my expectations and I thought of this as expensive/mainstream fanfic, which made it more bearable. There were things I thought were well done (Alice being immune to the poppies in Oz, Dorthy’s silver slippers), and there were things I disliked (what about Wendy’s brothers? Alice’s sister?).

    Some of the characters were handled well and good moments of humor.

  • Tina Christopher

    This was rather charming and a lot of fun. I love the concept and Sarah's illustrations. Andy did a good job connecting the original stories to his new mash-up world.

    I got this book for free at ECCC 2019. I was excited to read it, as I love graphic novels! Unfortunately, it was just okay for me. Maybe if I had a stronger tie to the characters I would have enjoyed it? I think the art was really fantastic, but the girls didn't "read" as older teens to me, but rather maybe 13 year olds? All I know as a bookseller is that parents and kids will see the art and feel it is aimed them/their 5th grader, and the language of the book will not go over well. I'm not sayi

All I know as a bookseller is that parents and kids will see the art and feel it is aimed them/their 5th grader, and the language of the book will not go over well. I'm not saying kid's books shouldn't have the word "damn" in them, but there is language and situations that are just odd for something that looks like it is geared towards kids. Some tidying up of the story would have been great, I think folks can get away with a lot more on a webcomic that doesn't necessarily work for the Scholastic graphic novel reading crowd. That being said, there are plenty of readers here that thought it was great, so YMMV. I had a parent angrily return Raina Telgemeier's Drama to the store because they deemed it inappropriate for their 13 year old. I can see this book causing some drama (ha!) with parents as well.

    Oh, this was such a mess. I had such high hopes because I love Sarah Anderson's art and I've heard so much praise for Andy Weir. Now, the art was great. Sarah did her best with what she was given but the story. And the characters. Oh dear god.

    First off, it read like very poorly written fanfiction. It is based on The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, and Alice in Wonderland. It felt as though the author was trying to mak

    First off, it read like very poorly written fanfiction. It is based on The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, and Alice in Wonderland. It felt as though the author was trying to make the old-timey characters "hip" and relevant. But it just ended up being cringey. Like when your grandparents try to quote a vine.

    The whole thing felt very juvinelle. Relating back to the above mentioned point, this was aimed at young adults but it felt like it should have been aimed at elementray schoolers. But it didn't fit any of those age ranges.

    Overall, this was cringey, crappy and unenjoyable.

    This work is getting an awful lot of buzz and excitement and accompanying favorable reviews. This tale of Wendy, Dorothy, and Alice after their adventure coping with life now in the early 1900s told in graphic novel format by Andy Weir.

    Perhaps the same crowd who is excited about this would also be interested in the tale of Wendy, Dorothy, and Alice after their adventure coping with life now in the early 1900s told in graphic novel format by Alan Moore. Written in 1991.

    What did I think? What did I think?

    I'm sorry. You can't ask me this after I've read this book, 'what do you think'.

    Screw you, Andy Weir. Screw you for all you've done. I bought this book, and do you know what? At first, I liked it. At first I decided 'hey, i'll give it a shot! he's a friend of my uncle' and you know what I got?

    A HEAPING PILE OF CRAP. Turns out your little "book"? Yeah? Had traces of LSD on it. I live in Detroit, and do you know what? I lost my job. I lost my job because of your

    One star. Go to hell.
