Beyond Wonderland #6 (of 6) (Zenescope – Gregory / Leister / Ruffino)
The final confrontation that has been building for months – Calie versus her brother Johnny, the newly crowned sadistic Mad Hatter! New York City is the battleground for their final battle and when the smoke clears only one of them will be left among the living. Will Johnny’s evil triumph over Calie and lead to the destruction of our world? The final issue to the smash hit series is here and it is not to be missed!
This series has been great from the very beginning and it finishes strong! This being the final issue in part two of a trilogy, you know it’s not a happy ending. In fact, it concludes with a fright-filled cliffhanger that pays homage to the classic horror film ending. The “Monster” or in this case Johnny the Hatter has been destroyed… or has he? 🙂
This creative team from Zenescope is nothing short than incredible. Writing that has the right amount of “oooky” details and is character-driven while still having enough fairy tale and horror elements for this to be the be the book to beat within the genre. The art has consistently been top-notch, characterized as being both sexy and gruesome at the same time, synthesizing pages that any red-blooded fan-boy cannot look away from.
Beyond Wonderland is the new standard for intelligent horror comics!
