Alice in Sunderland

Okay so where do I start with this.  This is what Wikipedia has to say:

Alice in Sunderland: An Entertainment is a graphic novel by comics writer and artist Bryan Talbot. It explores the links between Lewis Carroll and the Sunderland area, with wider themes of history, myth and storytelling.

I discovered Bryan Talbot in the pages of 2000AD and in particular through the stories of Nemesis the Warlock.  It is probably easy to think of him simply as a chap who draws comic book characters but heavens his work is far more than that.  With a huge body of work and a lifetime of achievements and awards he is one of my favourites story tellers.

I stumbled upon “Alice in Sunderland” a number of years ago and still find it fascinating now and each time I read it there is more to see and more to learn.  The art style is eclectic and the story telling an intense affair but so much fun is to be had.  One day I might even fully understand what is going on but until then I will keep enjoying it.
