Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans to publish an ongoing Wonderland comic book series. The new ongoing series is scheduled for a July 2012 release with issue #1 set to debut at Comic Con International in San Diego. The series is being developed by Raven Gregory, Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco, the same creative team behind Zenescope’s hit mini-series such as Return to Wonderland and Alice in Wonderland.
The Wonderland on-going series will tell the story of Alice’s now adult daughter, Calie Liddle and Calie’s teenage daughter, Violet, as they attempt to lead a normal life after the horrific events of their past. However, Calie knows all too well that there is no such thing as a normal life once Wonderland has you. And the realm of insanity will be coming for her and her daughter soon enough.
Zenescope will also be releasing a four issue mini-series starting in May entitled Call of Wonderland which will lead into the Wonderland on-going series and will serve as both a re-introduction to the Wonderland realm and as a jumping-on point for new readers.
“We realized that fans want more and more of this universe so creating an ongoing series following the life of a fan-favorite character like Calie made perfect sense.” said Zenescope Editor-in-chief Ralph Tedesco “The important thing was to also come up with a story that invites new readers who are looking to dive into our version of Wonderland and that’s what Call of Wonderland will provide. This allows us to appease both hardcore fans and newcomers alike.”
Call of Wonderland will be written by Dan Wickline with the first issue now available for pre-order in the March edition of Previews. The Wonderland ongoing will be written by Raven Gregory with issue 1 featuring cover art by superstar artist J. Scott Campbell, Greg Horn and Eric Basaldua. You can pre-order Wonderland #1 in Diamond’s May Previews.
