After years of being terrorized by the evils of Wonderland, Calie Liddle has finally triumphed over the Realm of Dreams. However, in Wonderland, even the ultimate victory has a price. When she defeated the Queen of Spades, Calie became the White Queen of Wonderland… and now the realm that once existed to torment her family is in her care. With the White Rabbit and newly reformed Dark Cheshire by her side, Calie seeks to purify Wonderland.

But when Sela Mathers, the Guardian of the Nexus, finds out that the evils being purged from Wonderland are spilling over into Earth, the two most powerful women in the Grimm Universe will clash!

    First: Hell yeah! on the crossover.
    Second: you ruined Warlord of Oz for me by killing off Dorothy in the One-Shot.
    Third: Why is Keres back? I thought she died and gave her power to that guy in No Tomorrow, which made no sense as a series, especially given her presence in Wonderland and her connection to the Ebony Blade for like ten panels ever. Unless someone like Shang or the Keepers (or the Dark Queen) gave her the Rip Van Winkle treatment (which reminds me–we haven’t seen Morrigan in awhile) and now she’s filling a Sela/Belinda type role for one side or the other. Or maybe I’m in spoiler territory?
    And finally: make up your mind whether you’re going to show/list variant exclusives or not. There are two Red Carpet covers for Realm War that appear on the summary page but are not listed or shown in this post, and one mentioned elsewhere online that is not even depicted in the issue (same goes for Tales Of Terror #1, GFT #100, Wonderland #25, and anything else I forgot to mention). Thank you.

  • Geeky

    In Age of darkness, where’s Robyn? and why all theses deads? WTF really?
    and when do you release this issues? there is no date ^^

  • http://itsjusttheticket.blogspot.com/ Sean Wilkinson

    To answer your question, Geeky, at some point between her AOD One-Shot and Realm War #1, she became the Child of Darkness (as hinted at in the end of her 1Shot). Robyn will be back in RW#2, and word is there will be a Robyn Ongoing in the near future that may take place between Legend and AOD.
    I agree, the deaths suck. But Sela and Venus didn’t stay dead (and apparently neither did Keres), so I’m looking forward to Phoenix, the daughter from The Juniper Tree, the Red Queen II, Rapunzel, Tiger Lily, and maybe Dorothy and a few others being written back from the grave. With all the realms smashed together on Earth, I get the feeling that all bets are off.

    • Geeky

      Yep i saw for Robyn but… the ongoing is before AoD? Why? Why can’t we place the Ongoing serie directly after the event of AoD (like Calie and Violet for Wonderland after the issue #26)

      the chronology of GFT is a bit difficult. A lot of series are always BEFORE Aod. like Helsing, Hercule Payne.
      Even for Oz, there is the One Shot (75 years in the future) AND Warlord of Oz. or the Wonderland Universe. Return to wonderland (2007) is released before Alice in Wonderland (2012). Why can’t Zenescope publish all there stories in a nice order. We can’t understand Wonderland if we start in 2007. We must wait 4years to see why Alice is what she is…

      I think the reboot can be a nice idea… and pleaaaase don’t kill Red or i’ll scream so much….

    I thought Realm War was just going to end the AoD storyline while GFT 101, Robyn Hood Ongoing, and Wonderland 26 truck along with new storylines.

  • http://itsjusttheticket.blogspot.com/ Sean Wilkinson

    I have no real details on Robyn’s Ongoing. I just know that the end of Legend (which was pre-AOD) sounded like a good jump-off point given what I read about the Ongoing, and it has to start before AOD because in Realm War #2, she’s supposed to be evil, and by definition, she can’t be a leading heroine if she’s evil (unless she’s one of Sela’s plants in the Horde and she’s somehow faking pure evil, which would be awesome). In any case, the great thing about ongoing series is that they don’t have to take place entirely before any given storyline event.
    Have patience, guys. Not every character can have the instant appeal that the Hood girls have. Return to Wonderland didn’t make any sense the first time I read it, but the more they expanded the Wonderland universe, the better it got. Now I love the series.
    I would like to see a return to the Flower Girls storyline after AOD, though, and I think Lori deserves more page time, too.
