Alice im Wunderland by Splitter

Here is a very neat french comic version published by the german publisher Splitter Comics last year.
The artists name is Xavier Collette. He gave the comic a dark, kinda steampunkish-gothy mood, yet the dynamic of his drawings reminds in some scenes in Grafitti.
Alice shrinks. Her outfit looks very neat in this comic.
I like the way she grows here. Also that she can´t fit completely into the panel at the bottom give a good feeling of her bigness.
I like her purple eyes. The design of the white rabbit is also interesting.
Nice sequence of Alice shrinking small again.
The White Rabbits house: To actually not show her growth, but to show the white rabbits house from the outside, and then just see her arm hanging out is an very interesting idea. Its different from most other interpretations of the scene I´ve seen so far.
She is so big that she wrecks the interior of the house just by moving in it.
And she shrinks small again.
Alice tastes the mushroom and zips smaller.
The squished look as she shrinks is very funny.
Arguing with that stupid bird...
Getting back to (relatively) normal.
Back in the hall of doors, doin it rite this time.
Alice begins to grow at the court.
Alice gets to her evidence. Again the nice idea of showing her size by making her too big for the frames of the panel.
Some nice POV-perspective in the last panel.
I really love the last panel of this page. The warm colours are great.
And the pack of cards attacks her. One thigs I really like about this comic is the incredible dynamic of the drawings. Just look at the central panel!
All in all this is a great comic. I can recommend it.

  1. This style looks like a picture done by one of the artists from the game Alice Madness Returns. I love steampunk so I'd probably love this.
    I like your blog reviewing all these Alice adaptations. Keep it up!
    (now do you translate this blog to English though) ._.

    1. Yeah, it has a similar style as "Alice - Madness returns", its not as grimmdark thou. I also like the slightly steampunkish feel of this one. ^^
