Campfires Alice in Wonderland comic

I allready had some very good Alice comics here in this blog.
This here is not so much good...
It was published in 2009 by Campfire, and indian (!) publisher that has specialiced on retelling classic stories in comic form. Illustrator is and indian guy named Rajesh Nagulakonda, frankly, he didn´t do a quite good job here...
The whole artwork of this comic looks weird, the drawings look off, the colours are muddy and the paneling is chaotic. The worst part is Alice herself, that has to be one of the most ugliest versions of Alice I´ve evers seen. Its not that bad on this page thou.
Alice shrinks tiny. Again the panels in this page are too random, too chaotic. Its tedious to read that.
Alice grows big. At least the growing and shrinking looks quite good here.
And she gets small again and falls into the lake of tears. Note how strange Alice looks in some panels.
In the white rabbits house. The perspective is seriously wrong in some panels.
Even worse perspective on this page!
Those animals look awfull. Also last panel: Whats wrong with her face?
This looks all so awfully off. Perspective, proportions...
Whats wrong with her face?
Her neck looks like a curly Fleischwurst...
Doin´ it rite.
Growing in the courtroom. Why is that mouse purple? Whats wrong with her face?!?
Wait, what? Excuse me, Mr. Nagulakonda, but how does panel one work? This panel doesn´t make any sense. Whats wrong with her face?!?!?!?!
The perspectives are really awfull.
Is it me or do the characters look worse the longer this comic goes on?
WHATS! WRONG! WITH! HER! FACE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Awfull. Truely terrible. This has got to be one of the worst Alice in Wonderland comics to date. If I didn´t knew it better I´d say the Indians are taking revenge on Britain for the oppression in the colonial era by f*cking up one of ntheir most beloved childrens classics. Its almost as bad as the Classics Illustrated version I reviewed earlier. Only that there the artist didn´t give a damn while here the artists simply is not good. At all. I don´t know which is worse... However, when you see this comic, well buy it only is your collection needs completation.
