How I Got It: I own it!

It’s a mad, mad, mad world as Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan’s maniacal quest to find Alyss continues! In Volume 2, Mad With Wonder, Hatter follows the Glow from London to the battlefields of America’s Civil War in search of the Princess who must some day be Queen. The America that Hatter encounters is a sprawling, wounded, boiling landscape of innocence and energy run amok. The war is tearing the country apart, yet Hatter must maintain his sanity in this maelstrom of holy rollers, child healers, prophetic snake handlers, deranged outlaws, and passionate southern belles. As Hatter searches he learns he is not the only Wonderland presence that has found its way to the Promised Land. Queen Redd’s black imagination is fueling the Civil War and threatening our world with her evil!

Just like Volume 1… love the storyline, don’t really love the art.  This volume went much darker than the first.  We see Hatter interacting with Confederate soldiers during the Civil War.  I loved the section where Hatter is imprisoned in an asylum.  Such colorful characters!  I’m wondering how the series ends.  Guess I’ll have to read Volume 3 and find out. Hopefully I like that one more.
