Discover What’s Down the Rabbit Hole in the Lush But Dangerous Fringes of
Victorian London This April 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 19, 2022) – BOOM! Studios today announced ALICE EVER AFTER, a new five-issue original series from superstar artist and writer Dan Panosian (An Unkindness of Ravens, Canary), artist Giorgio Spalletta (Red Sonja: Black, White, Red), and colorist Fabiana Mascolo, a darkly surreal tale of an adult Alice as she struggles with a choice between facing her trauma in the real world, or escaping to Wonderland… for good. Available in April 2022.
Alice first visited Wonderland as a child. Now grown up, it’s become her only escape from a cold, harsh world that feels even less real—a distant family, a tormented lover, and a father with secrets he’ll do anything to protect. But in order to return to her fantasy, Alice will need something much stronger than mushrooms. . .
Cursed with a growing addiction, Alice is forced into the twisted underbelly of London and pulled ever further from reality. Is her obsession with Wonderland truly a respite, or a one-way ticket to the dreaded… ASYLUM?
Witness Wonderland brought to life as never before, set against a vibrant but menacing Victorian London, as figures from Alice’s past adventures re-emerge in surprising new ways!
Dan Panosian is an acclaimed comic book writer and artist who hails from Cleveland, Ohio and lives in Los Angeles, California. He is best known for his work as an illustrator for Marvel, DC Comics, and Image Comics, as well as his work in the video game, film, and television industries. Panosian created the original comic book series An Unkindness of Ravens with BOOM! Studios and Slots for Image Comics with Skybound Entertainment, and continues to illustrate covers for Marvel Entertainment, DC Comics, BOOM! Studios, and more.
“If one pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small—consider this book an alternative pill that puts a twisted smile on your pretty little face. Enjoy responsibly,” said Panosian.
Giorgio Spalletta is an artist from Italy. Spalletta attended the International School of Comics in Rome, where he now works as a teacher, in addition to working as an illustrator for Mostri, Alieni, and Gangster with Bugs Comics, Border Town with Editoriale Aurea, Caput Mundi with Editoriale Cosmo (official selection of the 2018 Micheluzzi Award for Best Comic Book Series) and Orfani: sam and La Divina Congrega with Sergio Bonelli Editore. In 2021, Spalleta made his US debut on Red Sonja: Black White, Red for Dynamite Entertainment.
“Dan is one of my favorite authors! I’m really glad to contribute to his version of Alice, and with Fabiana’s colours on our Wonderland, this series will be unforgettable.” said Spalleta. “Put on some Jefferson Airplane, and follow us into ALICE EVER AFTER ‘cause we’re already deep down the rabbit hole!”
ALICE EVER AFTER #1 features main cover art by Dan Panosian, as well as variant cover art by highly acclaimed illustrators Jenny Frison (Something is Killing the Children) and Adam Hughes (Black Widow).
“Get ready to get swept away by this dark, grown up sequel to the story of Alice in Wonderland that could only have come from the minds of Dan, Giorgio, and Fabiana,” said Kathleen Wisneski, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “If you think you already know everything there is to know about Alice and the wild crew of characters she’s met during her adventures… you have no idea what’s in store for you!”

Godzilla and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Meet for the First Time in Crossover Comic Series from IDW
SAN DIEGO, CA (December 16, 2021) – IDW, under license by Toho International, Inc., and in partnership with BOOM! Studios and Hasbro, announces today an all-new five-issue comic book event, Godzilla Vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, bringing together two titanic franchises for the first time!
Launching in March 2022, this monthly miniseries will be a collaboration between two of the comic industry’s most exciting talents, writer Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Green Lantern, Godzilla: Cataclysm) and artist Freddie Williams II (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-Man/ThunderCats).
When Rita Repulsa uses an ancient artifact to transport herself to a universe without Power Rangers, she finds herself in a world with aliens, kaiju, and… Godzilla! Hoping to annihilate this new foe, Rita hurls her own terrible creatures into battle. But she never expects that the Rangers have followed her to this alternate reality, pitting the Dinozords themselves head-to-head with the King of the Monsters!
“I am honored to bring two iconic franchises like Godzilla and the Power Rangers together. I’ve been a massive Godzilla fan since before I could read, and my love for the King of Monsters has never faded in all those years. Likewise, I’ve always loved Tokusatsu superheroics, and vividly remember watching the first episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers when it came out. This is a crossover that I suspect will take readers by surprise—but it makes complete sense!” says Bunn. “Writing for these characters is a dream come true for this giant monster-loving kid-at-heart, and when readers pick up this book, I want them to feel that sense of awe and wonder that these characters have inspired for decades!”
“This will be the biggest, most stratospheric crossover I’ve ever drawn!” says Williams. “It’s the combination of so many big genres: Giant Monsters vs. Mechs, martial arts vs. science and magic, with lots of collateral destruction! I’ve been watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episodes and Godzilla films to submerge my brain space, and have been reminded how fantastic and charming these designs are and how much fun prior creators had with their designs. I’m excited to contribute to the long legacies of these franchises!”
“We couldn’t be more thrilled about this latest crossover event at IDW Publishing,” says editor Tom Waltz. “Not just because a story featuring both Godzilla and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers checks off every awesome box on a comic-book crossover list, but also because we’ve got two of the best in the business — Cullen Bunn and Freddie Williams II — combining to bring it into being.”
“When BOOM! Studios first stepped into the world of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, we had some big plans and huge dreams, so it’s amazing to be able to bring to life the biggest and most exciting monster mash-up of the century,” says Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “It’s been an incredible process to put together this epic series with our friends at IDW, Toho, and Hasbro. We can’t wait to show fans everything they could ever hope to see and more from the King of the Monsters and the Power Rangers universe.”
Godzilla Vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by series artist Freddie Williams II, Cover B by E.J. Su (Transformers), and a special connecting Retailer Incentive edition by Williams II which combines with the RI covers for issues #2-5 to make a glorious panorama of kaiju and Zord conflict!
