Come back and explore the dark corners of Dan Panosian’s Wonderland!
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 18, 2023) – Dan Panosian (An Unkindness of Ravens) and Giorgio Spalleta’s (Magic) twisted take on Alice in Wonderland will continue to blur the lines between fantasy and reality this Summer in ALICE NEVER AFTER, only at BOOM! Studios.
Alice finally got her wish. Wonderland has become her new home, but with her abuser’s avatar with the uncanny grin turning the mad residents of a moonstruck world against her, she’s clawing for a little rationality amongst the chaos.
As Alice’s sister, Edith and her childhood friend Earl fight for a way to bring her back, Alice has to contend with whether or not her torment is due to her father, herself, or maybe a curious combination of both…

“Following Alice down the rabbit hole is one thing, but getting out is harder than it looks! Ask Alice – she’s stuck there – PERMANENTLY! Join Giorgio, Francesco and I on a little trip to Wonderland… Bring some tea, we’ll provide the mushrooms and madness!” said writer Dan Panosian.
Giorgio Spalletta is a cartoonist and illustrator born in 1989. He has collaborated with Editoriale Aurea, Bugs Comics, Sergio Bonelli Editore, Editoriale Cosmo, IDW Publishing as assistant to David Messina, and as an illustrator for Ferrari.

In 2022 BOOM! Studios announced his new series Alice Ever After written by international superstar Dan Panosian.
“Dan pushed me back down the rabbit hole! It’s great to get lost in Wonderland again, I think I’ll stay there,” said artist Giorgio Spalleta.
ALICE NEVER AFTER features covers by Dan Panosian, Jenny Frison (Wonder Woman), and InHyuk Lee (Alien).
“I’m so happy Dan and Giorgio wanted to come back to their weird and macabre Wonderland. They’re having a ton of fun with how they’re approaching the story and injecting it with some more thematically heavy elements that build off the first series beautifully. Readers are going to be ecstatically surprised by what madness they have in store,” said supervising editor Bryce Carlson.
