Hi folks! You know you want something to add to your comic reading list, right? I admit I’m a little lax when it comes to recommending new comic series. That’s more Isa’s strength. That being said, I do have a new series gush about, and what a better time to do so than on the series’ launch date?

Alice and the Nightmare is one of the very best Wonderland-related comics I’ve seen in ages. Misha is a longtime Namesake reader and creator of this pair of gorgeous paintings of Emma/Warrick and Elaine/Fred, along with this picture of the Chopper twins and this picture of Elaine. She gave me and Isa a sneak peek at the comic at MoCCA last month, and my first reaction was “why is this not online now?”

Misha has an absolutely lovely take on the Wonderland genre, and the world-building she is doing is exquisite. Her Alice is an enchanting mix of Lewis Carroll’s original, Belle from “Beauty and the Beast,” and the long-suffering cat lover.

The first seven pages were posted today, and the comic updates on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays.

If you like Namesake, definitely give Alice and the Nightmare a try.

Which, by the way, Isa is always recommending good stuff for me to read. What is on your reading list lately?
