Forewarning

Esteemed unsuspecting reader, if you are looking forward to reading “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” as originally written by Lewis Carroll please close this book and search elsewhere. The book you now hold in your hands is ”Alice’s Epic Adventures in Wonderland”, a violent and twisted version of Mr. Carroll’s story. It holds true to naught but very essential elements of the original tale whereas the plot, characters and dialogues have been drastically warped to fit this version’s nature. If perchance you are looking forward to reading a thrilling graphic novel or a different take on the Disney themed original then go ahead and read on. Hopefully this forewarning has opened your eyes to the blasphemies that you will encounter inside, the suffering you will endure if you hold dear to the original and dare not see it thrashed or the joys you shall experience if you dare explore my epic interpretation of this tale.


Acknowledments To Lewis Carroll for coming up with such a fantastic story. To the illustration team at Capcom for their Soul Calibur characters. To Karla Despradel for her help as a model. To Marco de la Cruz for help with the Cat’s illustration. Special thanks to all.

Alice was more startled by the impact than by the fact that she was in the presence of a small monster. “I’ve got it now!” cried the Rabbit. Shocked, Alice quickly started to her feet, sword in hand, for it flashed across her mind that she had just been

robbed. She ran across

the field after the thief, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under a tree. Alice hesitated before the hole, it was large enough for her to fit, and angered as she was she crawled in to pursue the white thief. She could hear his hasty footsteps ahead so she sped up. The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself running through a very large and strange stairwell.
