Comic book fun with ‘Alice in Wonderland’

While the book published in 1865, it has continued to amuse readers, even in an updated comic book form. Several comic book adaptations have been made, between 1951 and 2005; there have been four versions of “Alice in Wonderland” in comic book form, in total.
