In Volume 3, The Nature of Wonder, Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan follows the Glow of the setting sun into America's wild west in search of Wonderland's lost princess. Hatter's adventures will include a shamanic vision quest in the Grand Canyon and tracking Black Imagination through San Francisco's Barbary Coast where he discovers an astounding clue to his own haunted past.
It is no secret that I LOVE the Looking Glass Wars series, its spinoffs, and its author. This series as provided me with hours upon hours of entertainment. And taken my fascination with Alice in Wonderland to a whole new level.
In the third volume of Hatter M., The Nature of Wonder, our hero has traveled across the pond to America in order to seek the assistance of President Lincoln. And with the help of his new friends, Agent Alabaster and Agent Philomena Ark, Hatter will uncover more sources of Black Imagination.. while we, the readers, get to view more secrets from our hero's past.
Frank Beddor's mind never ceases to amaze me. From his original series, The Looking Glass Wars, to the Hatter M. series, Beddor continues to only get better. The Nature of Wonder simply put was amazing. Like the previous installments, The Nature of Wonder contains so much action and adventure. You will not want to put this graphic novel down.
Aside from all the excitement of the novel itself, The Nature of Wonder contains page after page of beautiful artwork. Yes, it is a graphic novel so artwork is to be expected. But Sami Makkonen outdoes himself. The drawing are rough, scratchy, and perfectly fits the mood of the novel. I don't think that Hatter Madigan could have asked for a better representation of himself. Bottom line, if you have not given Hatter M. a chance, you are missing out. Run, don't walk!
