Alice in Comic-book land Pt.1

Hello Everybody!! I'm finally back, even though probably none of you missed me. I just haven't been feeling inspired lately, but I'm back in a groove. Well, I've been inspired by both the posts of Michael Sporn and Steven Hartley's mosaics. Because of that, I've decided to post the pages from the comic book version of Disney's Alice in Wonderland.

From Dell's Junior Treasury No. 1 (1955)
Cover Illustration and Inside Cover: Bob Grant

Writing: Del Connell
Art: Riley Thompson (Pencils) and Bob Grant (Inks)

Since when did Figaro belong to Alice? I guess he assumed it was safer with her than Geppeto, what with him harassing Figaro and getting swallowed by a Whale.

What? No Walrus and the Carpenter?

I hope you've enjoyed. More to come!

It's great to see you back on posting - I missed ya from posting!

It feels the right time to post "Alice" and it's always a pleasure to see you posting some rare comic books.

The writer of the comic "Del Connell" was in fact credited for Story on the film "Alice in Wonderland".

I always try to scan my Beano comics and I always have trouble with the scanner (maybe it's not big enough), and I was hoping soon that I'll post some Beano Annuals, if I scan them successfully.

Yep, I'm back. I'll be posting some more comics and maybe some more cartoons from Simplicissimuss. Once my school quarter ends, I hope to do more in-depth articles, but I need to do more research for them. Thank you for your support Steven. It means a lot to me.
