One of my biggest comic discoveries of the past year (or maybe even in my life) was that of the Zenescope stories focused around Grimm Fairy Tales. Although some write these series off as "for women only" they do indeed have a great deal of depth that deal with contemporary issues in a far better way than do the main companies. Among the most intriguing of these characters have been the ones that populate the Wonderland series, namely Calie Liddle, Alice Liddle and the others. In terms of the success of this series I am not entirely sure as I do not track sales at comic companies, but I do know that the concept was good enough that the Wonderland series got its own ongoing series as well as a board game (which I have to acquire when it comes out, even though I don't often play board games.) Previously with DC in the new I have noticed that they are trying to increase their market share by seemingly copying some elements of what looked good at Marvel (OMAC was kind of the DC version of the Hulk, Mister Terrific had aspects of Tony Stark) so I wonder now if the creative (or business minds) at DC have decided to channel a little Wonderland with the revival of Gemworld. Granted Amethyst has existed long before Calie, but the tone of the series seems to nearly identical, and the fact that they are respectively in months 1 and 2 of their series, it is strange that they will be growing in unrelated parallels (incidentally they are even released in the same week.) I read the first Sword of Sorcery issue and I was impressed and I am onboard now, and I was already a fan of the Wonderland series. It will be interesting to see where they go from here.
