    I had the great pleasure of meeting with and interviewing Bryan for the book's release at a convention in Dublin, Ireland last year (interview for comics chain Sub_City in-store radio) and having read the book and spoken with Bryan about it, there's really nothing obsessive about it. It is, in fact, a delightfully accessible and thorough journey through the history of a town that also intersects the history of a cultural phenomenon (Alice in Wonderland). The book offers comics an excellent chance of gaining new admirers of the medium and of continuing the in-roads we have made so far into the book-stores and out into the wider world of culture. I would thoroughly reccommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading, art or any combination of both.
