MARVEL UK'S ALICE IN WONDERLAND HARDBACK

Here's another MARVEL UK oddity that I reckon most hardcore collectors are oblivious of:


The ALICE IN WONDERLAND comics adaptation, published in hardback by the British Bullpen sometime in the early 1980s. The book is undated but it does give Jadwin House as the company address,which places it before the company relocated to Redan Place.

There's also no clue as to whether this was a standalone book or whether it was one of several titles. My guess is that it's the latter, and there were several similar literary adaptations in the range, but I can't be sure.

Predictably, the strip first appeared in the States in MARVEL CLASSIC COMICS. Issue 35 to be precise.

  1. Any idea who did that cover? Looks like it could be John Ridgway.

  3. When's exactly the cut-off line between Jadwin House and Redan Place? I think the dating of this volume should be placed as late as possible, the price and format of this book look very late-1980s. I know this volume (I think I was the one who signalled it to you in the first place a couple of years ago ;) ), I'm trying to catalogue all Marvel UK publications and I think I tentatively dated this Alice in Wonderland to 1988.
