Greetings fellow searchers and welcome to Hatter M: Far from Wonder, Volume 1 detailing and mapping the adventures of Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan, expert bladesman, and ranking High Cut of the Wonderland Millinery.
Who are we?
The Hatter M Institute for Paranormal Travel is a devout assemblage of radical historians, cartographers and geographic theorists pledged to uncovering and documenting the full spectrum journey of Hatter Madigan as he traversed our world from 1859-1872 searching for Princess Alyss of Wonderland.
Tattered, annotated maps and coded journals discovered in a Victorian era trunk first profiled a truly extreme traveler in search of something profound, but the ultimate questions remained, who was this man and what did he search for? With the recent revelations of the controversial exposé The Looking Glass Wars, the mystery of how Hatter and Alyss had come to be in our world was illuminated. Despite the shrill and fanatical efforts of a militant faction of the Lewis Carroll Society to suppress it, the truth behind the fiction of Alice in Wonderland was finally told and a highly guarded literary lie EXPOSED! Alice Liddell did not fall down a rabbit hole. Princess Alyss was lost in our world. In short, Lewis Carroll changed everything!
Located in the once resplendent 1930's deco area of Los Angeles, California known as the 'Miracle Mile', the Hatter M Institute through the medium of comics and ably assisted by the other worldly talent of artist Ben Templesmith, is committed to disseminating the stranger than fiction adventures of this heroic royal bodyguard as he searched for his lost princess. As your turn the pages uncovering the long buried history, take heart in the knowledge that truth is always waiting to be revealed to those who are willing to search.
