Cheshire Crossing
Cheshire Crossing | Andy Weir
6 posts | 11 read | 4 to read
From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Martian and Artemis, and illustrated by webcomics creator Sarah Andersen, this graphic novel brings together the heroines of Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and The Wizard of Oz in a charming fantasy mash-up as they join forces to defend their worlds from villainous threats. Pulled from the pages of beloved children's fantasy stories, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy meet at a supernatural boarding school where they're meant to learn how to use and control their special, superheroic powers. When villains like the Wicked Witch and Captain Hook form an evil alliance to conquer the worlds of Oz, Neverland, and Wonderland, the girls must work together to save not only these fantastical lands but also the Earth itself. This "storybook meets superheroes" graphic novel features the original magical girls of fantasy embarking on exciting supernatural adventures in a tale that could only come from the imagination of Andy Weir and the illustrative sorcery of Sarah Andersen.

I loved this graphic novel. Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy can all travel to other worlds. But their world thinks they are crazy. What happens when they meet.

This was just ok - it jumped all over the place, and some parts confused me (as they looked like flashbacks, but went straight back to present day), but it was overall an ok representation of some of my favorite childhood book/movie characters. It was kind of neat that these characters were a little older and got to travel back to their worlds and into the other worlds as well.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3.5)

Slipped in a little light reading during some free time this morning. I love this graphic novel teaming up a teenaged Alice from Alice in Wonderland, Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, and Wendy from Peter Pan in an all new adventure exploring all three of the worlds from their stories! So much fun! Oh, and did I mention it‘s by Andy Weir?! 😜

Today‘s tea is Strawberry Green.

The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan all combined into one epic crossover...what is not to love?! I enjoyed this more than I thought I would and I hope there will be future installments.

So disappointed in this one. The premise is great (Alice, Dorothy, and Wendy end up at the same boarding school and travel together between Wondeland, Oz, and Neverland), but the story itself is not. This book has no idea who the audience is (should be middle grade but Weir likes the word f*ck too much). I'm interested to see what others think. @AthenaWins I'll pass this on to Kailie and she can give us a middle grade review!

AthenaWins Lol. It's like he's a one hit wonder. 8mo
everlocalwest @AthenaWins I never even read Artemis because everyone said it sucked. Did you try it? 8mo
AthenaWins @everlocalwest Yeah. I read it last year. I enjoyed it enough to finish. I even liked the MC. But it was a little lackluster. I kind of wonder if the publisher is controlling him too much. The Martian was self-published before it was picked up. 8mo

everlocalwest @AthenaWins I doubt it, it's usually the other way around. A lot of success causes authors to ignore an editor's good advice. Interesting note, this graphic novel was written and published on his website and got picked up because of the success of The Martian. Maybe I'll try Artemis on audio and see if we jive... 8mo
AthenaWins @everlocalwest Don't expect fireworks. Lol 8mo
Schlinkles I enjoyed both Artemis and the Martian, but this was a hot mess! It completely missed the mark for the intended audience and was derivative of Lost Girls by Alan Moore (which I personally didn‘t care for, but just to point out that this wasn‘t a new idea). 5mo
