I'm super happy to contribute my Alice pieces to the graphic novel book, Graphic Canon Volume 2: from "Kubla Khan" to the the Brontë Sisters to The Picture of Dorian Gray, edited by American editor and publisher Russ Kick.

We see both of Coleridge’s most famous poems: “Kubla Khan” and “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” (the latter by British comics legend Hunt Emerson). Philosophy and science are ably represented by ink versions of Nietzsche’sThus Spake Zarathustra and Darwin’s On the Origin of Species... " Click to read more on Graphic Canon wordpress.

Many fans asked me if I could plan to make prints of my piece, " The Hole in Alice's World " for selling. So I'm still thinking about it.
Oh my gosh, Bill Carman is one of my favorite artists!
I can't take all photos. I recommend you to watch this Youtube video here.
I haven't read this whole book yet. Visit some links for reviews, availability, updates:
