Manga Review: Are You Alice?, Vol. 1 [Paperback]

Manga Review

I've finished "Are You Alice?, Vol. 1" by Ai Ninomiya.

Product Description

A disillusioned young man in search of "something" stumbles into the weird and wacky world of Wonderland, where, as "Alice," he is thrust into a murderous game of "Kill the White Rabbit" by command of the ruler of the land, the Queen of Hearts. But while Alice rails against the role that has been forced upon him, he has little choice but to comply. For in Wonderland, not sticking to the script can have deadly consequences.

My Review:

This is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland with a gender reversal.  Alice is a guy this time around and he's certainly more aggressive then the original Alice.  He doesn't hesitate to voice his opinion or whip out a gun to threaten you with.

I really like this manga with it's interesting storyline, gender reversal who has a fiery personality and threatens you with words and actions and the illustrations are nicely drawn.
