Review of "Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #1," comic

 Review of

Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #1, comic

Five out of five stars

Recurrent dreams similar to “Alice in Wonderland”

 This is a delightful story of a set of recurrent dreams of a young boy called Nemo. He is selected by the officials of Slumberland to take a series of journeys to that wonderful and bizarre kingdom. There is magic, quirky characters and semi-nonsensical dialog.

 For example, when Nemo and his Slumberland escort are walking on a bridge across a river of flowing chocolate a monster that looks like a dragon in a Chinese parade pops up. The escort says, “ It’s the triple-tongued Binthromium!”

 Readers exposed to literature will recognize strong hints of the classic works of Lewis Carroll and L. Frank Baum. The captions are extremely colorful and combined with the very high quality coloration, remind you of the film “The Wizard of Oz.” It is a comic for children that adults will love to read to them.
