The Looking Glass Wars: Crossfire (HC)

Rally the Chessmen!  Wonderland is under attack!

Dashing rogue Ovid Grey, an ex-Milliner, is ordered to Earth by Queen Alyss and charged with recovering a shard of Heart Crystal that’s powering cross-realm riots of Black Imagination. He teams with a British secret agent and embarks on a quest that takes him from London to Venice, discovering along the way that, to succeed, he’ll very much have to act the criminal.

Crystal shard in hand, Ovid returns home with the devastating intel that Wonderland is about to be attacked by the barbaric tribes of neighboring Boarderland. Ovid vows to fight for Queen Alyss, who activates the Chessboard; battalions of Chessmen take to the streets of Wondertropolis and beyond, occupying defensive positions.  And then…

They come: axe-wielding Boarderlanders eager for blood, galloping in on the mutant jabberwocky known as jabbers.

Black Imagination, rampaging Rumble Makers, and the future of Wonderland: all are caught in the crossfire of this thrilling follow-up to the New York Times bestselling trilogy, The Looking Glass Wars.

Once again Wonderland’s forces of light must unite to battle the darkness.

Literary Sleuth and world creator FRANK BEDDOR dared to expose the true story of Wonderland in the New York Times bestselling young adult trilogy THE LOOKING GLASS WARS. To satisfy the awakened curiosity of his readers he continued to tell the parallel adventures of Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan’s search for the lost princess in the graphic novel series HATTER M. A Hollywood film producer whose credits include There’s Something About Mary, Frank is currently producing The Juliet at Warner Bros based on the short story “Fondly Fahrenheit” by Alfred Bester. He is also developing THE LOOKING GLASS WARS as a Broadway musical. While studying at the University of Utah he was invited to train with the U.S. ski team. He became the first International Ski Federation World Champion in combined freestyle skiing and did the ski stunts for John Cusack’s character in the cult classic movie Better Off Dead. He then went on to act in other movies, appearing opposite Carrie Fisher in Amazon Women on the Moon.

CURTIS CLARK was raised the son of a farmer in the small town of Wacousta, MI. His work has grown from picking rocks to building worlds. As a lifelong comic book fan, he couldn’t be more excited for the publication of his first graphic novel. Curtis currently lives in Los Angeles where he also writes for film and television.

Finnish artist SAMI MAKONEN illustrated the graphic novels Blue (2008) and Deadworld Slaughterhouse (2009) for Desperado before signing on to visually document the travels of Hatter Madigan. A first place recipient of the 2007 Sarjis award for best fantasy comic (writer and illustrator) Sami is a graduate of the University of Tartu Estonia and has illustrated web comics for Chemistry Set and Split Lip as well as CD covers for Finnish artists Ródsogarden and Anssi Kela.
