Alice in Sunderland

I recently read Alice in Sunderland while I soaked in a hot bath.

Bryan Talbot is one of my favourite comic artists, and the amount of historical detail he puts into this rivals (if not exceeds) that found in Alan Moore's From Hell. I've never heard of Sunderland before but it seemed a deep and detailed study of both that location, and leading up to Lewis Carroll and his works.

It's a pretty dence and well researched book. I was in the UK a couple of years ago and saw him talk about his career and how Alice in Sunderland came to be. He's not one of my favourite comic creators but I really liked all he had to say and his philosophy on comics.

I also went to that pub he mentions in it, on his recommendation, where you go down an elevator to the pub carved into the cliff face.
