Wonderland Vol 2 by Yūgo Ishikawa
We're back with Yukko and Alice, where Pokko-Chan is stuck outside the gate with all the voracious cats. In this volume, we learn why the Fury Road wannabees look like that - because they WERE watching Fury Road when everyone got shrunk! We also get a bit of an understanding why everyone in this area has shrunken, and Alice was behind it all along. We are also introduced to someone Alice seems to hate - Iosef, who is unaffected by Alice's shrink powers, and can control the animals.
I continue to like the slow pace of information we are given in between the suspenseful scenes of Yukko and Alice continuing to try to survive. There are still some horrible moments where tiny people are killed by their environment or animals, but there is a feel-good moment at the end of this volume that redeems the horrors of this volume. The art is still haunting as befits this tale of death and mystery.
Seven Seas rates this for older teen. The amount of gore/blood/violence makes this rating still appropriate.
