I happened across the first three books of "Return to Wonderland" a few months ago looking for a torrent with the new Stephen King "Gunslinger Born" comic books.  The torrent I found was a multipack so I checked some other titles in it that looked interesting.

"Return to Wonderland" is a twisted sort-of retelling of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that apparently ran for six issues.  The torrent I found only had the first two but I got the rest last night, as well as the first twentyfive or so issues of Grimm Fairy Tales (all published by Zenescope, a company I'd never heard of.)

Anyway, these books with their retellings of tales such as "Little Red Riding Hood", "The Three Little Pigs", "Hansel & Gretel" and the like are definitely in the horror genre.  For some reason, they also seem to all feature some busty and scantily-clad babe.  But I'm enjoying "Return to Wonderland" and wondered if any horror-fans here are familiar with the Grimm series.  I'll probably end up getting RtW in the trade paperback if it exists yet, and maybe some of the others too.
