BOOM! Studios extend a “Welcome to Wanderland” with a first look at the new series
Imagine you’re at a theme park. Let’s say Disney World, for these purposes. Like any good theme park, simply stepping foot onto the property makes it feel like you’re transported to another world. Disney World does this in spades already, so it’s not much of a stretch.
Now imagine you go to Disney World and you’re literally sent to a world populated by the characters in your favorite films. Cinderella’s castle? Totally legit. Flying Dumbos? You’d best believe those adorable elephants will be living and breathing. Those Pandora rides? Get... a giant blue body so you can survive in the atmosphere or something. I don’t know, it’s been a while since I’ve seen that one.
As amazing as it would be at first, actually visiting those places might get old after a while.
Thats the idea behind Welcome to Wanderland, a new series from BOOM! Studios. Check out the preview of the first issue below, where our hapless heroine Bellamy discovers that the magic and whimsy of her favorite characters aren’t as genuine as she thought.

Some Fairy Tales Aren’t Exactly A Dream Come True in September 2018
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 10, 2018) – BOOM! Studios unveiled today a first look at WELCOME TO WANDERLAND #1, beginning a new four issue limited series in September from writer Jackie Ball (Goldie Vance) and artist Maddi Gonzalez (Elements) where the most magical place on Earth might actually be a nightmare.
Bellamy Muñoz knows everything there is to know about Wanderland Park. She knows when all the most iconic rides were built, all the shortcuts around the park, and all the secret lore behind Old West Town, Space Age Metropolis, and New Princesston. So when she winds up in the REAL version of Wanderland, with real princesses and adorable talking woodland creatures, Bellamy is sure that she has GOT this...that is, until it starts to become clear that this magical land isn’t much like the real world park at all, and the characters she thinks she knows aren’t at all like she’d imagined.
“WELCOME TO WANDERLAND is a hilarious, creative look at what happens when you allow the art that you love to inform your growth, instead of stifle it,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Jackie and Maddi have created a lush world steeped in humor and theme park geekery together and I’m so excited to share it with readers.”
Welcome to Wanderland #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on September 12.
