Manga! Manga!

The popularity of manga—graphic novels, comics, and cartoons from Japan—is undeniable, and it should come as no surprise that there have been several adaptations of Wonderland and Looking-Glass and many dozens of series that allude to the Alice characters. Close to one hundred of them are listed here!

(Spoiler alert: Shinichi Kinoshita of the LCSJapan and Dr. Amanda Kennell are working on a substantive article about Alice manga that will appear in a forthcoming Knight Letter.)

In 2019, the British Museum in London hosted “Manga マンガ,” the biggest exhibition on manga outside of Japan to date. Its excellent catalog features our W. Rabbit on its back cover, and the first eight pages of Chapter 1 are devoted to Wonderland adaptations.
