I have much appreciation for this mighty graphic novel as it was obviously a labor of love. It's packed with information galore about the UK, the north east of England, Sunderland, Alice Liddel, Lewis Carrol, many many other 'Mackems' and the writer himself Bryan Talbot. As you can imagine the volume of information must have been difficult to put together in a coherent manner and while I think it was done admirably this graphic novel made my head hurt.

[PS: if you're a parent and want to tempt your offspring into thinking, especially creatively, you could do worse than having this book lie about the livingroom.]
