I Am Alice: Body Swap in Wonderland Vol. 1 - Ayumi Kanou

I can't handle reading a novel right now, so I'm working my way through this. I'm not a fan of cross-gender body switch stories, but the art's okay and it's always interesting (in multiple senses of the word) to see Alice in Wonderland reinterpreted. Here we have Alice and Makoto pulled into Wonderland via a book and accidentally body-switched. While Alice is entertaining, I'm having trouble believing she came from our world. Also, how do all those grenades fit under her skirt?

 

"Besides, don't you find infodumps to be so tedious?"

 

I snorted at this line, because the volume began with infodumps.
