ZEN OF WONDER – Synopsis


ZEN OF WONDER – Synopsis

For those of you who are curious about Hatter Madigan’s adventure in ZEN OF WONDER, here is the synopsis:

“You LOST Princess Alyss of Wonderland? NOT a problem!  An ADVENTURE!”   – Nekko

Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan’s search takes an unexpected detour in the Zen of Wonder when he travels ‘within’ guided by a mischievous and often maddening young girl named Nekko. Nekko’s origin is a Zen mystery, but her devotion to Hatter’s quest to find the lost Princess is unwavering.  After Nekko kidnaps his Hat and leads him on a fearless chase across the rooftops of 1871 San Francisco, Hatter must acknowledge her as a teacher. It is written that when you are ready the teacher will appear, but if the teacher is a 12-year-old girl and you are a High Ranking Bladesman you may discover that all you can do is laugh.


Hatter and Nekko’s adventure around the ring of fire begins when they track a stolen samurai sword with a Wonderland connection to San Francisco’s styling 19th century hiphop crime madam Missy Tong and her eager protégé, the outspoken Lil’ Dick. A stowaway trip aboard a shanghai sailing ship ends on the Hawaiian Islands where a surfboard becomes Hatter’s vehicle to illumination.  And then on to Japan! Good grief it’s Chikao and the gang, schoolhouse demons, cosplay, manga, noodles and a long lost brother from another world. Duality?  No. Milliners.
