This story is just like Deadpool in the sense that it's vile humor, strange characters, and violence, and violence, and violence, and- Oh, more violence. Haha! It's spectacularly illustrated and the story is so ridiculous and humorous. It pokes so much fun at the original 'children-sucked-into-another-world' fairy tales we all know and grew up with.
Again, spectacularly illustrated and well written. Has tons of re-readable value to it so it's worth the money you spend. I'm already excited for Volume 2. :)
OK. I'm not the biggest fan of comic books, but when I Hate Fairyland came into Cemetery Dance for review, I took one look at the synopsis and knew I had to check this out.
What a trip. Artist and author, Skottie Young has concocted a colorful, imaginative, raw blood fest that's reminiscent of the old Fractured Fairy Tales...on acid.
I love the artwork, it reminds me of the old Garbage Pail Kids cards I collected back in the day, only with more blood.
I Hate Fairyland follows the adventures of six-year-old Gertrude who one day wishes "she could be taken away to an amazing world filled with wonder, and magic, and laughter, and joy." Be careful what you wish for. Twenty-Seven years later, Gertrude is still trying to find her way home.
I love the way Skottie has taken everything sweet and beautiful and just turned it all upside down and inside out. With a delightfully wicked sense of humor, it's difficult not to fall in love with Gertrude, her guide, Larrigan Wentsworth, III, Queen Cloudia, and the many other demented characters in I Hate Fairyland.
Published by Image Comics, the complete five comic series will be available in the single volume, I Hate Fairyland Volume 1: Madly Ever After, on April 26th, 2016. Rated M for Mature.
For the child that's inside every horror fan screaming to be let free, don't miss I Hate Fairyland Volume 1: Madly Ever After.
Skottie Young is a New York Times Best Selling cartoonist who makes his home in Central Illinois with his wife, two sons, and two dogs that drive him crazy. (The dogs, not the humans.)
This book is psychedelically colorful, sadistically violent and absolutely not for children. Gertrude is magically transported to Fairyland after making a childish wish. There she must complete a quest to find a key that will take her home. It shouldn’t take more than a day, but 27 years later she’s still at it. And she has become bitter about the whole thing. Very bitter. Extremely bitter. Kill anything that moves bitter.
When the Queen brings another child to Fairyland in a plot to get rid of Gertrude, the consequences are not what she or Gertrude expects.
This is not your everyday comic series, and I can’t wait for more. Recommended, for those who don’t mind their fairy tales dark and twisted.
She has her trusty sidekick Larry who was sent with her when she came to fairyland. I love him and his Snark. I love him more than Gertrude!
The Queen hates Gertrude because of all the trouble she is causing and she sends all kinds of things to kill Gertrude. Nope, just nope. And let me say that ending is hilarious, I mean the luck Gertrude has, lol!
Gertrude, a sweet little girl who gets stuck in a pretty fairyland has to find a magic key to return home, guess what... she's not very good with quests and her humor is worse than grumpy cat. The cover says it all, it's gore, but it's a lot of fun. I'm sure that if I read it again today, I will find new details and more funny stuff drawn on the pages. Can't wait for volume II
Full of self aware humor, and tons of bloody violence; this beautifully pastel colored comic is sure to titillate anyone with a dark sense of humor.
