I Hate Fairyland
Reader Advisory: Adult themes, Adult Situations, Violence, More Violence, My God, The Violence I Hate Fairyland, Skottie Young 's first creator owned series is equal parts Syrupy saccharine Wizard of Oz knockoff, Happy Tree Friends, and Tank Girl. Gertrude, better known as Gert, made the mistake of wishing to go to Fairyland as a child. Under normal circumstances, this would not be a big deal, as visitors to Fairyland partake in a quest to find the key to get back to their own world, and it takes approximately 1 day. Gert, however, went in when she was 6, and now, she's pushing 40. The kicker is that she doesn't look a day older than when she went in. Now, close to 40 years later, one would have two choices. 1) Chose to acclimate to the new world, make the best of a bad situation, and get on with your life. Or, you could 2) go a bit around the bend, and develop a blood-lust that rivals that of Conan, in an effort to find the key and get back to her home. Naturally, this wanton slaughter of Fairyland inhabitants is going to make people not like Gertrude, especially Queen Cloudia, supreme ruler of Fairyland. No longer content with watching Gert try to find a way home, Cloudia wants Gert gone, and she really doesn't care how. Be it through the mythical door, or through a floor drain. Will Gert survive Cloudia's wrath? Will Fairyland survive Gert's murderous road trip? Will Skottie Young ever tire of juxtaposing cute, adorable kids with wanton, gratuitous violence? Only one way to find out!
