    Without a doubt one of the most deliciously twisted, yet unrelentingly fun, books on the shelves today, I HATE FAIRYLAND remains an abso-fluffin-lutely essential purchase. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Aubrey Douglas Jan 21, 2016

    This issue was fun. You are introduced to new characters, a few whom meet a swift and brutal end, as is customary of many that are unlucky enough to come across our main character. We see some new locations, as both Gerty and Happy make their way across the magical and sometimes brutally gross landscape to reach their goals. My only complaint is that I have to wait to read what happens next. Read Full Review

    While the basic premise is getting a bit old, this issue sets up some exciting plot-points for the future. Definitely one to watch! Read Full Review

    The art for this series was always the draw - it's fluffin' gorgeous - but now we have a story reason to keep coming back. Read Full Review

    I Hate Fairyland got my nod for one of the best books of 2015, and if it keeps up its pace, its fun and its humor — which, again, I thought would wear out, but comes back in a big breath of fresh air this time — it will continue to be a highlight of 2016. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a really great series. I do wish there was more character development, but I’m assuming that’s coming later. As of right now, I’m really excited to see what Lord Darketh Deaddeath’s dungeon has in store for Gertrude. If you are too, keep up with the series to find out! Read Full Review

    This issue is fabulous! The art and story are so great, as the reader I can feel the anger and irritation that Queen Cloudia has for Gert. And as for Gertrude she seems almost tired of killing everything and yet still take great joy and pride in doing so. I love how this story has different fables and fairy tale people who are just generic but I love more that the covers show hilarious and yet disturbing images of what Gert does to the fables and characters we all know and love (issue 4 is Gert showing disembodied feet to a fearful prince with a glass slipper).

    More of the epic cartoon fun that I've come to expect from this series. I especially love how Darketh Deaddeath goes overboard on his skull décor.

    This series has been good up to this point, and the art is really REALLY great, but the story in this issue just felt a bit slower than it needed to be. I was hoping for something more than just a “gotcha” moment to explain Gert’s situation, but I understand that it needed to happen, and the “why” of it is less important that the fact that it happens. I loved the way the mirror realm looked in this issue, and the way that Skottie substitutes Gerts profanity for cute less-offensive words is a great thread to this story’s humor. I have a lot of hope for this story to bounce back from this issue, and for things to go back to the coco-banana bonkers stuff that I had come to expect Darketh Deaddeath’s dungeon to be EXACTLY how this story goes into crazytown. This issue even had a couple really impressive pinup images in the back, which were by two artists I really like, who have VERY different styles, so it was interesting to see them taking on the same character- Jim Mahfood and Katie Cook each did a really awesome job with their pinups, but they are VERY different. I would like to see more of that in this book- because I am sure this is a character and world that artists are clamoring to get their hands on. This book has been a pretty fun run so far, but I am hopeful that the next issue brings this story back up to the high standard that has been set for it.
