    Simply put, I HATE FAIRYLAND is a hugely enjoyable romp through an acid coloured, bat shit crazy land of cute animals, rainbows, unicorns and a homicidal 30 year old trapped in a little girls body. What's not to like? Buy it. BUY IT NOW. Read Full Review

    This issue was advertised as the conclusion for the series, but luckily, this is only the beginning! Skottie Young said that the issue was originally penned as a 48-page one-shot, but it took on a life of its own and will continue for many issues to come. I can't wait. This is one of the best comics I've ever read. Plus, the concept is like nothing I've ever seen before. Get out there and read this brilliant piece of work, you dirty Mother Fluffer!

    Outright Geekery - Aubrey Douglas Feb 19, 2016

    If I had to pick a favorite issue out of this book, I would say that this one would be on my short list of choices. Everything in the last four issues has been building up to this. I Have enjoyed every single page of this issue has been one that I have gone back and read again. I could not help but take things in for a second time, and enjoy the writing and artwork again. The emotions on the characters faces, the rainbows, unicorns, dragons. flowers, and fire and destruction were all things that I enjoyed. Along with the death and mayhem it all added up to some of the cutest panic and violence that I have witnessed in a while. This is a fitting end to a chaotic and fun storyline. My guess is that the next chapter in this story will be just as surprising and enjoyable. Read Full Review

    While the story is wonderful, I dont want to give away too much of the plot, especially with this being the end of the first story arc. The trade is already being planned to be released and if you havent given the book a shot yet, do it, it will read phenomenally in trade, and part of that is due to the events that take place in this finale issue.

    Because these characters are deep, and not allowing them to breathe would be doing them a disservice. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Feb 18, 2016

    The way Skottie Young has transformed this book from a series of hilarious, but ultimately similar, jokes into an actual storyline is pretty amazing. Suddenly this book has some real forward momentum to go with that incredibly beautiful art of his. There's no telling what this book can accomplish next. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Feb 19, 2016

    I Hate Fairyland is that rare thing these days: a "cute" comic that doesn't pull punches and is actually able to elicit some very real laughs. Missing it is not an option. Read Full Review

    By the look of Gertrude’s face on the last page of this issue, I’m certain she is very pissed off. The question is: what is she going to do about it? I’m looking forward to finding out. Be sure to keep up with the series and see what happens to Fairyland with Gertrude in charge! Read Full Review

    This book has been great fun, with lots of misdirection, and plenty of questions left unanswered. This issue ends on a great big ol’ cliffhanger, and I cannot wait to see where things go from here. I am sure that the story is FAR from over, and that there are plenty of characters in this book we have not seen the last of (and probably at least ONE we have…) the art on this book is stellar, and if it wasn’t for all the fake swearing and intense violence, I would love to read this book to my son. But it is totally NOT for kids, just for emotionally stunted man children like myself. It really has been tons of fun to read, and the collected edition of this first arc is coming out shortly, with a blurb on the cover from one Neil Gaiman. So if my recommendation means nothing (which, to be honest, it really doesn’t) then take the word of the mane who created the world of the Dreaming, who breathed life into the Eternals, and who is everything wondrous about skinny, pale, soft-spoken Brits, and check this book out!
