    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

    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

    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).

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Jan 20, 2016

    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
