    I Hate Fairyland is a cornucopia of candy-coated carnage.  (Alliteration is fun, kids!)  If you've ever suffered through a game of Candyland or wanted to tear the head off a Care Bear, this is the perfect comic for you.  Let me leave you with this:  Within the first three pages (previewed above), a tiny butterfly teddy bear creature rips the heart out of a monster and displays it to a cheering crowd like some demented version of Gladiator.  If that doesn't make you want to buy this comic, nothing will.  Also, we can't be friends.

    I Hate Fairyland #6 is an amazing start to the second arc, with there being plenty of humorous moments. It also shows Gertrude's rein in a energetic manner, with the final moments of the issue bound to leave readers eager for more. Read Full Review

    Basically: this comic is back and that makes me stupid happy (I'm drinking to celebrate), so you should go read this one because it's just the best. And to toast in the new arc, let us continue our own running joke of almost-perfect review scores! Read Full Review

    I HATE FAIRYLAND #6 is a bloody fun comic. It's a glimpse of Gertrude as queen, and it actually featuresa surprise tweak to the story in its final pages. Gallows humor ison full display, as Gertrude accidentally spreads carnage and death across the land. Her insanity is also at a peak.No longer can Gertrude do whatever she wants in a place she despises, so she keeps spiraling downwards and the poor anthropomorphicbottles get the full brunt of it. I HATE FAIRYLANDis easily one of my favorite comics. The dark elements mixed with comedic moments remind me a little of RICK AND MORTY and INVADER ZIM. All of these are rich in self-depreciation, outrageous chaos, and violence blended with even more ludicrous humor. If you like that stuff, thenget aboard the crazy train. All hail Queen Gert!

    This series has taken quite a few twists and turns, and it’s bound to take a lot more. Now that Gert is free, Fairyland is sure to go through a lot of mayhem. However, Gert seems really focused on getting home, so she might not do as much damage as she has previously done. Whichever it is, I’m excited to see Gert loser her way and Larry get fed up with her. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Louis Otero Jun 17, 2016

    While it may be a bit much to ask of a series that primarily relies on out-of-place gore and humor that ranges from irreverent to gross-out,I Hate Fairylanddoes have room for better, more linear story telling. You can see that Young certainly has the chops for it. This issue does little to progress the actual plot, but it is still very fun. Gertrude's antics as Queen lead to plenty of fun gags and great one-liners from the supporting cast. Likewise, the art of this book was an absolute home run. From the gore, to the cartoon characters everything jumps right off the page. It's enough to keep you engaged on its own. Although marginally disappointing, this issue still leaves the series teemingwith potential. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Jun 16, 2016

    The end of that arc promised progress, as Gertrude was forced to become Queen of Fairyland. But, all that progress is wiped away in a single issue designed to make being Queen the most boring duty Gertrude could possibly have. Skottie Young explains his intentions in the back pages, and they're all reasonable, but it makes for a very deflating return issue Read Full Review

    As always, Skottie Young's art is A++. You pick up with Gert amassing the mantle as Queen on Fairyland and all the bureaucracy and listening to complaining that comes with it, which we all know couldn't be a worse fit for Gert. The story felt a little rushed and ended a little quick. I would have liked to see this story go on for at least another issue. Then again who wants to see Gert sign papers for two or three issues (crickets). BUT glad to see that Gert is back in action. Really enjoying this comic! Just hope that the coming issues have longer arcs.

    Skottie Young continues to put out what it probably my favorite art in comics at the moment and this issue continues to produce quite a few clever and funny moments in this cynical fantasy universe. However, I am begging to become disappointed with the lack of depth or direction in this series. It seems like several issues, especially this one, give us a mile high, sweeping overview of the great idea that is IHF, but the series has yet to bear much fruit of any real substance, which is surprising for how great the premise is. After this issue, I'm not sure if Skottie has any real direction planned for this series or if it will just end up being a collection of clever ideas and jokes instead of a worthwhile story. I still like this series, but I'm dying for some more substance, tension, conflict, etc. that keeps me craving more.

    Admittedly, it's a cop out, what a strange Monarchy. Skottie Young explains why he goes in the direction that he did, but I would have liked this to be the status quo for an arc, we've already seen Gertrude wondering Fairland
