Book description:
Gert finally realizes that being such a murderous maniac might be the reason she’s not been able to find her way out of the candy-coated world of Fairyland that has been her nightmare for over forty years. She sets off on a new quest to redeem herself and tries to earn her way back home with good deeds and kindness and love an whatever other mushy, touchy-feely things she can manage.

The epic and hilarious fantasy quest continues from fan favorite cartoonist SKOTTIE YOUNG

Collecting issues 11 through 15.


This volume felt a little less episodic than the previous one, but still seemed to jump from one scenario to the faster and faster to get to the end of the story arc. However, SPOILER ALERT after having a revelation that being her usual murderous self may not actually be working in her favor, Gert changes her ways and finally finds her key, and all looks like it is finally working in Gert's favor, but of course this is Skottie Young and he can't let Gert off that easily. The twist at the end was spot on perfect for this series, and I can't wait to see how this next story arc plays out.

Full of Young's typical dark humor and wildly outrageous art, and Nate Piekos continues to explode retinas with his eyeball-popping colors, I Hate Fairyland continues to be one of my favorite series coming out of Image these days.
