Password? "Pizza." The Stakes Are Raised In I Hate Fairyland #3


I brought a stack of comics home with me today, but I Hate Fairyland was the first one I grabbed. Sometimes, after a long day, it's nice to know that you can come home to a comic that guarantees a bit of laughter. In I Hate Fairyland's case, that means a lot of laughter. From Image Comics, written and illustrated by Skottie Young, this comic continues to impress me.


When we last left Gertrude, the odds seemed stacked against her. I mean, who can handle an entire army of Zombie Faun alone? Turns out, Gertrude can. Don't worry though, that isn't a big spoiler. It happens on the first page. As a result, Queen Cloudia is enraged and decides to take things into her own hands. She journeys to the Council of Elders and proposes that a new child be brought to Fairyland to replace Gertrude. That way, she's no longer untouchable. What happens next can only be described as a wild ride!

I'd like to live in Skottie Young's brain for a day and see how he comes up with all of these brilliant, quirky, sarcastic, imaginative landscapes and characters. I Hate Fairyland, is pure bloody fun. I mean that, there's a lot of blood. Young's writing and illustrations are magnetizing. There were a good three pages that included so much detail and character evolution that I could probably stare at them for days. I just kept laughing and laughing at the slight changes to Gertrude's character and the way her sidekick responded to it all. I can't get enough of this comic, and if you read it, I guarantee you'll feel the same way. Be sure to pick up I Hate Fairyland #3 today!
