In an adventure that ain’t for the little kiddies, (unless you have super cool parents, then whatever), you’ll meet Gert—a six year old girl who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for thirty years and will hack and slash her way through anything to find her way back home. Join Gert and her giant battle-axe on a delightfully blood soaked journey to see who will survive the girl who HATES FAIRYLAND.
Hype Hype and some more Hype later I finally grabbed myself e-copies of I hate fairyland 1,2 and 3. Because these were the cheapest first three and I wanted to get myself acquainted with the style before I made a proper investment in the physical copies (which are, by the way, still not available in India).
I Hate Fairyland by Skottie Young and Jean-François Beaulieu is about a little green haired girl called Gertrude who wishes that she could live in fairyland. her wish comes true and somehow, she’s stuck there. Her mind ages over the 27 years that she’s stuck but her body remains. So what we are left with is this murderous, crass, frustrated 27 yr old in a kid’s body. It’s quite bizarre really.
The art is absolutely brilliant, colourful and gory but not in a yucky Tokyo Ghoul kind of way, in a more…..fluffy way. I can’t believe I actually said that. If you have a problem you can go fluff yourself. NO. I didn’t mean that! COME BACK!
