I Hate Fairyland Vol. 1
I Hate Fairyland Vol. 1 | Skottie Young
317 posts | 280 read | 230 to read
From superstar writer and artist SKOTTIE YOUNG (Rocket Raccoon, Wizard of Oz, Fortunately, The Milk), comes the first volume of an allnew series of adventure and mayhem. An Adventure Time/Alice in Wonderland-style epic that smashes its cute little face against grown-up Tank Girl/ Deadpool-esque violent madness. Follow Gert, a forty-year-old woman in a sixyear- olds body, who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for nearly thirty years. Join her and her giant battleaxe on a delightfully bloodsoaked journey to see who will survive the girl who HATES FAIRYLAND. Collects I HATE FAIRYLAND #1-5.

Clearly this isn‘t I HATE FAIRYLAND, but TWIG isn‘t in the database. This is Splat. He‘s Twig‘s companion and I love him. The art here is fantastic, the story is sucking me in, and I can‘t wait to read more. I broke my book buying ban for the digital copy and I‘M NOT SORRY! Seriously, this is fun: good story, great art, wonderful vivid colors, and easy to follow panels and speech bubbles. Reading it made my day. 🤩

TracyReadsBooks Twig is THE BEST! Love it. There are something like 60 variant covers for this first issue and it‘s so fun to see everyone‘s take on the story/characters. 6mo
DGRachel @TracyReadsBooks Twig, the character, is adorable, but I don‘t have a good read on his personality yet. Splat, on the other hand, is delightfully naughty, and I‘m a sucker for a snarky sidekick! 6mo
TracyReadsBooks @DGRachel Definitely a sucker for a snarky sidekick! 6mo

Hey Skottie fans, I feel that I need to share the last page of Twig with you…

Sorry the picture is so bad…

If you don‘t want to wait until the fall, Skottie has a fabulous group of writers/artists publishing short IHF stories in his newsletter (http://skottieyoung.substack.com). He‘s also just finished Part Four of a five part story about how it is that Gert is going to make her return. I highly recommended checking them out if you‘re a fan!

I'm joining @Andrew65 and sharing some of my favorite series.

Day 1 : I Hate Fairyland (completed)

Cute, six-year old Gert finds a portal to Fairyland and can't get out. Thirty years later she's still cute, but super violent and totally over this Fairyland nonsense. This 20 comic series is colorful, violent, and funny.

1. Tagged comic is definitely a go-to read. Comics in general are a favorite. Also anything by Neil Gaiman, Pierce Brown‘s Red Rising books, Rainbow Rowell‘s books...

2. For movies, I like Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Harry Potter—immersive worlds to disappear into—also anything Pixar

3. Favorite podcast is definitely Our Opinions are Correct

4. Besides reading...making garden collages & going for long walks

@wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Neil Gaiman & Pixar. 👍🏻 Do we need anything else? 😂 Thanks for playing! 😀 3y

I didn‘t hate it, I just didn‘t really like it either. I can see how people would have a lot of fun with this series, I just think it isn‘t my sense of humor. I‘m going to pass it along without reading volume 2. @LibrarianRyan @aCleverDuck @rachelm I‘m hoping to make it to the post office this afternoon but if not today, definitely Thursday. #lmpbc

aCleverDuck I still haven‘t gotten anything yet🤷🏾‍♀️ Forgot who was supposed to sent to me. I got so busy I totally forgot. 3y
Johanna414 @LibrarianRyan sent to me, I sent to @rachelm so she must have sent to you... she had a post about sending your book awhile back - I hope it didn‘t get lost in the mail! @aCleverDuck (edited) 3y
rachelm @aCleverDuck I sent something about 10 weeks ago! I sent it early because I had finished it early. I just sent the second book today! I hope the address that was on the exchange was correct. Let me know if you don‘t get it by Saturday or Sunday 3y

LibrarianRyan Everyone has their own tastes. I get it. I won't lie, I liked book 2 better. Book one was very repetitive. 3y
Johanna414 @LibrarianRyan did you ever send me this month‘s book? I don‘t remember which one I‘m supposed to be getting... 3y
LibrarianRyan @Johanna414 yes I did. I sent it book rate but you should have it. I‘ll check my receipt. 3y

This was not what I expected when I finished the first volume.
But this is what I got… A whole lot of exactly what happened in the previous volume.
Gert‘s still the manic she was, she‘s still trying to go home and she is still failing.
Not sure if I want to continue with the rest.

Addison_Reads That's how I felt too about this one. 3y
Enchanted_Bibliophile @Addison_Reads did you continue with the rest ? 3y
Addison_Reads I haven't yet. I plan on trying the next one, but if it's again just a repeat of the same story I'll bail. It's a shame too because I really enjoyed the first one. 3y

Enchanted_Bibliophile I'll keep an eye out for your review then 3y
LibrarianRyan I have read all of “Book 1“ which has chapters 1-10. I do like how this plays out after Gertrude becomes queen. I will say to read all 10 chapters at once was not as enjoyable as when it is broken down into 3 books. But I liked what happens next (even thought it is a bit more of the same.) I just started “Book 2“ and I still like how the story is developing, but I am glad I took a bit of a break. 3y
Enchanted_Bibliophile @LibrarianRyan I'll most definitely be on the look out for your review. Might be that I also got an overdose of Gert... 3y
LibrarianRyan @Enchanted_Bibliophile I have “book 1“ review written, just not posted yet. I am going to try to do that today. if not it will be Monday. 3y

This was bloody and brutal and so many things I can't even think how to say. But it made me smile and that was all I was looking for.
The story felt a bit rushed at points and the characters are just plain crazy. THE ART is wat made me get the second volume. Well that and the ending; can't wait to see how Gert will destroy Fairyland next...

Ahhh I can't get enough of this series! This time around murdering Gertrude wants to be nice and good. However, all her good intentions are not turning out so well. She has one last chance to do good and return home. But will she? Oh I was soooo excited to see the return of Duncan the Dragon!!! Awesome story and will be continuing on to the next one! 4 stars

⭐️⭐️ This feels like a severely whacked out Alice in Wonderland. I can‘t say I‘m a fan of this story, but I appreciate the artwork. The colors are vibrant and beautiful. The characters are equal parts cute and horrifying, but the gratuitous gore was too much for me. I don‘t feel compelled to continue this series.

vivastory It's by Joe Hill. I know you're not a big horror fan, but I think you might like it 4y
britt_brooke @vivastory You‘re right. 😆 I am a chicken. 😉 But I might be willing to try it - thanks! #stacked 4y

LazyDays I almost bought this for my 9 year old niece! Then i read a couple of pages and decided against it😄 It's a little over the top for me. 4y
