I Hate Fairyland is a hilarious and gory romp through the eponymous Fairyland by a thirty-seven-year-old little girl who has been trapped there since she was ten due to her lack of questing ability. In twenty-seven years, Gertrude has developed into the most foul-mouthed and dangerous denizen in all of Fairyland, doing basically whatever she wants including getting high, drunk, and murdering the crap out of anyone too annoying. Volume one is the cutest gore-fest I’ve ever seen.

“Whatever, I do what I want!”
That phrase has never described anything more accurately. Skottie Young just sat down and decided, “You know what? Screw it”! There’s blood and guts all over the place, hell we get showered in the (new) narrator’s guts at the beginning of every issue! We’ve got a thirty-seven-year-old woman in the body of a ten-year-old trying to seduce a frog-man. Alcohol, drugs, and all other kinds of debauchery you can image litter the adorable landscapes of this child-dreamland.
Of course, this freedom doesn’t just apply to the author/creator. The heroine, Gertrude is like Skottie’s author avatar as he decides to live out his darkest fantasies about slaughtering anything and everything. Stars too bright? Blow them to pieces. Who cares if you misunderstood the riddle and ripped the hearts out of every cute giant creature in a hundred block radius. Besides, the law of the land can’t touch you! It’s the ultimate gore-filled dream of freedom.
