All hail Gertrude, the new Queen of Fairyland. After thirty years of wreaking havoc across this magical world to find her way back home, she must now overcome her biggest challenge yet... ruling the place she hates most. Join Gert as she continues her never-ending quest to get the FLUFF out of Fairyland. The hilariously brutal Fairytale adventure continues by superstar cartoonist SKOTTIE YOUNG.
Collects issues 6-10.
I HATE FAIRYLAND VOLUME 2: FLUFF MY LIFE, takes place one year after Gert accidentally makes herself the Queen of Fairyland. This has not made her life any easier; she wants to get the hell out, but the Queen is not allowed to leave.
I was a bit disappointed with how easy it was for Gert to get out of being Queen, but the introduction of a fresh batch of children from the real world was tons of fun. Gertrude is in her 30s, but looks the same as these children. They do not get along, and Gert, ever the anti-hero, only wants to piggyback back to the real world where she can swear for real. Saying fluff all the time gets old.
The art and the pacing are still excellent. The gore is both surprisingly awesome and plentiful. I HATE FAIRYLAND is one of the most violent graphic novels starring children under ten I’ve ever read, and that’s a good thing.Series Titles:
