From superstar writer and artist Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon, Wizard of OZ, Fortunately, The Milk), comes the first volume of an all-new series of adventure and mayhem.

An Adventure Time/Alice in Wonderland-style epic that smashes it's cute little face against grown-up, Tank Girl/Deadpool-esque violent madness. Follow Gert, a forty year old woman stuck in a six year olds body who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for nearly thirty years. Join her and her giant battle-axe on a delightfully blood soaked journey to see who will survive the girl who HATES FAIRYLAND.

Collecting Issues #1-5 for only $9.99. "Skottie Young is an Eisner Award-Winning, New York Times Bestselling cartoonist who has been making comics and children's books for over fifteen years.

MEDIA REVIEWS
BOOK RIOT -- This is one of my favorite comics. It's hilarious. I laugh obnoxiously while reading it. You must have an immature sense of humor to enjoy it.
Gertrude, or Gert, gets sucked through a hole in her bedroom floor that transports her into Fairyland. Think: Alice falling into Wonderland, only this Alice has a really bad attitude and a penchant for murder. Gert gets dumped into Fairyland against her will, and then gets stuck there for 40 years. Despite the years that pass, Gert stays in the same child body, and never grows to like Fairyland. Actually, Gert HATES Fairyland. Like, she carries around a battle axe and murders anything that gets in her way. Oh, and she has a dirty mouth, but instead of the actual profanities, Fairyland morphs her curses to words like "fluff" and "gob-ding'd." It's so hilarious.

“Crazy and colourful humorous comic collection”



Not really my type of comic at all, this tells of a young girl who gets taken to Fairyland and spends the next twenty-seven years trying to find her way home. She is vicious, uncouth and frustrated. Much violence... More

“An excessively violent and enjoyably riduculous adventure.”

Skottie Young has created a gleefully irreverent story that blends cute cartoonish characters with psychotic ultra-violence to great effect. It is dark, funny, creative and completely unpredictable. Beaulieu's... More

“A new favorite!”

Absolutely fantastic, great story and beautiful bright bubblegum coloured illustrations.
Some bad language and violent images mean that this is definitely not for young readers. Over 18.
