Image Comics Announces First "I Hate Fairyland" Collection; Neil Gaiman Likes It
“A candy-colored and vicious delight and always dangerously funny.” —Neil Gaiman
From the superstar New York Times bestselling cartoonist Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon, Wizard of Oz, Fortunately, The Milk), comes the first volume of an all-new series of adventure and mayhem. This collects issues #1-5 and will be available in April.
I HATE FAIRYLAND, VOLUME 1: MADLY EVER AFTER is an Adventure Time/Alice in Wonderland-style epic that smashes its cute little face against grownup Tank Girl/Deadpool-esque violent madness. Follow Gert, a forty-year-old woman in a six-year-old’s 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.
I HATE FAIRYLAND, VOLUME 1: MADLY EVER AFTER (ISBN 9781632156853) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, April 20th, 2016, and bookstores on Tuesday, April 26th, 2016, and will be available for $9.99. It can be ordered by retailers from Diamond Book Distributors with Diamond code JAN160644. It can be preordered now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indigo, and Indiebound.
Praise for I HATE FAIRYLAND:
“I Hate Fairyland is pure uncut Skottie Young awesomeness. Like a bag of Angel Dust in comic book form. Only Crazier.” —Jason Aaron
"In this business of comics, cartoonists are the purest practitioners of craft. They blend words and pictures in a way that shouldn't be possible; they make magic. Skottie Young is a master cartoonist, and this book is a masterpiece." —Jonathan Hickman
“Awesomely twisted—irreverent and inventive and crazy fun.” —Scott Snyder
“Just read the first issue of my buddy Skottie Young’s new Image Comics book I Hate Fairyland: just pure, distilled FUN from cover to cover” —Francesco Francavilla
“I Hate Fairyland is diabolically engaging and sick and twisted and lovely in that in every single way possible.” —Blastr
“I Hate Fairyland is like Candyland seen through the prism of John Kricfalusi. It's filled with the dark humor that we've come to love and expect from the likes of Lenore and Invader Zim. It takes the tropes from classic children's tales and kicks them right in the balls before ripping their hearts right out.” —Horror Talk
“I Hate Fairyland is sculpted out of Skottie Young’s rainbow-colored brain meat and then hammer-smashed into the pages of a comic book.” —Dennis Hopeless
