Gertrude's still stuck in Fairyland and trying to get the fluff back home, but her quest hits a bit of a roadblock when she winds up being crowned Queen! All hail Gertrude, the new Queen of Fairyland. Join Gert as she rules the world she hates, meets a new friend named Duncan Dragon, gets her face smashed in by a beautiful princess, and makes a choice that may very well lead to the last days of Fairyland.

There’s a minor spoiler early on in the review, if you care about that sort of thing. Non-spoiler review? It was a’ight.

Ok, onto the not very spoilery review!

What up, boppy-tops? Time to revisit Fairyland and see what Queen Gertie’s been up to since she took over! Nothing good is the long and short of it, but you probably guessed that already - Gertie’s a horrible queen and she’s turned Fairyland into a living hell!

And here’s the mild spoiler: Skottie Young wrote himself into a corner with th


Volume 2 has more ultra violence, dark comedy, drippy colors, and wacky fantasy world building. While it doesn't feel as revolutionary now that I'm acquainted, Fairyland it still a FLUFF of a fun read and spectacularly illustrated.

So Gertrude's queendom deflates rather quickly. I mean, damn. But fortunately the plot moves at a brisk pace and we're introduced to Duncan, a kid in a dragon costume who gets sucked into Fairyland. Then they both get sucked into a Street Fighter-styl

Whilst this was an enjoyable read overall, it lacked the hilarity and puns of the first volume. This second volume was a lot more bloody and I think it was just for gore's sake.

I would say issues 6-8 were great fun, I loved the plot, the pace, the cool illustrations of them entering video game world, Duncan the Dragon (he was pretty cute), but the final two issues were...well really not that interesting or fun. The ending was pretty anticlimactic too and I feel this is going to be a se

This one was by far not as crazy, colorful and exciting as the first volume in the series. I found most of the events actually rather boring. The art is good of course, there are still some beautifully illustrated pages in this graphic novel and I still like the whole landscape of Fairyland but overall there was not enough to keep me addicted, even Gertrudes character was not as entertaining to me as in the first volume. I think that "Madly Ever After" was a very enjoyable read and worked well a ...more
I still love the dark humor in this comic and how "fluffed" up everything is! Love it!

Well ... this was ... a let-down to be honest.
After loving volume one A LOT, what with all the clever puns and twists on the usual Fairyland stuff that turned everyting into a gory bloodbath, I had high hopes for this. Other than a few side-stabs at Game of Thrones however ("Winter is coming!"), this was nowhere near as funny as volume one.

As readers of the first volume know, Gertrude killed Cloudia and therefore is now

Well, actually she would like to be as pictured above but still looks like th

I loved Volume 1 and started volume 2 with highest expectations, maybe that's why it felt a bit like it stayed below my hopes.
But there was still a lot of great stuff. I am tempted to mention a few bits but don't wanna spoil it for the others.
It is just an outstanding series and I can'twait for the third volume to come out.

Menos coeso que o primeiro volume, o segundo continua a cruzada de Gertrude no reino mágico encantado, mas agora como Rainha. Se ela pensava que este papel lhe poderia trazer algumas alegrias (sob a forma de chacinas, guerrilhas e outras coisas que tais) não contava que a nova posição fosse desempenhada a partir do trono real, a assinar papelada sem fim.

Echoing what all of the other reviews have said so far, the second volume of Skottie Young's acid-trip through fairy tales is great, but not as great as the first volume.

The status quo set up in the first volume's ending is quickly discarded (although I don't think there was much mileage to get from it in first place, to be fair), in favour of a more disjointed approach to things. Rather than one overarching plot, this one's more done-in-one stories as Gert tries to find new ways of getting home
David Edmonds

Picking up directly where the first volume leaves off, this volume of I Hate Fairyland, with Gert now Queen of Fairyland, and that goes about as well as you'd expect. She is eventually ousted from the throne and continues her search for a way home, dragging the unfortunate Larry along the way.

While Scottie Young's writing is still funny and his art is as madcap as ever (and Jean-Francois Beaulieu's eye-popping colors are eye-popping!), this volume was far more episodic than the previous story ar

Skottie Young zeigt, dass er all die süßen Elemente der Portal-Fantasy der letzten Jahrzehnte (wenn nicht gar mehr) nehmen kann und völlig neu interpretieren kann. Wie in Band 1 prallen hier Cute & Terror zusammen, perfekt und prickelnd erzählt.

Im Gegensatz zu Band 1 ist hier nur kein durchgehender roter Faden erkennbar, also keine Rahmenhandlung welches diese Ausgaben zusammenhält. Irgendwie schade, denn mit der Situation, dass Gertie die Königin wird hätte man vielleicht mehr als ein paar

I really like that this volume throws the brakes on any kind of story development at all, completely rolls back the new status quo established in the first volume, and is then just a bunch of jokes about pee and an endless string of muffin fluffing Fairyland cuss words. This book is all manic fun, and while it'll be good to get some more character beats and story later on, it's just a lot of fun traveling with Gert as she continues to be a terrible person in what should be a magical place.

Genial la continuación de este estupendo tebeo. Me decepciono un poco que finalmente Gert no durara mucho como Reina de Fairyland, pero la verdad es que ver como la lía en cada numero bien merece la pena. Si que tengo la sensación de que el ritmo de sus aventuras ha disminuido y están pasando menos cosas que en los primeros números, pero la manera en que Young desmonta y juega con los tópicos de las historias de fantasía es estupendo. Que siga, que siga...

Gertrude is Queen! Who is going crazy with boredom since Queens don't do any of their own dirty work. So when she gets fired, her violent and bloody quest to return home can go on. Volume 2 continues directly on from Volume 1. I enjoyed it just as much, but feel that the concept only has so much runway left before it becomes stale. I hope Young closes it out with a bang, rather than letting it linger. Recommended to fans of the first book.

3.5 stars.

Sometimes I hate to be right. I said that rest of the series is unlikely to be as good as volume 1 and sadly it turned out to be true.

Volume 2 is in no way bad, I still had laughs and giggles reading it but it's nowhere near hilarious as volume 1 which remains one of my favorite comics.

Gert and Larry are still stuck in Fairyland since Gert became Queen Gertrude. She lost that job after a year due to incompetence. Now Gert and Larry are hunting for a way out. On the way they met Duncan the Dragon and then lost him in a card game. That and other issues such as choosing the wrong way in the maze will end Fairyland forever! Or will it? Stay tuned for the next volume!

I Hate Fairyland Volume 2 isn't quite as good as the first volume, but it's hard to beat perfection so I forgive it. The story is choppier, but there are still delightful puns, technocolour violence, and dark humour abound. I Hate Fairyland is an indulgence with fantastic art and a completely obnoxious, but delightful story line.

Oh my fluffin god! This was amazing, not as good as the first one but only by a smidgen. It was still one of the best things I have ever read. I just love Gert sooo much and how ridiculously stupid she is but she's so kickass you just have to forgive her for it.
I never want this story to end, I can't wait for the next one.
As ever, a bloody, entertaining adventure. There was one page transition (while in the hat) that had me wondering if I'd stuck two pages together but otherwise, enjoyable. I'm not sure where this series is going but I'll probably be sticking around. I might just do a re-read before going forward with the next volume.

Still quirky and fun.
The story has gotten choppy and disconnected, I don't feel very driven to continue with the next volume. It is unlike anything I have ever read ....

My brother suggested this series to me and I love it!

The graphic detail is great and the story is absolutely hilarious!

This story continues with Gertrude as the Queen of Fairyland and how much she hates it there and all she wants is to find another way home!

Whil still entertaining and enjoyable, this volume didn't quite live up to the first volume. This was more of a course-correction arc, though I confess I love the introduction of Duncan the Dragon-boy.

I'm sticking with this series for the forseeable future, warts and all.
