Madly Ever After

Madly Ever After is by Skottie Young. The first volume in the I Hate Fairyland graphic novel series. Gertrude was a six year old girl who was sucked into Fairyland for a magical adventure that should have lasted a day or two. It's been nearly thirty years however, and Gert is still trying to get out. She is a middle aged woman in the body of a six-year-old. This experience has had some unfortunate side effects for Gert - she's psychotic. She is literally cutting a swath through Fairyland, so much so that Queen Cloudia wants Gert disposed of, but that's not going to be all that easy. A hilariously violent take on fairytales for older readers, definitely not a series to hand younger consumers. I will admit, I loved it, but I have a sick sense of humor.

Ratings: 9th grade - 9 out of 10 - V (Violence) - AC (some mature content).
