Image announces a trio of Second Printings

Image Comics has announced that three bestelling series will be fast-tracked for reprints in order to keep up with escalating customer demand—Skottie Young and Brett Bean’s I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s The Bone Orchard Mythos: Ten Thousand Black Feathers #2, and Wes Craig’s Kaya #2. All three reprints will land on shelves this December.

In Skottie Young and Brett Bean’s I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, everyone’s favorite green-haired axe-wielding crazed maniac returns in this Deadpool meets Alice In Wonderland-style adventure! Gert is all grown up and living in the real world. Times are tough and the only job she’s qualified for has her trying to find her way back to the place she hates the most…Fairyland.

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino expand their shared horror universe of titles, The Bone Orchard Mythos, with Ten Thousand Black Feathers. In issue #2, Trish and Jackie are pulled deeper into the fantasy world they’ve created. But the terrors of the real world are difficult to separate and their teenage daydreams are proving to be equally dangerous.

In Wes Craig’s Kaya #2, Kaya has formed an uneasy alliance with the Lizard-Riders. But will a flash flood and a dangerous hunt for food with the treacherous Zothan push Kaya past her breaking point?

I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229024), The Bone Orchard Mythos: Ten Thousand Black Feathers #2, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229025), and Kaya #2, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229026) will all be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, December 21.

Eisner Award-winning writer SKOTTIE YOUNG (MIDDLEWEST, TWIG, THE ME YOU LOVE IN THE DARK) and artist BRETT BEAN (Marvel’s Rocket & Groot) bring back the hit comic I HATE FAIRYLAND for an all-new ONGOING SERIES!

Everyone’s favorite green-haired, axecrazed maniac returns in this Deadpool meets Alice In Wonderlandadventure! Gert is all grown up and living in the real world. Times are tough, and the only job she’s qualified for has her trying to find her way back to the place she hates the most…Fairyland.

Review: I Hate Fairyland #1

I Hate Fairyland #1

Gert is all grown up and living in the real world. Times are tough, and the only job she’s qualified for has her trying to find her way back to the place she hates the most… Fairyland. I Hate Fairyland #1 kicks off a brand-new volume that continues Gert’s adventures for long-time fans and new readers. It’s the over the top kinetic ultra violence you’d expect.

Skottie Young is back to tell Gert’s tale. The comic opens catching new readers up but quickly dives into her current life. And it sucks. Gert can’t keep a job, she has no skills, and she’s drinking a lot. Fairyland looks pretty good at this point.

And Young does an impressive thing, he makes Gert somewhat sympathetic. At a point, you feel bad that she had her life stripped away from her and then dumbed back in the real world expected to function. You feel bad she can’t keep a job. There’s a bit of a mircocosm of the frustration so many are feeling in the world right now all represented by Gert’s struggles.

So, what is Gert to do? She’s presented a mission by the end, one she’s rather suited for.

The art by Brett Bean is fantastic. It continues the kinetic over-the-top nature of the original series. The violence is cartoonish levels, the visual presentation is the punchline to so much of Young’s insanity. Bean is joined by Jean-Francois Beaulieu on color and Nate Piekos on lettering and it all comes together for hilarity. This is Looney Tunes for adults, it’s just missing the Acme products. And what’s great is none of it is dialed back in the real world. Gert gets the crap beat out of her and it’s to ludicrous levels, and we roll with it. It’s just silly violent fun.

I Hate Fairyland #1 is exactly what you’d expect going into it. It’s just insane violence with a slight offensive nature about it all. It does a solid job of setting up what’s to come while catching up new readers. It’s cathartic violent fun wrapped up in a cute beat up package that’ll give you the finger.
