whatever.)

Review quote

LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Once upon a time, a little girl
named Gertrude made a wish to visit Fairyland, a fantasy kingdom filled with
magic and the promise of endless adventure. Queen Cloudia, ruler of Fairyland,
granted Gertrude's wish and charged her with a quest to retrieve a key that
would allow her to return home. Twenty-seven years later, an ageless, immortal
Gertrude has been driven mad by her ceaseless wanderings, which are less and
less a mission and more of a bloody rampage across the kingdom. Tired of seeing
her subjects disemboweled but bound by magical law against doing away with
Gertrude herself, Queen Cloudia plots to throw a series of obstacles in her way.
Collecting the first ten issues of an ongoing series, this volume opens with
Gertrude killing an anthropomorphic moon via cannon and only gets more berserk
from there. Creator Young (Rocket Raccoon) has a knack for
brutally funny dialog and presents the action in a candy-colored, supercute
style, making fountains of blood simultaneously horrifying and a little bit
charming.
Verdict Gory, endlessly
inventive, and often laugh-out-loud funny.-Tom Batten, Grafton,
VA
