I Hate Fairyland Coloring Book
Volume One: Madly Ever After
by Skottie Young
If you’re familiar with the I Hate Fairyland comic series… Well, actually, even if you’re not familiar with the comics, but you enjoy a twisted adventure, you’ll love this gruesomely-hilarious coloring book companion.
The coloring book contains line-art from Volume One of I Hate Fairyland: Madly Ever After. Gert, the main character, is sucked through a hole in her bedroom floor, and after an Alice in Wonderland-style fall, ends up in Fairyland. On a quest to get home, Gert finds herself stuck in this strange land for thirty years. The problem? She ends up being a disgruntled adult stuck in a child’s body. Yikes, right?
Armed with a battle-axe, Gert and her companion, a fly named Larry, encounter all sorts of crazy characters ranging from Zombie Fauns to Barbarians and everything in between, and you get a taste of their manic adventure through this one-of-a-kind coloring book.
The images are single-sided and perforated, which is always a plus, and means you can use any medium to color these pictures. Though, of course, I would still always recommend sliding an extra sheet of paper in between in case of any bleed-through. If you’re looking for inspiration, and happen to also have the comic, simply take a look at the plethora of wildly bright colors the artist, himself, uses. There are thirty-one colorable pages and the book, itself, is slightly larger than the standard-sized coloring books coming in at 11.5 x 8.1.
Honestly, I can’t praise ‘I Hate Fairyland by Skottie Young’ enough. It’s easily in my top five, and something I return to often to not only color, but to simply browse the pages for entertainment. It’s one of those books I don’t like to be away from for too long and become giddy thinking about snatching it off the shelf to color or flip through. I have included a few of the pictures I’ve colored so you can see for yourself what kind of pages lurk inside this brilliant coloring book!
