Review by Booklist Reviews

Sucked into a magical world where anything is possible, a young girl must go on an enchanted quest to find a magic key that can send her home. That was 27 years ago, and Gertrude is still stuck in Fairyland. Though she hasn't aged physically, she's gone loopy from eating nothing but sugar and interacting with talking bunnies. Jaded and deranged, she's now more interested in getting drunk and swinging a battle axe than going on magical quests. Though the story is pretty one-note, focused on slaughtering as many magical beings as possible, and Gert's constant swearing and crazed demeanor can become grating, comics fans looking for gore and absurd, dark humor will follow her to hell and back. Young's fantastic art style is hugely appealing. His character design is very imaginative, with exaggerated figures and stylized shapes, and it's a perfect mix of cute and fluffy and disturbing and grotesque. The candy colors pop on every page, further adding to the contrast of sweet and salty. Fans of off-color, weird humor will be devilishly delighted. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
