Fortunately, I've posted a new review
Fortunately, the Milk - Neil Gaiman,Skottie Young

Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman with illustrations by Skottie Young is simply delightful. It's hard for me to decide which was more enjoyable: the writing or the drawings. Honestly, I think that the reason I enjoyed this book so much was that the two of them paired so well together. This is exactly the kind of story that an imaginative parent would tell their child and embellish over time. The main character of this book is a father who is left alone to watch the kids and who goes out to get milk for breakfast and takes forever to get back home.When he finally returns he spins an impossible yarn to explain his tardiness to his extremely skeptical children. Anyone who has read Gaiman's writing knows that he's an absolutely wonderful fantasy author but it's his sense of humor that makes this book unique. Maybe you've heard of 'dad jokes' before? Well, this is basically one big dad joke accompanied by super cute ink illustrations. 10/10 on all fronts.

 

I absolutely love the illustrations by Skottie Young. This is another one of those books where you want to hang up the illustrations on the wall of your house...at least I do.

I Hate Fairyland #1
I Hate Fairyland Volume 1: Madly Ever After - Skottie Young

Bursting with color, Skottie Young's art jumps off the page. I love the style and detail he puts into each panel. The story is a violent, absurd, romp through fairyland as Gert murders her way across the countryside in frustration. Perfect for fans of Deadpool style humor. I can recommend this book heartily to the right person, despite it not quite being my cup of tea.

This one is a fast, fun read. The pictures add a lot to the laughter inducing ride too. And I loved some of the reference zings.

Decent premise and nice art, but kind a boring, shallow read.

I Hate Fairyland Volume 1: Madly Ever After - Skottie Young

This book is weird, gory, and twisted... in a really cool way.

I love the idea of the story. It is creative and very humorous. The artwork was very violent, a little much for my personal taste at times, but it was very imaginative. It really turns fantasy on its head.

The dialogue was also very funny. While I didn't like Gertrude all that much, she was hilarious, especially her fairytale-censored-profanity.

Overall, a good read and the start of a cool series.
