Synopsis from FCBD Site
Gertrude has been stuck in Fairyland for decades when she finally hears of a secret passage that may be her way back home. But reaching it is easier said than done as she crosses the border into IMAGE where she'll have to chop her way through you favorite characters from Saga, The Walking Dead, Savage Dragon, Spawn, Descender, Black Science, Southern Bastards, and any other character I can add to make sure the original art for this issue sends my children to college! [MATURE]
I love the I Hate Fairyland Series and so I was VERY excited to see one of these left when I arrived for Free Comic Book Day! (Like squee-worthy excited).

This comic follows Gertrude as she tries to make it to the Image offices to confront them about leaving her in Fairyland for so long. On the way she has to pass through a bunch of other Image Comics locations and meets some of the characters as well. There is a glimpse of Saga and The Walking Dead - the two I recognize, then a bunch of others. In Gertrude's own style there is mayhem as she passes through each zone/ level to move on to the next. 

Lots of death, lots of blood, lots of bad jokes and it is all wonderful. I thought this was a fun issue to release for comic day and I love that Gertrude is still peeved about her situation.
