You might be a fan of Skottie Young from his amazing “Baby Marvel” covers he’s done for Marvel Comics, or even his acclaimed Rocket Raccoon series, or even the Eisner-nominated adaptations he did of L. Frank Baum’s series of OZ novels.
And there’s a better chance that if you like any of these works, you’re a huge fan of his genre-skewering, creator owned comic I Hate Fairyland from Image Comics.
And if you’re attending San Diego Comic-Con next month, you’ll be able to pick up this exclusive statue available through the figure makers at Gentle Giant.
The statue will be sold at the convention in limited amounts each day, meaning you’ll have multiple chances to snag one. It’ll sell for $120 and Young himself will be on hand at certain times throughout the convention for signings.
Skottie Young’s I Hate Fairyland Gertrude Statue
Life is hard when you are 6 years old… and even harder when you have been trapped in Fairlyland for almost 30 years and your mind and emotions grow but your body does not. That is exactly what happened to Gertude, the main character in Skottie Young’s I Hate Fairyland from Image Comics and it’s made her a little… unhinged.
No one in Fairyland or on your collectibles shelf will be safe from Queen Gert when she comes to reign. Gert stands triumphant atop a defeated mushroom with a bomb in one hand and her bloody axe in the other. As you look into her eyes, there is no question as to how she feels about being stranded in Fairyland.
This statue is based on an original sketch by Skottie Young, created specifically for this piece. This limited edition statue will come hand numbered with a certificate of authenticity.
I HATE FAIRYLAND, Created by New York Times Bestseller and Eisner award-winning cartoonist Skottie Young!
ONCE UPON A TIME in Fairyland, there was a girl….who hated the place and did messed up stuff!
Meet Gertrude, a grown-up in a six year-old girls body, who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for nearly thirty years on a maddening quest to return home. It’s just her, a fly named Larry, and a Battle-axe, against Slug Lords, Mushroom Men, Zombie Fauns, Barbarians, her nemesis Queen Cloudia and all kinds of insane insanity! Sculpted by real giants at Gentle Giant Studios, each piece is highly detailed and hand-painted by one-eyed elves who dip cotton candy paint brushes in the body fluids of Rainbow Griffons. This supremely magical collectible will make you the envy of all your friends so guard it well, but do not let it go to your head. Of course, we can’t prove any of it and all of this is pure speculation on our part, we just work here.
Platinum members of Gentle Giant’s Premier Guild can pre-order the statue right now to secure their own.
