Larry gets his own issue. I mean, there’s brackets, but Larry gets a flashback. An origin story of sorts. Dean Rankine does the art on the flashback, which takes Larry from his inglorious start as a larvae to his greatest achievements. The writing is fantastic, though it’s sort of unclear what Young wants to do with the issue, if anything. Even for a filler issue, Fairyland is kind of heavy on the cotton candy. The issue does set up another big plot moment possibility for the book, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens next.
