Description

The outrageously funny and painfully relatable satire of an aspiring artist and millennial culture. Walter Scott s Wendy comics have become a critical sensation, with rave reviews in The New Yorker and the Guardian, and an appearance in the Best American Comics anthology. Learn Wendy s origin story as Scott hilariously plumbs millennial culture, creative ennui, and the nepotism of the art world s institutions. Wendy s an aspiring artist in a party city, and she s in a rut. She spends her time snorting MDMA in gallery bathrooms and watching Nurse Jackie reruns on her laptop while hungover. So when she s accepted into the prestigious Flojo Island residency, Wendy vows to buckle down and get working. But during the remote, woodsy residency, Wendy and her collaborator/BFF Winona put on a performance piece that becomes the centre of an art world controversy, and so Wendy returns to Montreal, getting a job in a coffee shop to make ends meet. With Wendy, Scott launches the Wendyverse, brimming with painfully relatable characters like the back-stabbing frenemyTina, the name-dropping Paloma, the cool drummer Wendy obsesses over, Jeff, and of course, our treasured Wendy, the hot mess we can t live without. In blunt, laughout-loud funny vignettes with perfect punchlines, Scott illuminates the opacity of artspeak and the ceaseless anxieties plaguing a largely privileged generation.
