Walter Scott's Wendy Comes to Chicago

Join editions in welcoming Walter Scott to Chicago for a reading from Wendy, a collection of his outstanding Wendy comics published by Koyama press.

Wendy is trendy, and has dreams of art stardom—but our young urban protagonist is perpetually derailed by the temptations of punk music, drugs, alcohol, parties, and boys. Hegemonies and hearts are broken in this droll and iconoclastic look at the worlds of art and twentysomethings.

WALTER SCOTT is an artist from Montréal. His work has been exhibited across Canada and Wendy has been serialized on Random House Canada’s literary digital magazine Hazlitt.

“If you are or were ever a 20-something art school party girl, this comic will stare directly into your soul. If you aren’t and never have been, that’s okay too because Wendy’s art show-littered search for happiness, questionable life choices and totally human tendency for failure are just a great read anyway.” — Olivia Whittick, VICE Magazine
