    One thought on “Wendy's Revenge”

    1. So amazing. Read it in one go. Nails life in Vancouver, Yokohama and on the rez in one very funny graphic novel.

    2. Both of the Wendy books didn't do much for me in the first third but then they start really charming me by the second half hence my ratings that are always in the middle. I think Scott is a really good cartoonist and I love his expressiveness. I loved the visual choice for the translated pages, though after about 10 pages it gets kinda exhausting, but I guess it's the point.

    3. Hilarious look at a half outsider, half hipster artist that is just clearly misunderstood by her peers. An acute look at the art world and millennials trying to navigate their way around it and life in general. Scott's art was original, and I loved how he set-up the reads for the Tokyo section. Super cool read.

    4. THESE BOOKS ARE SO GOOD. I WANT A MILLION MORE OF THEM. I was honestly worried the sequel wasn't going to be as good as the first but IT IS BETTER. Scott goes in even deeper on Wendy-- she grows up a lot, becomes much more self-aware, shrugs off the bullshit of her (increasing amount of) past lives. It is such a blast to watch this character evolve. She is so real, very often uncomfortably so.

    5. I love this book so much! I regularly encounter people like those depicted in this book and it's hilariously cathartic to realize I'm not the only one to find such insanity (and humour) in the arts world.

    6. scarily relatable for those with social anxiety, extra points if you've been to art school or the art scene in vancouver.
