Wendy was at a crossroads, but the next chapter of her adventures sees her leave Montreal and head west to Vancouver, then to Toronto, and finally to Los Angeles. Filled with sardonic wit and ample realness, Wendy has her eyes set on the art world and she's out for revenge.
Walter Scott is an artist from Montreal, Quebec. His work has been exhibited across Canada and Wendy has been serialized on Random House Canada's literary digital magazine Hazlitt. The eponymous first volume of Wendy was released in 2014 and was nominated for the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Graphic Novel.

About the Author
-- Ariana Reines, author of Mercury "The unique offspring of Matt Groening, Ad Reinhardt, and Alison Bechdel, Walter Scott's Wendy is one of the most heartbreakingly astute commentaries on the vagaries and pretensions of contemporary art (and all the wonderful weirdos one can make-out with there). Wendy is one of the most important characters in a genre Scott is helping to invent. I am a total and sincere fan." -- Andrew Berardini, Correspondent for Artforum "A fantastic collection of nervous breaks and silly putty facial expressions." -- Michael DeForge, author of Dressing, the Lose series, and more "Wendy is a triumph of bitchiness. She's the Bridget Jones of art hags. Anyone who dares to look into her hilarious Edvard Munch eyeholes will see themselves reflected back."
-- Lisa Hanawalt, author of My Dirty Dumb Eyes Praise for Wendy "Scott takes a snarky scene report, and subtly shades it into an affecting character study - how's that for art?" -- Sean Rogers, The Globe and Mail "Walter Scott's Wendy comics present a sort-of field guide to Millennial scenesters." -- Hillary Brown, Paste "The specifics, and the way they're gently derided, will likely be comforting to anyone under-employed and under-30 trying to make it in the arts in Canada, but its author, Walter Scott, makes Wendy's journey to figure out her place in the world relatable enough for anyone who's ever had to do the same--so basically, everyone." -- Whitney Mallett, The National Post "Part satire, part gleeful revel in his character's antics, Wendyis a gradually more complex look at the art world today and its expectations on artists, but also a comment on navigating the work/play quota and life itself." -- Zainab Akhtar, Publishers Weekly
