Reviews

"Art can seduce its audience by baring a soft spot; Scott further opens his work to a multifaceted relatability by creating a context for it with the storytelling of popular media." -- Brian Droitcour, Art in America

"The sequel to 2014's Wendy, this volume continues to document the title character's hilarious, humiliating, occasionally poignant adventures as she navigates her way through the treacherous waters of the millennial hipster artist scene." -- Rob Kirby

"Scott draws as if there's a grant deadline to meet or a party to get to his wonky, thick lines have an appealing haste to them, like Wendy herself, off-the-cuff and wilier than they look." -- Sean Rogers, The Globe and Mail

"Scott has a talent for perfectly capturing and conveying the subtleties of life as a millennial within his series of panels. You know, like, the urgency of posting selfies on social media, staring at your phone waiting for a text message from a crush, or being sprawled out in bed--bra-less--binge watching Netflix." -- Jessica Deer, The Eastern Door

"With Wendy's Revenge, Scott captures without mercy the foibles, pretensions, and gross misjudgments of his millennial cast, while never losing his grasp of their humanity or their believability. It's a wonderfully funny series, simultaneously caustic and heartfelt." -- Rob Kirby, The Comics Journal

"More soulful and more true than 99% of all the art you've ever seen or made, Wendy is THE chronicle of our vainglorious age. She's our Sentimental Education, our Emma Bovary, our shitfaced Mary Tyler Moore. I want her on billboards, on prime time TV, I want her everywhere, like a Simpsons for the international and wretchedly sophisticated new normal."
-- 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
