This week’s review:
The Wendy Project #1
Written By: Melissa Jane Osborne
Art By: Veronica Fish
Here’s the summary:
A modern-day Wendy Darling confronts her sanity when she suspects a mysterious flying boy has abducted her little brother. Placed in a new school, Wendy struggles to separate fantasy from reality as those around her start to resemble characters from Neverland.
First things first, Fish’s art style is beautiful. Her focused use of color provides a great visual narrative, distinguishing Wendy’s breaks in reality.
The composition of the storytelling uses the perspective of being Wendy’s journal (which she can’t get rid of no matter how she tries) and is a clever way to tell the story.
After her brother disappears, she is told she is dealing with grief because no one believes her story to be true. But she may not be imagining things after all.
The story is dramatic and engrossing. Like, Zana, this first issue has me wanting more. I love this title and can NOT recommend it enough. If you like the literary tale of Peter Pan, if you like young adult stories, if you like art and great story, you need to read this.
