Digital Comics Review: Wynter #1

Special

17-year-old Liz Wynter lives in a future where no one can ever be special. She's out to prove everyone wrong.

 

Already up to issue #3 this series is being run on Comixology and is unique, not only in its story, but also the art. The front cover gives you a taste, and what’s inside continues the theme. With some amazing painted style artwork, you get a real dystopian feel.

 

At first I found the beginning a bit jarring, but as I read on, I began to understand more of the story and the world(s) it is set in – it’s worth a second read, as you appreciate the story more that way. The use of apps, the people and the government is very well done, with it all interlinked. I was a bit worried about the lettering to begin with – not usually a worry of mine – but then I realised that the text boxes came from one of the ‘apps’ and it fit in nicely with the whole theme of the story.


 

Our protagonist – Liz Wynter is not exactly what you would call ‘likable’, but there are points about her where you can relate – she thinks she isn’t unique, and all she gets are her app telling her she’s not – take that premise and run with it.

 

Even the police know she isn’t, predicting her moves in an attempt to capture her – it would all be very depressing, if it wasn’t for this underlying story that is hinted at throughout with the government….

All in all this is an excellent read, it has a way forward and seems to have a brilliant team combining the art and story!

Wynter #1 is available on Comixology – along with #2 & #3
