Wynter Changes the Face of Digital Comics



Liz Wynter lives at a time where every thought, action, and possible DNA-sequence as existed before. A small computer implanted in people allows them to know the level of attraction of a person they make eye contact with and just how many people have had the same thoughts, feelings or experiences concurrently. Liz wants desperately to be special, even though her small implant keeps telling her that so many teenagers before her have had the same thought. In order to escape the boredom, Liz participates in risky sex and spends a good portion of her youth uploading her escapades to the Cloud; a system everyone in the universe is currently connected to. Liz Wynter steals certain applications from the brains of everyone she meets in an attempt to learn more about the world and look for some way to be special. She locks onto a specific application that shows her about a possible disaster headed to a youth leadership grouping. After the disaster occurs, Liz gets into trouble and finds herself behind bars. She quickly discovers someone close to her  she shared the application with has been killed, and that someone is coming to take care of her next.

Guy Hasson and Aron Elekes do not only the work of script and art for Wynter, but also all of their own promotion. The watercolor-like art of the first 2 issues of Wynter were startlingly beautiful. With a more punk look, Liz and her friend Shane both have features more unique than most people have likely grown used to seeing. The nude figure of the human body is displayed many times without fear, but there are also images of the figure wasting away from hypothetical age.

Wynter was not only startlingly beautiful, it was captivating. The book is easy to read through for the story, but the extent of the artwork will cause the reader to take time with the pages, often turning back to see the detail of the work.

Wynter issues #1 and #2 are available in digital format only, from New Worlds Comics.
