Wynter is a sci-fi digital comic that will make you stop and think.
New Worlds Comics Wynter is the first comic reviewed on AnonymousGeek, and I couldn’t have found a better book. Luckily I didn’t have to look at all to find Wynter. Writer and CEO Guy Hasson reached out to us on Twitter and I am so glad he did. The company website can be found at newworldscomics.com
This book throws you into a sci-fi universe governed by a galactic government where humans have populated so many planets that every possible combination of human DNA has already occurred so many times that no one is special. Also, everyone has a voice in their head that keeps them connected to each other, government statistics, and marketers. If you own a smart phone, this comic should hit home. We are quickly becoming an over connected society and some of the initial premises of Wynter are almost natural progressive steps we are taking. Scary. Absolutely scary.
Our heroine Liz Wynter is very anti-hero, and I don’t care what Glen Beck says anti-heroes are interesting. Through just the first two issues we get to see Liz go from nobody special to government enemy. The story telling does not stop with Liz though. The government agent sent after her is shaping up to be one of the more fascinating villains I’ve met in a comic book. Villain may not be the right word for Supreme Agent Alex Grace, after all he is just a guy doing his job. That job is assassinating those attempting to overthrow the government.
I am very excited about this book and can’t wait to see the direction it will take. Issue 3 hit the digital shelves last week, so get yourself the first three issues if you can. This is a book you do not want to be missing out on. Nothing seems too taboo for this book. It is a much more mature book, and the storytelling reflects this in its own maturity. Before closing this little review, I’d like to touch on one more aspect of Wynter. The amazing art. I’ve read a few indie digital only comics and the art was ok at best. Elekes has a crazy amount of talent and very vividly brings this world to life. It’s uncommon, if not rare, for a writer and artist to create something new so cohesively, but Hasson and Elekes have done it.
