The Beat – The Wendy Project

A New Take on Peter Pan, The Wendy Project is Out Today

Out today from Super Genius and Papercutz, The Wendy Project is a 96 page fresh, deeply moving and modern take on the world of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and an extraordinary story about memory and magic, life and loss. Featuring stunning art by Veronica Fish, The Wendy Project is the graphic novel debut of actress, screenwriter and The Wendy Project creator Melissa Jane Osborne. Their collaboration is breathtaking and beautiful and a testament to the power of self-expression and storytelling in the wake of tragedy.

It is a late summer night when 16-year-old Wendy Davies crashes her car into a New England lake with her two younger brothers in the backseat. When she wakes in the hospital, she is told that her youngest brother, Michael, is dead. Wendy — a once rational teenager — shocks her family by insisting that Michael is alive and in the custody of a mysterious flying boy. Placed in a new school, Wendy negotiates fantasy and reality as students and adults around her resemble characters from Neverland. Given a sketchbook by her therapist, Wendy starts to draw. But is “The Wendy Project” merely her safe space, or a portal between worlds? As Wendy works her way through her emotions of loss, sadness and survivor’s guilt she chooses to confront her feelings and, contrary to Peter’s motto . . . grow up.

This publication marks the first time The Wendy Project has been available in book form, following its release online and at comic conventions as a four issue comic book series from Emet Comics, an LA-based publisher dedicated to telling stories created by women and featuring strong female protagonists.
