Whit Taylor’s semi-autobiographical minicomics series Madtown High chronicles the lives of high-schoolers as they navigate social and academic challenges. Told through vignettes starring Whit’s alter-ego, Wren, these stories will evoke a flood of memories for those of us who have lived through high school. For those who are experiencing, or about to experience high school, they may be viewed as a comfort a guide or a warning, though we all know how little anything can prepare you for those four liminal years between childhood and adulthood!

Wren is the new kid in school, and she learns the social structures, and where she fits in. She joins school orchestra, and science league. She finds peers among the weird kids in school, who are smart and strange, and sometimes would rather still be children playing make-believe in the woods!
