  • In a town where movie-star good looks are only a surgery away, it's hard to tell what's real. A cosmetic surgeon takes pride in his best work — an ingénue of the silver screen literally built for success. While he works to convince her that one more surgery will perfect her looks, his aging wife struggles to keep his interest, and his ambitious assistant moves to usurp his practice.
  • Acclaimed mini-comic creator Will Dinski presents a haunting, pastel vision of beauty and decay in Fingerprints, his full-color debut graphic novel.

From Publishers Weekly:

Dinski's story of plastic surgeons in a culture where image is all important aims to be provocative, but ends up not as substantial as it could be. Dr. Fingers is an accomplished cosmetic surgeon whose most prized client is Hollywood superstar actress Vanessa Zimba. Fingers is so proud of Vanessa's appearance that he both imitates her features in other clients and constantly seeks to find new ways to perfect Vanessa's face. This causes constant distress for Fingers's wife, Jennifer, herself resembling an aging version of Vanessa. It's also a source of inspiration and jealousy for Fingers's assistant, Yumiko Tatsu, who finds herself performing most of the actual surgery and soon leaves to start her own practice. When he sees his assistant's work take popular culture by storm, Dr. Fingers finds himself suffering at the expense of his long-held belief that people are defined by their appearances. Dinski provides both art and writing, and the basic visuals further hit home his point of how worrying too much about how people look can lead to all people looking the same.

From Booklist:

The false nature of cosmetic surgery is the subject of this thin, quick, and entertaining story. Plastic surgeon Dr. Fingers only serves A-list clients, including Hollywood star Vanessa Zimba. He attends a high-profile party thrown by his artistic creation, Zimba, and becomes enchanted with her over his less-than-gracefully aging wife. When Fingers’ assistant goes public with a “face augmentor”—a machine that gives a quick face job—the whole town begins to look like celebrities. Thinking he is answering a call from starlet Zimba, Fingers rushes to her side only to be met by his wife wearing Zimba’s face. After learning that the face augmentor’s changes are temporary, Fingers decides to work on his wife’s face. Cartoonist Dinski has created a light, fast-paced story with a pleasing design. His drawing style is unconventional but likable in small panels that primarily focus on faces. The compact book design helps by lending a breeziness to what could have been a deeper and more developed story. --Stephen Weiner
