This was such a fun story arc to read. We got to really explore a dynamic of superherodom that is seldom done. What if the team was just two brothers and their dad? What if they were step brothers? What if they weren’t the same color? What if the dad was a pregnant super goat? These are the questions that need to be asked in today’s comic book world!

MAGIC AND MYTH UNLEASHED ON THE STREETS OF MODERN JAPAN IN WAYWARD
First volume of hit series in stores in March
“Wayward by the great Jim Zub is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
Writer Jim Zub (SKULLKICKERS, Samurai Jack) and artist Steven Cummings (Legends of the Dark Knight, Deadshot) spin enchantment and mystery together in a fantasy story about one girl’s battle against the mythological creatures everyday mortals fail to see. Set in Japan, WAYWARD’s depiction of the busy city streets of Tokyo and its rich occult history make it as much a living, breathing character as teen protagonist Rori.
In this latest issue of Wayward, events are picking up for Rori and the gang. Think of this one as a team-building exercise for our “Monster Mashers”. Between Wayward, Goners and Oddly Normal, Image Comics is quickly becoming my go-to source for good supernatural stories. Hat’s off to Zub, Jim Zub is doing a superb job crafting a supernatural world that is both fun and exciting to get immersed in, the series truly has a very Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibe about it. I’m digging Steve Cumming’s artwork. It’s simply wonderful to take in, the panels are fluid and capture the urban setting of the story with so much detail. Check out this preview.

I’ve been following the work of writer Jim Zub since I first discovered his 2010 fantasy knee-slapper Skullkickers, making me an instant fan. Most of Zub’s work thrusts readers right into the midst of the action, pushing the overall pacing by forcing readers to play catchup. His lead-ins and introductions in previous books have resembled anything but a typical methodology. Which makes Wayward an unexpected yet refreshing departure from Zub’s previous work. While the slow crawl has been full of interesting character introductions, the overarching story has yet to fully reveal itself, leaving readers wondering what exactly Wayward is, and pondering if they want to hang out long enough to find out.
