Wayward #28 Reviews

Adventures In Poor Taste: 8/10 “The art continues to be gorgeous, almost blossoming off the page. The wreckage has an almost haunting beauty to it, and the character expressions are stepped up in the expressiveness department.”

Comic Attack: 8/10 “What can be said about the art team of Cummings and Bonvillain that hasn’t been said over the past twenty-eight issues? The opening sequence beautifully captures the sadness and caring of the moment and when things shift to the supernatural, Bonvillain’s colors take it to the next level.”

Comic Book.com: 8/10 “Steven Cummings and Tamra Bonvillain’s art and color put on paper quite possibly one of the most interesting openings to a demonic battle that you’ll see.”

Geeked Out Nation: 9.1/10 “Wayward #28 throws everyone right into the fray, and I don’t think there has been a bigger stage then now for either success or failure. This issue laughs in the face of anyone who was really hyped up for a turnaround, but even then this remains a story where you expect the unexpected.”

Horror Talk: 10/10 “Wayward is not slowing down at all. It’s steaming forward towards an incredible climax with monsters all around. If this issue is any indication, we’re in for some epic supernatural battles to close out the series.”

Geeked Out Nation: 9.1/10 “…this was everything you imagined when thinking about a big climatic fight breaking loose. The colors used for this issue were both explosive and fantastical.”

Horror Talk: 10/10 “Wayward was pitched as ‘Buffy set in Japan’ and it’s grown so far beyond that. This is an immersive experience steeped in terrifying folklore.”

TMStash: 10/10 “The most beautifully written and illustrated book in comics today turns up the action to 11 in this issue. I’m blown away by the battle scenes here…and the tension is palpable. “

Wayward #26 Reviews

Adventures In Poor Taste: 9/10 “Wayward has always excelled in the visual department, and finally it’s rising to the occasion writing-wise through riveting character drama and escalating the plot to a wonderful crescendo.”

Comic Book.com: 10/10 “With an intriguing story, haunting realism, and a dose of optimism Wayward #26 might be the most perfect comic book you read this week.”

Geeked Out Nation: 8.4/10 “Wayward continues to be that drama with teens that rescues you from all of the cliche. Issue #26 brings these kids together again, but only to challenge the things that keep them sane, and keep them on the right side of this war.”

Horror Talk: 10/10 “If this is how the final arc begins, I can’t imagine how it’s going to end.”

Multiversity Comics: 8/10 “It’s the kind of issue that has made reading the series an overall pleasure. The march to the Wayward finale begins, and the book is firing on all cylinders.”

TM Stash: 10/10 “This series is quite possibly the most beautifully written and illustrated book in comics today.”
