Totoro-Inspired Wayward Variant Cover

Our pals at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, Maryland are putting together a special event to celebrate International Tabletop Day on April 11th and I’ll be there signing and sketching up a storm. To help commemorate the event they’re also putting together a store-specific variant cover of WAYWARD #6 you can only get at their shop.

When Steve at Third Eye contacted me about the event and variant, he had a specific concept in mind – Since Wayward is focused on Japan, let’s do a playful riff on a Studio Ghibli image using Wayward. As soon as he suggested it, I knew what we should do.


The original My Neighbor Totoro poster is beautiful, iconic, and wonderfully cute. I asked Steve Cummings and Tamra Bonvillain to do up a version with Ayane and a giant cat waiting at a bus stop in the city and here’s the amazing result:


The Japanese on our cover loosely reads “My Neighbour Wayward”.

If you live anywhere near Annapolis, Maryland make sure you mark Tabletop Day on your calendar and come out for the big event. You can get this Ghibli-inspired special cover, meet me, and try out board games and card games aplenty. A day full of games, comics, and tons of fun!


And, if you’re unable to attend the event in person, you can pre-Order WAYWARD Vol. 1 from Third Eye Comics and get their Totoro variant cover for FREE!
