Wayward #10 Reviews!


WAYWARD #10, the big finish to our second story arc, arrived in stores last Wednesday. Let’s see what critics thought of this explosive issue (SPOILERS in many of the reviews!):

The AV Club: “Zub and Cummings aren’t Japanese, but they have a deep respect for the country that shines through in their work.”

Big Glasgow: 5/5 “This issue concludes the second story arc in this amazing series – and trust me, you won’t believe what you’ll read at the end of this book.”

Comic Attack: 4/5 “Wayward is a fantastic title that is rich in Japanese mythology and a great entry point for those that aren’t ready to dive head first into manga territory.”

Comic Book Bin: 10/10 “Zub’s script does not disappoint, and co-creator Steve Cummings brings the script to life as magical graphical storytelling that remains grounded at the same time it brings the supernatural to life with imagination and inventiveness.”

Comic Crusaders: 4.25/5 “Jim Zub keeps the plot tight and shapes the story to inform the action.”

Fandom Post: “Wayward finishes out the second arc on a hell of a cliffhanger”

Panels: “The essays on Japanese mythology at the end of each issue continue to be great, and the world just keeps getting more and more interesting.”

Snap Pow: 9/10 ” I can gleefully say that this entry earns the right to have a spot in your buy pile”

TM Stash: 9/10 “The outstanding, exceptionally well-written and beautifully illustrated series hits yet another high point with issue #10. No spoilers…but you WILL find out just what the title of this series means.”

Under the Comic Covers: “I loved it. It’s stupendous. Zub really knows how to close out an arc.”

We The Nerdy: 9/10 “The speech Rori gives is perfect in both how it ends the arc and how it encapsulates Wayward as a whole.”

  1. Every issue thus far has been amazing. #10 However took it to a whole new level.
