Via Image Comics and writer/artist pair Jim Zub and Charlie Williams comes Wayward, which according to its creators will introduce readers to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer for a new generation." Set in Japan, Wayward is a coming-of-age story about a group of teenagers beating the snot out of mythical Japanese monsters! For more about the story, read on...
The Plot of Wayward: Rori Lane is an outsider by nature, but moving to Tokyo to live with her single Mom has only exacerbated her weirdness. She’s feeling out of sorts, worried about fitting in and, as if that wasn’t enough, strange things are beginning to happen. Glowing symbols and patterns are starting to appear before her eyes… and she’s the only one who seems to notice.
In WAYWARD a group of teens living in Tokyo find a common bond in manifesting strange, supernatural abilities. As they begin to unravel the mystery behind their powers and their common source they’re drawn into a war with the vestiges of Japan’s monstrous mythic past.
