    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Nov 18, 2015

    I think that the backmatter from Davisson explaining the history of Yokai being systematically removed from having such a huge role in Japanese society is instructive of how Zub is thinking about this title: Zub is using this artistic team to put the magic back into these settings. Wayward shows that a little bit of mythology goes a long way in telling a magical story. Read Full Review

    Arc 3 kicks off with a BANG. More of the same Japanglish goodness, character depth, and cultural complexity we've come to expect. I love it. I'm lovin' it. I NEED MOAR! Read Full Review

    Flip Geeks - Paul Ramos Nov 28, 2015

    Yes, this chapter has a number of violent scenes like head bashing/smashing, with some visual imageries that are quite acceptable in Japan, but not in some conservative societies, if you can get that kind of cultural reference. Yet, this one kicks start decently to illuminate why the youngsters should first learn the meanings of patience, maturity, self-control, respect, and to some degree, lessons of the past.

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Nov 17, 2015

    Theres a reason that this series has made it to 11 issues. The team has tapped into a story that pleases so many different audiences and can go down so many plot avenues. Also, the comic not only serves to entertain, but educate via subtext. All around,Wayward continues to be one of Images best and most refreshing titles. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 19, 2015

    After the first ten issues of Wayward and understanding its release structure I've found that when the book comes back or starts the new arc that it's at its toughest for me. I enjoy the book thoroughly but the reconnect phase of it is just hard among all the other media that I consume. By the end of this issue I'm getting back into the flow of it and enjoying it, though the frustration is there in just what isn't said on the page to help readers reconnect that pick it up in the singles. I'm definitely curious to see what's going on with Rori as well as what the elder gods are going to come up with for a plan since it looks like they're going to avoid the traditional route. Hopefully the book will take some interesting chances as it moves forward – as well as giving us a bit more time to really connect with the characters more as I'm feeling a bit distant from them at this point.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 18, 2015

    Wayward #11 feels like a step in the right direction for the series, something that was really needed for a very long time, and is easily the best issue of the series. The writing has improved greatly with Jim Zub taking his time with the plot, allowing for more breathing room for the characters and to see the fallout from the last arc in action. However, the series is still in some desperate need of more character growth and development for the leads, especially with how unlikeable Rori has become. However, more than ever before, I am curious about what Wayward has in store going forward. Read Full Review
