    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Jul 28, 2015

    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. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 29, 2015

    Wayward #10 is one of the more action packed issues in the series. Nothing was held back in showing what was at stake in this fight and that made it all the more intense. It really looked like a war and a good taste of what can be expected to come as these Yokai don't seem like the worst they will face. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jul 30, 2015

    That all being said, the comic is fantastic, made even better by the last couple of panels when Rori and Shirai show up. The speech Rori gives is perfect in both how it ends the arc and how it encapsulates Wayward as a whole. This is American Gods set in Japan. Read Full Review

    Wayward #10 is the type of high quality outing that we, as an audience,deserve. The creative team pushes their world forward without stumbling over the debris of a confrontation that's bound to have an impact in the releases to come. And so for now I can gleefully say that this entry earns the right to have a spot in your buy pile as it comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Jul 31, 2015

    Wayward's shift puts it on par with Neil Gaiman's American Gods in terms of size and scale.  Jim Zub and Steve Cummings are gearing up for an epic battle of the gods with Rori and her friends right in the middle of it.  This issue ends with a rather awesome shot that fills you with anticipation of what's to come.  Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a few months before we get to see the next chapter.  At the very least, we get an idea of where the book's title comes from.

    Jim Zub, apart from winning the third coolest name in comics award keeps the plot tight and shapes the story to inform the action. There's some brilliant ideas, like an army of house cats, ninja birdmen and an arachnophobe's worst nightmare; spiders perched in the ear used as mystic communicators, which made my brain make a noise like my tongue was stuck to my hard pallet and I was trying to shout for toilet paper.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Aug 5, 2015

    Issue #10 caps off the second act of Wayward's storyline (and marks a brief hiatus as the creators ramp up for the next act) with an extended battle against supernatural forces. There's still some intriguing mysteries, and the forces of the world (mundane and supernatural) are not as cut and dry, black and white, good and evil as you might expect. Hopefully, the cliffhanger page marks the end of a few problems of the series, such as the absence of the main character, and we can delve even more into the world of Wayward. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 31, 2015

    As a side note, the book again continues to bring some great background material and information relevant to the story at hand as a backup feature from Zack Davisson. A lot of it is material I'm long familiar with from years of being involved in anime, manga and Japanese culture and society in general, but they're a real treasure to read through, refresh and educate for new and old fans alike.

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Jul 30, 2015

    All in all, Wayward ends it's second arc on a strong note. The ending is surprising for both good and bad, but allows Wayward to expand it's sandbox creating more space for these talented creators to explore. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 29, 2015

    Wayward #10 may work as a fine conclusion to the second arc for people who've enjoyed the series thus far. However, this issue is also frustrating and the entire arc, like the last one, is underdeveloped. Wayward is one of the most rushed and poorly paced comics I've read. This series isn't remotely recommended at all due to how much it is lacking and how much it is losing due to its pace. Just save your money for something much better, since Image Comics and other publishers have much better books out right now. Read Full Review
