    Wayward #13 is not perfection by any estimation but it absolutely continues the brilliant trajectory of the franchise without missing a beat. Add in the downright solid conclusion plusthe promise of more supernatural shenanigans in the near future and this one earns praise. Read Full Review

    Wayward #13 aimed to start making some making some waves in this war and nailed it with the ramifications of picking the wrong fight. A lot is set up as well because there has been plenty of subplot with potential to be capitalized upon over time. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 25, 2016

    Wayward blazes through more action here, almost literally in some cases, and that keeps it all moving at a brisk pace that can be a little off-putting. I admit to wanting a bit more meat out of each chapter yet I'm not sure that it would fit with the style of the book at this point. The cast are shaping up well and the larger goals are coming into light in a way that makes it more compelling than it was before, though I wish it had a little more character material as a whole to give it that extra oomph. Zub's script keeps things moving right along though and it's a very fun ride that's made all the more engaging thanks to Cummings artwork. It's just a lot of fun to check out and see all the little details in the backgrounds and the like. This issue also gives us a look in the bonus section at the fake anime aspect that they came up with as well as a four four-panel strips that should make you grin. If only we could get a Wayward one-shot four-panel book. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Jan 21, 2016

    Still, specifically because the comic is being scripted in a manner that leaves no mystery as to its overarching themes, the fights can afford to take the time to be depicted as nitty-gritty. The young kitsune who has just joined the group is herself an embodiment of the young vs. old, “these kids don't respect their elders” theme, which clunkily gets integrated into the fight against her elders. At a certain point, Wayward lays it on too thick with its theme, and in the framing of the battle, it overwhelms the action. Read Full Review
