    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Nov 25, 2014

    This comic book is great. This book has a great combination of humor, action, fantasy and kick ass moments. Jim Zub's mind and creativity is truly at play in the pages of this book. Combine that fantastic writing with art that stands out from other comic books and you have one of the most original and exciting comic books out.  I cannot recommend this book enough to everyone. The story is fantastic and the art is some of the best in comics today. This comic book truly is one of the most exciting and original out today. Do yourself a favour and check this book out.  Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Nov 25, 2014

    Wayward offers a mystery that is as unknown as it is alluring. Like Rori following the glowing threads that guide (or lead) her, we don't know where this mystery will take us, but let's follow! Rori is not so much Buffy fighting monsters as she is like Harry Potter guiding us into a fantastic labyrinth of conspiracies and old secrets. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson Nov 30, 2014

    Wayward #4 is an awesome issue and the series is helmed by two creators who know exactly what they are doing and how they want events to play out. You're doing yourself a disservice not picking it up. Read Full Review

    The issue was an absolute blast to read from beginning to end. Things are finally picking up and hopefully the momentum carries over into the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Dec 1, 2014

    Overall, this issue is fun, but doesn't feel like it really went anywhere. This won't be a problem when read in trade format, but when the next issue is still three months away it leaves me a little disappointed. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 28, 2014

    While predictable in some ways, Wayward has had a good first four issues as it starts to explore what it's doing, who the characters are and teasing towards the larger storyline itself. The focus on the kids who are caught up in it that have no idea what's really going on allows us to discover it just as they do, though partially we know a little bit more. This issue is heavily focused on the action and it's warranted as it lets the creative team really show their stuff in a great way – and beautifully colored at that. It's a fast moving piece, even with as much dialogue and narration as there is, and all of it tantalizes more of what the story is going to be about. I'm starting to feel a little more invested in it bit by bit and this is definitely a good issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Nov 26, 2014

    Exploring Japanese mythology in a contemporary setting is a refreshing concept, but simply relying on that to intrigue an audience doesn't bode well for my continued interest in Wayward. Hopefully Jim Zub can get back to Rori's personal story. Otherwise I think I'm taking a one-way ticket away from Tokyo. Read Full Review
