    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Mar 25, 2015

    Wayward continues to be a great read. At its core, the story fascinates me. Jim Zub does a great job of pacing the plot. While we did get a new crop of characters, I did appreciate the fact that we saw some characters from the first arc. By introducing new characters and expanding the plot, Jim Zub is doing a fantastic job of creating a Wayward world or "Wayworld". The art is just amazing and deserves to be looked at by your own eyes.The new arc started very strong and I am very excited to conitnue reading WAYWARD for its Wayworld. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Mar 25, 2015

    The art too, is still fantastic. The battle at the end looks great, and some of the strange paranormal events that Ohara experiences are all great looking. In terms of quality, nothing has changed here. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 26, 2015

    Admittedly, having long been involved in anime and manga, there's no real surprises here in how Emi is presented or her struggles. It's standard fare but realistic fare with how many kids survive in that system and that kind of hopelessness that they feel. It serves well for many characters in how they adapt to the world that opens up before them in other properties, and we look to get some of that with Emi here as well, though potentially with some interesting character twists based on her view of Ayane from the start. The book is definitely a welcome return to my reading schedule as Jim Zub handles the narration very well, making it engaging and interesting, and Steve Cummings really brings the city and its environs to life in a great way, with a mixture of its beauty and its trash, but also the mind numbing aspects of it as well with its conformity. Here's hoping to another good arc kicking off with this installment and more to come. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 5, 2015

    Wayward continues to present a very real interpretation of high school life, albeit one where giant dog monsters attack the students.  Jim Zub puts forward characters that are instantly relatable and manages to introduce a brand new one, who, by the end of the issue, is like one of the gang.  It's not cheap, like that time The Brady Bunch introduced cousin Oliver.  Instead, it's very organic and comes through naturally.  Now to watch as horrible things potentially happen to this poor girl.

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Mar 24, 2015

    Not only is this an enjoyable, beautiful comic, but educational as well. The cultural essays from Zac Davisson provide fascinating, informative insight into Japanese culture and society.This is one title I was dying to see return and this creative team did not disappoint. New readers should absolutely pick up the trade paperback of the first story arc and then follow-up with this issue. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Michael Bettendorf Mar 31, 2015

    Wayward #6 holds tight to the essence of the first arc and maintains mystery. The added protagonist is a welcomed addition. Her personality is similar to Roris, but her experiences differ and she is distinguished enough for readers to both care about and like her. Ohara doesnt seem to be a replacement, but perhaps a placeholder for whats to come. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Mar 25, 2015

    Wayward #6 is not a bad issue, but it's not all that great either. It does a solid job of introducing a new main character to the cast (who's better written and has more development than most in the comic) and setting up some interesting mysteries to what happened between this issue and the last, but the writing and pacing are just not up to snuff. There are just still too many underdeveloped components, the pacing is erratic at points, and other small problems that add up. At this point, if you liked the comic up until now, you'll probably like it just fine here. However, if you are still not sure at this point, this issue won't change your mind. Read Full Review
