Wayward Takes Off in a New Story Arc


Jim Zub, Steven Cummings and Tamra Bonvillain have a good thing going with Wayward. The series has garnered lots of praise and Image Comics is poised to launch a new story arc in Wayward #11 this November. Not only that, but Cover A will be part one of five connecting covers—one per each issue in this story arc—that will fit together into a panorama illustration.

"Our second story arc ended with massive revelations and the repercussions of those will ripple across Japan and beyond,” said Zub. “The supernatural forces that hunt our teens have been thrust out into the open and a clash between the old world and new will push Tokyo to the brink of disaster. It's big crazy stuff and I can't wait for readers to see what we have in store."

Rori Lane has already faced unique challenges settling into her new life in Japan. She and an eclectic band of other gifted youths battled the dark underbelly of the supernatural. The battle was not without its losses, and it continues to rage. Wayward #11 Cover A is by Cummings and Bonvillain(Diamond code: SEP150583) and hits stores Wednesday, November 18th. Cover B by Nick Bradshaw (Diamond code: SEP150584) and Cover C by Karibu (Diamond code: SEP150585) will also be available Wednesday, November 18th. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, October 26th.

Writer Jim Zub (SKULLKICKERS) and artists Steven Cummings (THE DARKNESS, Gene Pool) and Tamra Bonvillain (RAT QUEENS, Black Dawn) will launch a new story arc in their spectacularly supernatural ongoing series WAYWARD this November. WAYWARD #11's cover A will be part one of five connecting covers—one per each issue in this story arc—that will fit together into a panorama illustration.

Previously in WAYWARD, Rori Lane faced some unique challenges settling into her new life in Japan. She and an eclectic band of other gifted youths battled the dark underbelly of the supernatural. The battle was not without its losses, and it continues to rage.

In WAYWARD #11, the new gods of Japan rise in Tokyo and the world will never be the same. The question is: will the old myths survive?

"Our second story arc ended with massive revelations and the repercussions of those will ripple across Japan and beyond,” said Zub. “The supernatural forces that hunt our teens have been thrust out into the open and a clash between the old world and new will push Tokyo to the brink of disaster. It's big crazy stuff and I can't wait for readers to see what we have in store."
