Why Read It?
Wayward is the latest ongoing comics series from Canadian author Jim Zub. It's often described as "Buffy in Japan," and it's easy to see the comparison to the famous vampire slayer. It's a story of teens discovering they have special powers, and directing those powers against monsters from Japanese folklore. Despite the comparison to Buffy, the characters in Wayward are truly unique and can freely stand on their own. They all have distinct powers and struggle to find the best way to use them, all while encountering their own personal issues and being held back by their own flaws.
