THE PERFECT NEW SERIES FOR WAYWARD BUFFY FANS

That's what Image Comics' PR says anyway. I guess Dark Horse's Buffy comic isn't real…

Can Rori unlock the secret to her powers in time to fight mythological monsters?

Writer Jim Zub (SKULLKICKERS, Samurai Jack) teams up with penciler Steve Cummings (Legends of the Dark KnightDeadshot) and color artist John Rauch (INVINCIBLE) to create a Buffy the Vampire Slayer for a new generation in WAYWARD, coming from Image Comics in August.

Rori Lane is an outsider by nature, but moving to Tokyo to live with her single Mom has only exacerbated her weirdness. She's feeling out of sorts, worried about fitting in and, as if that wasn't enough, strange things are beginning to happen. Glowing symbols and patterns are starting to appear before her eyes… and she's the only one who seems to notice.

In WAYWARD a group of teens living in Tokyo find a common bond in manifesting strange, supernatural abilities. As they begin to unravel the mystery behind their powers and their common source they're drawn into a war with the vestiges of Japan's monstrous mythic past.

WAYWARD #1 arrives in stores on 8/27, and will be available for $3.50 with special variant covers by Alina Urusov (Birds of Prey), Jeff "Chamba" Cruz (Street Fighter), and Adam Warren (Empowered).

Oh and here's a successive teaser to yesterday's…
