Over the past few weeks I've immersed myself in the world of Wayward with a two part binge read. (Volume 1: String Theory and Volume 2: Ties That Bind) This brilliant comic from Image Comics, written by Jim Zub, with art by Steve Cummings, quickly sky rocketed to the top of my favorite comics list. So, what's the best part of binge reading trade paperbacks? Being caught up to read the single issues as they release. This week brings Wayward #11 into our hands, and after an intense ending to issue #10, I couldn't wait to read it.
[Spoilers for Wayward #11 below!]
Don't worry, if you happen to need a bit of a refresher on what's happened thus far there is a great description at the beginning of the issue:
If you remember, Rori Lane had a pretty epic moment at the end of the last issue, and now Japan is in an uproar trying to make sense of it all. Exhausted from using her powers so intensely, Rori is out of commission. While Shirai, Nikaido, and Ayane try to lay low with her, Ohara heads back home to see her family. Unfortunately, they don't know who she is due to their memories being erased by Rori. From there, things just get more intense…
You can really feel the anxiety that Japan is feeling throughout the issue. I'm fascinated by the way things are unfolding. Zub and Cummings are building a complex, intriguing foundation for what's to come in Wayward. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the addition of a new character with some special powers of his own. With all that said, the legendary comic Wayward continues…don't miss out! Pick up issue #11 this week.
