Written by Jim Zubkavich know as Jim Zub. He is the Canadian writer of Skull Kickers . The art is by American artist Steven Cummings. Cummings beautiful Anime inspired art is what turns this project into a 5 Star ratings for me.
This beautiful Hard Cover is oversized and comes loaded with so many extras you might want to double dip even if he have all the issues or both trades. This collection is 300 pages long. It includes the first 10 issues of the Wayward comic plus all the multiple covers and variant covers. Also you get a ton of Character sketches and pre-production art work. Plus a 34 page lavishly illustrated text article on the back ground of the characters and Japanese Myths that this book uses. And then finally a giant five page fold out poster which came tipped in the book. This is a ton of value added bonus material.
The story for for you total newbies is about Rori Lane a girl of mixed descent. She has been staying with her father in Ireland but when the book opens she is returning to Toyko to be with her mother.
The first five issues form a small arc about Rory discovering her own powers and meeting other youths with similar supernatural powers. At the end of the first five issues a big battle takes place with results in Rori as well as another of her friends disappearing from Toyko.
The second five issues opens three months later with entirely new character named Ohara Emi a perfect Japanese School Girl . She of course also has powers. Eventually she meets some of Rori's friends. Meanwhile we find out what happened with Rori and by the end of issue ten all our Heroes have met and come together with a mission statement.
I have never bought anything that looks manga inspired but the supernatural twist to this book drew me in. I think the different powers exhibited by the characters are unique and fit together well. Overall great original idea. Artwork is fantastic and coloring is done superbly.
Do yourself a favor and give this book a try. If you are a fan of Saga, Fables, Buffy, anything supernatural, I think you will enjoy this. Very highly recommended.
