And you know how most graphic novels switch to a worse artist after the first graphic novel? This one doesn't! The great art continues throughout the second graphic novel, too. Thank you!
The story is pretty mediocre and typical. Outcast, teenage moves. Teenager discovers she has powers. Monsters. Meets fellow superpowered teens. Monsters. Traumatic event. Monsters. No new trails blazed here and I walked away nit caring to read anymore of the story. The art is what earns the two stars here. Nothing special about the art but it doesn't mess anything up either.
Now put this story in Japan, steep it in Japanese culture and mythology, add in great pencils and inks and colors and lettering, and just for good measure have that Jim Zub guy from skullkickers to write it.
This is seriously my favorite ongoing comic. Call me weird, but I prefer it to Saga.
Some people may not like that the story attempts to provide some backstory to the characters in lieu of them just running around clobbering bad guys. There is plenty of clobbering, however there is also an attempt to make the characters seem like people And not the sum of their abilities.
I normally do not review but I wish I had read this review before I decided to buy this one.
I ordered this with Copperhead and Rat Queens volume 1 and 2(amazing) and this one was by far the worst.
I did not like the art style or story, at all.
It just wasn't interesting to me, I didn't care what happened on the next page and I sure as hell don't care what happens in the next volume.
I just don't want people to buy this based on all the 5 and 4 star reviews(like I did).
Some of my favorites, and ones I recommend, are Invincible, Walking Dead, Saga, Luther Strode, Rat Queens vol 1 and 2(skip vol 3, its so bad...), and Fables.
The brilliant artwork is Wayward's only saving grace. I hope a new writer takes over.

The story is above par and the dialogue is decent.
But the art...I dig on this art.
