The Pull List (8/27/14): Image unleashes Wayward

by

comment

Pushed as the answer to fans who miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wayward is Image’s newest series to hit the shelves of your local comic shop. This series trades the stateside backdrop for the Tokyo metro area, with Japan’s ancient monsters standing in for the vamps. But otherwise, the series promises the kind of mystery, action and creepiness your reserve box may be missing.

Wayward #1 has seen some major plugging from Image, and it’s good to see that colorist John Rauch is being touted as part of the book’s creative team, along with writer Jim Zub and penciler Steve Cummings. Colorists are too often taken for granted by publishers and comic journalists alike, but the tide seems to be turning a bit for that.

Otherwise, there’s plenty to be excited about this week. Saga has a new issue, and Charlottean Jason Latour’s Wolverine and the X-Men run continues with its eighth issue. What are you pumped about this week? Let us know.
