Wayward issue 3 does not waste any time on where it previously left off. When Rori’s mother hurries off to work, she does her normal morning routine and goes to class. After she does her mundane school schedule, Rori and her new magical friend Shirai get together and try to make sense of what is happening to them. Then, Rori’s powers mysteriously activates again and leads her to another mini adventure. She bumps into Ayane once again and thats when things are starting to come together.
Jim Zub’s writing in this issue does not dissappoint! How he incorporates the flow of the story in this issue is very easy to keep up, there no dry points what so ever, and it keeps the reader’s attention very well. One of the best parts about this issue is the argument the group has amongst themselves. The characters are not on the same page and different points were being made. With all of these things happening, one could easily get confused. But Jim craftfully keeps the flow at a steady pace (especially the ending!)
The art by Steve Cummings once again is astounding. Not only the characters and their facial expressions were skillfully done, but the landscapes and area settings are out of this world! Steve has set a full balance of what the reader will see. From page 1 to the end of the book, the whole artistic experience will leave a person satisfied.
It is impossible for me to give this series any more praise than I am . The story Jim Zub has introduced is coming along at a great pace, mixed with the amazing art style Steve Cummings makes it a force to be reckoned with. Wayward will be getting more and more interesting in the future but for now, if you are not reading this book, you are missing out on an amazing story with wonderful art.
