The battle between the yokai and the new supernatural group of Emi, Nikaido, Shirai, Ayane and Rori is just heating up. The young group is still reeling from the battle that took place in the last volume of Wayward and starts to go in a very big direction by the end of this issue.
On this week’s NonCompliant, we’re joined by guest host Jideobi (comics editor at Geeked Out Nation) and talk about the fabulous new Jem and the Holograms comic, Gotham Academy, Wayward, and Curb Stomp. Get ready to hear about girl gangs, pop stars, magical girls, and there’s even a Batman cameo.
Wayward is a comic that covers a wide spectrum of emotions. There are moments of extreme highs and moments of bottomless lows. The main character, Rori, experiences all of these moments, struggling to cope with her newfound situation. Rori has recently moved from her native Ireland to Japan to live with her mother. She enters an unknown land to be with someone that hasn’t really been a major part of her life. Though Rori is half Japanese and can speak the language, she is an outsider.
