The Perfect New Series For Wayward Buffy Fans

Wayward

Writer Jim Zub (SKULLKICKERS, Samurai Jack) teams up with penciler Steve Cummings (Legends of the Dark Knight, Deadshot) and color artist John Rauch (INVINCIBLE) to create a Buffy the Vampire Slayer for a new generation in WAYWARD, coming from Image Comics in August.

Rori Lane is an outsider by nature, but moving to Tokyo to live with her single Mom has only exacerbated her weirdness. She’s feeling out of sorts, worried about fitting in and, as if that wasn’t enough, strange things are beginning to happen. Glowing symbols and patterns are starting to appear before her eyes… and she’s the only one who seems to notice.

“Wayward is a coming-of-age story filled with mystery and emotion. It’s also an ass-kicking joy ride with teenagers beating the hell out of Japanese mythological monsters,” said Zub. “Steve and I built this series from the ground up to play to both our strengths. I can’t wait for people to see what we have planned.”

In WAYWARD a group of teens living in Tokyo find a common bond in manifesting strange, supernatural abilities. As they begin to unravel the mystery behind their powers and their common source they’re drawn into a war with the vestiges of Japan’s monstrous mythic past.

WAYWARD #1 arrives in stores on 8/27, and will be available for $3.50 with special variant covers by Alina Urusov (Birds of Prey), Jeff “Chamba” Cruz (Street Fighter), and Adam Warren (Empowered).

Image Comics First Look: Early Artwork From RISE OF THE MAGI

Rise-of-the-Magi-0-FCBD-2014_FINAL

The world as we know it is at risk because the world we don’t see—the one that makes ours possible—is on the brink of destruction. From Top Cow Productions and featuring writing and interior art by Image Comics founder and partner Marc Silvestri (THE DARKNESS, WITCHBLADE, CYBER FORCE) alongside art by Sumeyye Kesgin, comes a new ongoing fantasy adventure series.

“The unfamiliar, the uncomfortable, and the things that scare us are what make us grow as people,” said Silvestri. “It’s safe then to say that in Rise of the Magi, Asa [series protagonist] and a cast of characters both strange and familiar, will be doing a lot of growing.”

The Magi are awake and they are legion, and only seven magicians, sorcerers, thieves, and killers can stop them. But as Asa will soon find out that there truly is no honor among thieves.

The adventure begins in RISE OF THE MAGI #1 this June. Cover A with art by Marc Silvestri can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR140483. Cover B with art by Stjepan Sejic can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR140484. Cover C with art by Sumeyye Kesgin can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR140485. Cover D (retail incentive) with art by Marc Silvestri will be available to pre-order with Diamond Code MAR140486.
