Third Eye Faithful: we love good comics. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning. It’s what makes us work so hard to bring you the best comic shop experience around. And, it’s what makes us love what we do for a living.

So, when something special comes along, something so unique, and so darn compelling, that it grabs a hold of us and doesn’t let go — then we have to do something big for it.

And, Wayward, is definitely something special. Much like we got a little buzzing in the back of our head, a little turn in our guts, a little crackle of electricity in our fingertips, when we first laid eyes on Brian K. Vaughan’s SAGA, we’re feeling, hearing, and sensing the same kind of raw comic book magic with WAYWARD.

In other words: this is going to be one of the biggest IMAGE Comics titles to release this year, without a doubt, and we are stoked, honored, and absolutely positively flattered to be hosting series writer JIM ZUB, and WAYWARD Third Eye cover artist CHIP ZDARSKY, as guests to help us kick it off in true Third Eye Fashion!

So, what’s WAYWARD all about?

This incredible new ongoing series that will appeal to fans of comics like SAGA, television like Joss Whedon’s BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, and more, is a must-read take on the modern fantasy genre.

It’s like Buffy the Vampire Slayer.. for a new generation.

Rori Lane is trying to start a new life when she reunites with her mother in Japan, but ancient creatures lurking in the shadows of Tokyo sense something hidden deep within her, threatening everything she holds dear.

Can Rori unlock the secrets of her power before it’s too late? Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Samurai Jack, Pathfinder, Figment), Steve Cummings, and John Rauch team up to create an all-new, ongoing Image supernatural spectacle that combines the camaraderie and emotion of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER with the action, mystery, and occult awesomeness of HELLBOY.

Folks: do not sleep on this book. It WILL be one of the hottest IMAGE books of the Fall. Trust us!
