WAYWARD is the new series from Image Comics, Toronto’s-own Jim Zub, and Yokohama-based artist Steven Cummings! Set in Tokyo, Japan, the series focuses on a young woman new to Tokyo, trying to reconnect with her mother and, you know, fighting traditional Japanese monsters and demons and stuff. WAYWARD #1 debuts everywhere on Wednesday, August 27th…
But if you’re in TORONTO!? The Beguiling is throwing a big ‘ole party to celebrate, at Toronto’s GUU SAKABAR (our favourite Japanese pub–or Izakaya), and we’d love for you to come out! The event will be on release-day, Wednesday August 27th, from 6pm-8pm. The event is free to attend and there’ll even be Japanese snacks on hand!
Wayward #1 will be available for sale at the event, including all four of the standard covers and ALL of the rare/exclusive variants too! It’ll probably be the only place in the world to get every variant of Wayward #1 in one place! Also available, the rare Japanese-doujinshi edition of Wayward #1, and a special postcard set!
Wayward writer Jim Zub will be on hand at the event, as will variant cover artists Kalman Andrasofszky, Alina Urusov, Adam Warren, & Chip Zdarsky! Zub will be making a short presentation at 7pm too, but the part starts at 6pm. Come in, grab a beer (or other refreshment) with the writer and artists, pick up your copy of Wayward #1, and sample some of the great food available at Guu!
Hope to see you this Wednesday night!
