“Wayward” Comic To Become A TV Series

Manga Entertainment has acquired the film and TV rights to Jim Zub’s ongoing action-drama comic series “Wayward” with plans to develop the property for television.

Currently deciding between being either a Japanese animated or live action series, the modern Tokyo-set tale follows Yokai, Japanese creatures and spirits of legend that battle against teenagers permeated with newfound supernatural power. The story blends Japanese and Celtic mythology.

Zub and illustrator Steven Cummings will act as creative consultants on the project, including development of the initial story treatment along with character and creature designs.
