It took them 7 turbulent years that tested their resolve, strained their friendships, and nearly burned down their parents house. They completed every scene except one… the airplane scene. 33 years later, the friends reunite to finally finish the childhood dream. But is it easier to film a whole movie as kids… or one scene as adults?
MAGIC AND MYTH UNLEASHED ON THE STREETS OF MODERN JAPAN IN WAYWARD
First volume of hit series in stores in March
“Wayward by the great Jim Zub is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
Writer Jim Zub (SKULLKICKERS, Samurai Jack) and artist Steven Cummings (Legends of the Dark Knight, Deadshot) spin enchantment and mystery together in a fantasy story about one girl’s battle against the mythological creatures everyday mortals fail to see.

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.
It doesn’t seem like that very long ago at all that DC Comics announced their plans to relaunch every single title in their comic book line. Despite those feelings, however, the New 52 is, in fact, ending, and while we took a look back at the best books that were part of the initial launch of the moniker, this week we’re looking at those New 52 launch titles that should have lasted, but just didn’t finish the race. DC threw its best and brightest characters and talent at readers, and while a lot of it ended up making it all the way to the New 52’s end, a few brilliant stars burned out way sooner than we wanted them to. So, without further ado, we love good writing, adore quality artwork, and are really going to miss that logo, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: The “Worst” of the New 52.
