Johnny Wander is a webcomic written by Ananth Panagariya and illustrated by Yuko Ota. It is published bi-weekly.[1] The comic generally focuses on slice of life stories involving Ananth, Yuko, and their friends and family following graduation from college. However, the comic occasionally encompasses unrelated fantasy storylines. The name is meant to evoke the creator’s desire to use the comic to “wander” through whatever topics interest them at the moment.

The webcomic has been generally well-received, with reviewers calling it as a humorous and sweet comic that invites new readers to continue reading. The artwork has also been praised for its depth and quality. The first physical book collection “Johnny Wander Vol. 1: Don’t Burn the House Down” was published in 2010.
