The Woods is a new series by James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas. It’s the creepy tale of a group high school students and teachers that vanish from our world and end up light years away in a primordial forest.
Things we liked
- the art it had an Archie comics feel that you don’t see all the time
- a character for everyone
- a whiny kid gets killed right off the bat (we might be a little dark)
- the bat creature (referred to as Doctor Robot in Issue 2)
Things we didn’t like
- not much
Random things that caught our attention (for better or worse)
- how many of us can’t wait for the death of Adrian (yes, we’re grim)
Overall it was a fun read. Since there are so many characters, it seemed easy to identify with at least one. It does have a high school power struggle dynamic to it which some of us liked more than others. We’re fairly certain it’s all real and not a dream but only time will tell.
