THE WOODS VOL 1

BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) James Tynion IV
(A/CA) Michael Dialynas

As fans of James Tynion IV's work in the Batman universe (BATMAN ETERNAL, RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS), we were eager to publish his first original comic series. THE WOODS gives us that same eerie, small-town horror feel we get whenever we read a Stephen King novel.

James Tynion IV is a former protege of BATMAN writer Scott Snyder, so you know he's learned a lot about how to craft a compelling tale. If you're fan of teen conspiracy comics like Morning Glories, Sheltered, and Revival, you'll immediately be sucked into THE WOODS.

On October 16, 2013, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from Bay Point Preparatory High School in suburban Milwaukee, WI vanished without a trace. Countless light years away, far outside the bounds of the charted universe, 513 people find themselves in the middle of an ancient, primordial wilderness. Where are they? Why are they there? The answers will prove stranger than anyone could possibly imagine. Collects issues #1-4 of the critically acclaimed series.

On October 16, 2013, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from Bay Point Preparatory High School in suburban Milwaukee, WI vanished without a trace, finding themselves countless light years away in the middle of an ancient, primordial wilderness. One year prior, the school held its first rendition of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," on a night that would prove fateful to both the students and faculty, as their lives crossed paths in an almost premonitory way, seeding the various horrors to come. Created and written by James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal) and illustrated by Michael Dialynas (Amala's Blade), "The Swarm" collects the critically acclaimed second arc (issues #5-8) of the bestselling series.
