The Woods #1 a blend of Stephen King’s ‘The Mist’ and ‘The Faculty’

7 May 2014 11:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Woods #1

Writer: James Tynion IV

Artist: Michael Dialynas

Colorist: Josan Gonzalez

Letterer: Ed Dukeshire

Editor: Eric Harburn

Publisher: Boom! Studios

“Um…Mr. Beaumont, something very strange is happening…”

Set in Bay Point Preparatory High School in suburban Milwaukee, Woods pays homage to several genre faves, notably Sheltered, and Revival. Fans of James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal, Red Hood and The Outlaws) will be eager to read his first original comic series, but they might also be somewhat letdown. The best way to describe the first issue is to imagine a blend of Stephen King’s The Mist and The Faculty (written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Robert Rodriguez), only minus the dark comedy and social commentary.

Set mostly in and around one location in a small-town, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff vanish without a trace. Not much is revealed here, but Woods does offer swarms of mutant-like bats ripping apart the student body. »
