Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is excited to announce the May release of its newest ongoing series THE WOODS, a horror suspense title from creator and writer James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal, Red Hood and the Outlaws) and artist Michael Dialynas (Amala’s Blade, Spera). In THE WOODS, an entire high school campus with over 500 students, teachers, and staff suddenly vanishes and reappears in the middle of an alien-looking wilderness next to a towering, mysterious obelisk. Left to fend for themselves in a hostile environment, the group tries to find out where they are, why they’re there, and how to get back home.
“James’ pitch for THE WOODS knocked me out of my shoes,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We’ve been passionate about bringing this story to comics from the jump and I’m proud to say that James’ story has surpassed even our lofty expectations. James and Michael have combined teen angst with high strangeness to create a slow-burning horror story that feels like what I love about Stephen King’s work. It’s completely gripping, and is equal parts mysterious, thought-provoking, and suspenseful.”
THE WOODS #1 arrives in comic shops on May 7th with a main cover by Ramón Peréz and a 1-in-10 variant by Matthew Woodson for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAR140952. A retailer incentive cover by Paul Duffield will also be available in limited quantities.
