James Tynion IV and Michael DialynasThe Woodspublished by Boom Studios, is a sort of sci-fi high school version of Lord of the Flies or Lost. A group of students and teachers disappear from Earth and end up in a mysterious forest world light years away. The 36-issue series has been planned as three volumes of 12 issues each, which means issue #13 is the perfect point for new readers to jump on board and give it a try.

Leading into issue #13, the group has been stranded for a year and learned a lot about the environment they're trapped in --- but it's safe to say that there are still a lot of stories to be told. Check out the preview below.
