Reviews The Woods, Vol. 3

  • Chad
    I'm really digging this series. The beginning threw me a bit as they had just reached their kidnappers's city at the end of the last volume and now the kids are running around town like they have been there for a while. In this book, we get the history of New London, we finally get to see what the kids back at the school are up to, and things come to a head with Adrian. I have no idea where this series is headed, but I'm sure enjoying the ride th...

    I am enjoying this strange little series. We learn a lot more about this world. Some of the kids from the Woods actually make it back to the school. There is drama everywhere. The art students even want to put on a play. The first murder committed by a student happens in this one and several people die. There are plenty of mysteries to unravel in this one and what are these kids going to do. There are overtones of the book 'Lord of the Flies' goi...

    Though this new arc has taken a slightly different turn from the orginal premise of the series, I'm still digging it.This is one of the best (and gay-friendly) titles you're not reading.

    Want to see me talk about books? Check out my Youtube Channel: BexnbookxThe Woods, Volume 3: New London is a entertaining graphic novel series. With a rapidly changing scene, monsters, madness and an unpredictable plot, I am 100% invested and can't wait for more! On October 16th 2013, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from Bay Point Prep High School in suburban Milwaukee, vanished without a trace. Light years away, the 513 people...

    I was angry with the end of this chapter. It looks like they don't learn from history and attack anybody who could take them out of their misery.

    One word review: OUCH. Tynion just starts swinging at these characters (a.k.a my poor babies) and doesn’t let up. Calder isn’t mature enough to handle what’s (not) happening with him and Karen. Isaac’s heading down a dark road after his beloved Adrian’s departure and possible betrayal. Poor sweet Ben’s getting the nasty edge of Isaac’s resentment. With all the setup that had been done, it wasn’t a surprise that bad thing happened ...

    This is by far my favorite volume of the series so far. I loved this one. We're getting a lot more back story, which we all know is my very favorite. I think characters are so pivotal for a comic and I adore this group. So much more development for some of our gay characters (the rep in this is done flawlessly) and the story just keeps getting more and more interesting.
  • Scott
    Third volume in the series and it seems like I always write the same review for these....great premise, good art and somewhere buried deep in the convoluted mess of a plot is a really really really good story, I just wish Tynion would find that story instead of what he gives us.So...I enjoyed it but this could be something great and it just comes off as something so mediocre. If this was a novel I'd say that he needs to fire his editor or find a ...

    The third volume has a different feel from the first two volumes. Not a bad thing though. This volume does not start off exactly where the second left off. A bit of time went by between volume two and volume three, and I admit to being a little confused at first. There are new characters to get to know, and the plot thickens. The illustrations were a joy to look at. I just love the coloring in this. I'm really anxious about this new world. I want...
  • Cade Roach
    Getting kind of weird. Still a cool concept, and the art remains to be amazing, but this story wasn't as good as the first volume.
  • Lost in Book Land
    Welcome Back!I am very proud of myself recently! I have been doing really good in keeping with my posting goals and I am even finding a little time here and there to pre-write some of the posts which feels fabulous! I have been trying to review two graphic novels a week and when I switched to this idea a little while back my thinking was that this would allow me to keep reading faster (at the time I was in the middle of Saga which is a long-form ...

    2.5Well Volume 3 manages to sink most of the hard work done by Volumes 1 & 2 and if I hadn't already sunk my teeth into this series, I might've considered giving up. Tynion is overcomplicated the series with this volume and sadly it's quite disappointing. It's just full of setup and backstories, that aren't that interesting. Why the 2.5?It's a mess of ideas at the moment and Tynion can't seem to settle on one coherent setup. The teens are somewha...
  • Kirk
    Been a while since I picked this series back up, but it didn’t take a lot of effort to dive back in. I’m still enjoying it, and I’ll probably follow it until the volumes are no longer available through unlimited. It is the first comic series I have genuinely enjoyed in a long time.

    the characters in this series are so superb, I can't...

  • Ryan Provstgaard
    World building on a mysterious world leaves one wanting so much more!The pacing in this series is really well done. Giving just enough balance between everyones story. I really like how it is beginning to dive into the world as we know it all while revealing more and more to be left wanting. The mystery in this is still there but so far it hasn't been annoying and the sole purpose of my desire to read this. Its been heavily focused on its charact...

    I am really really liking this series!
  • Sarah
    This all feels like the syfy version of Lord of the Flies on steroids but better cause there a women.
  • Laura Wattie
    Probably one of the most underated comic books series out there. But goddamit that ending was both heart-shattering and terrifying!!
  • Renee
    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  • Shelly
    Good volume, though I was a little lost at the beginning. I guess it's been too long since I've read the 2nd volume.
  • Václav
    (3,2 of 5 for the Sheltered meets Walking dead on an alien planet)Well, I must admit one thing. The story is getting better. It gets wider, deeper, more complicated. But it also normalizes to archetypes and classic sides (the good, the bad and the rebels/stupid/losers) of the story. The LGBT+ note slowly wears off as the story got more complex (and that's good, there is no place to favour this over the story. But also the kids get more "adult" mo...

    ”This world is a weapon, seeking someone to wield it. And wield it, I shall.”This story keeps getting more and more interesting and complex. I still have hundreds of questions to be answered, but we are learning more as we go. There are loads of world building and some character development. This series is so underrated... I really want more people to find out about it. Super excited for the sequel.
  • Angelika Fuller
    Cannot get enough of this series so far. I wish each volume were longer!
  • Annette Jordan
    EpicThe excellence continues in this third volume where we learn more about New London, the town created by earlier arrivals to the mysterious planet.
  • Katrina
    Awesome series so far that I just can't stop binge reading!
  • Terry Mcginnis
    With this volume, The Woods has become somewhat convoluted, and momentum has slowed from what was built with volumes 1 and 2. Here's hoping volume 3 picks up the pace.
  • Štěpán
    This is where the first year ends and it is visible. This is the climax of the story and it makes much better sense. Everything sorta closes and presents new things that drive the story forward. The pacing is really putting me off this time. I don't mind slow stories but this still feels weird. There were paperbacks that are divided by the year so the first book has the first three trades and I believe that this illusion of cohesion is what makes...
  • Jeff Raymond
    This review covers the first five volumes of the series What happens when a school in the Midwest is zapped onto another planet entirely? That’s the conceit behind The Woods which, over five volumes so far, gives a pretty solid take on the genre of a bunch of lost students having to make their way on an unfamiliar planet. We get a lot of how the individual personalities and social hierarchy impact the survival instincts of the teens on a new pl...
  • Frank
    More background on the alien world is revealed as we learn one group per century has been transported from Earth to the planet. This adds depth to the story. However, they keep talking about the secret power of the planet without ever revealing what it is. Even when characters ask they don't get a straight story. Classic plot avoidance, which when it becomes noticeable, is not a good thing. Countless sitcoms were built on this premise, the misund...
