For those of you who are looking for something to binge, this comic is a great choice. In fact, that’s how I started reading it, which makes a lot of sense why I prefer to read it in trade fashion as opposed to monthly. The content is usually incredibly engaging and James Tynion IV knows how to write a script. However, one issue is usually not enough and it just feels better to read a chunk at a time.
If you haven’t read any of The Woods yet, you want to stop reading to avoid mild spoilers. Here’s what the fourth volume is all about…
“…the fourth story arc begins in the wake of the election, and the results have turned the students against their newfound allies. As Karen learns more about the Aboriginal people and their control over the power of the Woods, she must choose between her friends and her destiny.”
The Woods Vol. 4: Movie Night collects issues #13-16, and will release this Wednesday. Check out the preview below:
