    With Maria gone and Karen stuck between a rock and a hard place all hope seems lost… except that Isaac's conscious and his eyes are glowing with crazy Adrian energy so… who knows what's going to happen next!With every new issue this series continues to surprise. Seriously, some of the stuff that's happened in the last few issues is just absolutely chilling. But I love it. It makes me sad sometimes. But I still love it. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Reid Carter Jan 10, 2016

    Gorgeous, horrific art from Michael Dialynas and Josan Gonzalez is the perfect complement for the narrative. The stark difference between the mundane flashbacks and the chaos of The Woods' planet has long been an element of the series, but as the planet's long simmering threats explode into violence it only makes the mundanity that much more affecting. Panel after panel is striking and vicious, and if the series can keep up this level of quality, the finale could make what has already been a strong series into one that's legendary.

    The Woods #19 reminds us just why this is a must read comic, with the shocking twists and brutal action being captivating to say the least. The creative team also give us a lot of depth, with the emotional twists within the narrative setting up the next issue nicely. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jan 13, 2016

    Though there are a couple of weaker panels, possibly even a significant one, and the prime story will hit or miss depending on the reader, this remains a really solid issue of a great series. Tynion and Dialynas are cashing in the emotional attachment they've sown for these characters and you can really feel Tynion stepping fully into his element as plotlines from as far back as the series' inception come into play. It is not the best issue of this series, but there are only a few that can match it for emotional investment, subtle plot development, or sheer force of tone. Read Full Review

    The monster art is disgusting in a good way. The art makes these creatures things that would slink out of your darkest nightmares. Read Full Review
