    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 2, 2014

    I'm excited for the next issue and if these first three have shown us anything, it's that we're in store for even better issues as it goes on. I don't know how this story will end, but I don't see a super happy ending in store for it which only makes me more curious. We'll have to see what the creative team has in store for us next time. In the meantime this has jump to the top of my read list. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jul 1, 2014

    If you're not reading this already, let me remind you that this comic is well worth your hard-earned money. Tynion and Dialynas are doing everything possible to bring an entertaining story to readers and I feel like they're accomplishing even more than they set out to. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 8, 2014

    Though its flaws haven't all been smoothed out yet, The Woods remains a provocative character drama. James Tynion has a knack for finding the truth in these characters' voices and Michael Dialynas matches him, expressing that truth through their posture. A great final page hook, some dramatic interpersonal shifts, and a commitment to crafting characters you can get to know set this issue, and this series, apart. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jul 3, 2014

    At this point in the series, however, the absolute vagueness of Adrians persistence to head through the woods and the strange circumstances that the entire story uses as its premise are wearing thin. While the imagination of the creative team is to be commended, the story will need more than some monsters soon in order to hold an audience month to month. Hopefully the next issues delve a bit more into the circumstances of this teleportation, Clays motives or Adrians vision. All the while, Michael Dialynas and Josan Gonzalez have remained consistent. The pencil work and paneling has been good throughout and Gonzalez offers an interesting color pallet to the alien planet. As long as the story begins to offer a bit more information amidst the forward momentum, The Woods will remain a worthwhile book. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Jul 2, 2014

    The Woods #3 is going through some growing pains but the overall creative concept is still incredibly promising. This is a book thats either going to blossom or putter out in the next few issues. Id like to see where its going but at this point Im still not 100% sold. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 7, 2014

    "The Woods" #3 isn't bad, but I do feel like Tynion's cutting some corners with his characters in order to speed things up a bit. That's a bit of a shame; I'd rather see them move forward in the plot in a slightly more realistic, human manner. Keep the teenagers acting like teenagers, and I think we'll be well set.
