    The Woods #9 offers compelling character drama and a dramatic cinematic change for the series. What it lacks in outright action it more than makes up for in setting the table for the next major set piece. The payoff for much of this issue will be seen in the installments that follow making it a hard comic to judge, however, readers that have found Tynions snappy dialogue compelling and Dialynas art invigorating will continue to enjoy a hearty dose of both this week. Part of me wonders how much more respect this series would garner simply by being published by Image Comics instead of BOOM! Studios, or is it just me? And if my suspicion is correct, what does that say about us as the members of this community? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jan 15, 2015

    For such a mellow issue, Tynion and co. knock it out of the park. The Woods has been great since it started, but it feels like this development has brought out what's best about it without really abandoning anything. The characters feel stronger for their attempts at normalcy and the too-good-to-be-true quality of New London is engaging both for the tension it creates and the desire to learn more about the settlement. The art is as good as ever and works well in concert with Tynion's writing. It's odd to say it, but it almost feels like Tynion was waiting to get here, happily fleshing out the early stories but tapping his foot quicker and quicker with anticipation. If so I'd say he was right to, this feels like a story he wants to tell and I think the result is one that the fans will want to read. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 7, 2015

    Overall this issue is really good. It's solid and lays the foundation for the next arc just like it's done before. The landscape has changed for sure, but in a way the story takes too large of a step forward without the reader. Maybe if there were Saga like gaps in the release schedule, then it would work, but this team is cranking it out. It's good, but not perfect" but the art is. I could stare at the art all damn day and so I'll definitely not be quitting this series any time soon. Read Full Review
