About the Author
James Tynion IV got his start in the pages of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s acclaimed run on Batman at DC Comics in early 2012, where he co-wrote the backup stories for the best-selling Court of Owls and Death of the Family storylines. He has since written stories for Detective Comics, as well as writing the ongoing series Talon, and Red Hood and the Outlaws. He lives and writes in New York City, and is consistently amazed that people are actually letting him work on comic books professionally. He alternates between taking in the most grisly horror media he can get his hands on, and trying not to get choked up while listening to musical theater soundtracks. You can find him on Twitter @JamesTheFourth, or on his Tumblr. Michael Dialynas is an Athens, Greece based artist who has illustrated the worlds of AMALA'S BLADE, SPERA, SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN and currently THE WOODS for Boom! Studios.

Top Customer Reviews
There isn't much in this book about the group that remained at the school. I am a little disappointed because of the way the first book ended. The fallout from that should definitely have been addressed some more. In its place we get a wonderful glimpse into the past of the students.
Interjected throughout the book are snippets of events one year prior to the abduction. This fleshes out who the students are, how they know each other, and gives some explanation for their actions to this point. It all takes place on the night that the school theater group is putting on a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Meanwhile, the group in the woods needs to deal with a confrontation with the "locals". They are split up at this point so there is some jumping back and forth between these groups and the events of the past. This storytelling format carries over from the first volume. The art is on par with the first book. There isn't too much that feels new though. I would like to see some new creatures and an in depth exploration of the world, but this books gives a good background on the characters that was sorely needed.
Unfortunately, in this volume we leave the school itself behind entirely, and with arguably how little gets done narrative-wise, the four-issue format of the trades may be the collected book's biggest shortcoming. The complex setting took a moment to recall, and by the time I was back on page, the volume was over. This book is great, but the price-tags and format are getting me down, just the tiniest bit.
