A Midwestern high school is transported into the middle of an alien forest. This is the story of what happens next.

It’s been three years since Bay Point Preparatory High School was mysteriously transported from suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin to an alien wilderness in the depths of space. Along the way, countless lives have been lost--teachers, students, friends, lovers . . . And more will be lost before their journey is through.

Written by James Tynion IV (Detective Comics, Memetic) and illustrated by Michael Dialynas (Gotham Academy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), The Woods: The Way Home collects the critically acclaimed final arc of the bestselling series.

James Tynion IV is a comic book writer, best known for his work on the Batman franchise for DC Comics. James' comics career began with co-writing the back-up stories on Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's character defining run on BATMAN, which would lead to his making his own name on a number of Bat-Centric series. This work would culminate in James serving as the showrunner of two consecutive weekly comic series, BATMAN ETERNAL and BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL. Recently, he has become the writer of the massive cross-over project, BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, bringing two of the most successful franchises together for the first time. The first issue was one of the best selling comic issues of 2015.

The Young Adult Science Fiction epic THE WOODS broke all records for original series at the company when it was released in 2014, and has recently been optioned for television by Universal Cable Productions. He has also penned the critical successes MEMETIC, COGNETIC and UFOLOGY for the publisher. James has also recently stepped into the shoes of one of the most iconic anti-heroes in the comics medium with the critically acclaimed relaunch of CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER with Ming Doyle and Riley Rossmo.

An alumni of Sarah Lawrence College, Tynion now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
