It’s been over one year since the students, teacher, and additional staff of Bay Point Preparatory High School in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin were suddenly transported countless light years away to the middle of an ancient, primordial wilderness. Despite the chaos of their first year, the students have begun to build a life in this new world, a burgeoning society out of the ruins of their past. But mysterious forces are conspiring to bring it all crashing down... Written by James Tynion IV (Detective Comics, Memetic) and illustrated by Michael Dialynas (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles),The Woods Yearbook Edition Book Two collects issues #13-24 of the critically-acclaimed series Scott Snyder (Batman) calls a “dark, epic read.”
