This means a lot now that the series ended last year with its 36th issue and to be included once again among so many awesome titles.

THE WOODS WINS GLAAD MEDIA AWARD!

Really happy to announce that our comic THE WOODS got the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Comic this year!!!

Thank you all for the support with our series! <3

“The Woods,” the BOOM! Studios series by James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas, has won the 2017 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic. Presented Saturday during a ceremony held in Los Angeles, the awards honor outstanding portrayals of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.

Debuting in 2014, “The Woods” is a sci-fi drama about an entire high school — 37 students, 52 teachers and 24 staff members — that vanishes from suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin, only to reappear light years away at the edge of an ancient, primordial wilderness filled with dangers at every turn. The publisher’s bestselling comic of 2014, “The Woods” was optioned for television in 2015.

This marks the first GLAAD Media Award nomination and the first win for “The Woods.” The BOOM! Studios series “Lumberjanes” won the award in 2016.

“The Woods” edged out fellow comic book nominees “All-New X-Men,” “Black Panther,” “DC Comics Bombshells,” “Kim & Kim,” “Love Is Love,” “Lumberjanes,” “Midnighter”/”Midnighter and Apollo,” “Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!” and “Saga.”

Saturday’s ceremony will be broadcast Thursday, April 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Logo. A second GLAAD Media Awards ceremony will take place May 6 in New York City.
