Wool as you’ve never read it before: The New York Times bestselling novel is now told in graphic novel format. This contemporary dystopian classic—hailed by Justin Cronin, New York Times bestselling author of The Passage, as “an epic feat of imagination”—will captivate readers both familiar and new.
This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

While this serialized graphic novel doesn’t have any reviews because it hasn’t been released yet, the original WOOL novel has an average review rating of 4.5/5 stars and has spawned a whole series and a motion picture, currently in development. This serialized graphic novel edition is priced at just $4.99 during the pre-order period (that price includes every episode in the serial, not just the first episode), and that’s a bargain price for a graphic novel of this caliber.
