Family Tree is a new series launching from Image Comics in November that’s been a long time coming, announced a few years ago from Jeff Lemire and Phil Hester. And now we have a look ahead at the first few pages of the first issue…
FAMILY TREE #1 (MR)
(W) Jeff Lemire (A/CA) Phil Hester, Ryan Cody, Eric Gapstur
SERIES PREMIERE! When an eight-year-old girl literally begins to transform into a tree, her single mom, troubled brother, and possibly insane grandfather embark on a bizarre and heart-wrenching odyssey across the back roads of America in a desperate search for a way to cure her horrifying transformation before it’s too late.
But the farther they get from home, the more forces threaten to tear the family apart as fanatical cults, mercenaries, and tabloid Paparazzi close in, determined to destroy the girl-or use her for their own ends.
A new genre-defying series written by New York Times bestselling author JEFF LEMIRE (GIDEON FALLS, ASCENDER) and illustrated by acclaimed artist PHIL HESTER (Shipwreck, Green Arrow), FAMILY TREE combines mystery, action, and horror into an epic story about the lengths a mother will go to in order to keep her children safe.In Shops: Nov 13, 2019
