Warren Ellis is certainly no stranger to writing series that are critically lauded and generally popular with readers. His latest teams him up with Jason Howard and the first volume of that collaboration will hit stores in February in Trees, Vol.1. Trees is set in an uncertain future, ten years after they landed. All over the world. Standing on the surface of the Earth like trees, exerting their silent pressure on the world, as if the planet was uninhabited and nothing was under foot. Ten years since we learned that there is intelligent life in the universe, but that they did not recognize us as intelligent or alive.
"I wrote Trees for Jason, because nobody understood how brilliant a comics artist he is,” said Ellis. “And I wrote it for me, because I was interested in how the massive and strange things in our lives bend the world around them and make our lives weird and dangerous while we desperately try to pretend that everything is normal."
Trees Vol. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-63215-270-1) hits shelves on February 11 and will be available for $14.99. It can be pre-ordered by retailers from Diamond Book Distributors with Diamond Code DEC140696. Full press release below.
