Image Comics release a teaser trailer for Jeff Lemire and Phil Hester's "Family Tree"
Jeff Lemire and Phil Hester.
As the joke goes, that’s the tweet.
The insanely talented pair will be launching a new project together this November, titled Family Tree, and Image Comics have released a teaser video for the horror series. It’s about a girl who starts turning into a tree, which in other hands might be whimsical and fun, but from the guy who writes Gideon Falls? That’s just creepy.
And then there’s Hester, whose simple and pleasing aesthetic make that horrifying concept that much creepier in how… not creepy it looks. Check out the video and details below, along with a first look at the first issue.
FAMILY TREE TRAILER DROPS FOR NEW HORROR SERIES BY JEFF LEMIRE & PHIL HESTER
PORTLAND, Ore. 10/17/2019 — A teaser trailer for the forthcoming Family Tree—by New York Times
bestselling author Jeff Lemire (Gideon Falls, Ascender) and acclaimed artist Phil Hester (Shipwreck, Green Arrow)—showcasing interior pages, has dropped in anticipation of the Wednesday, November 13 launch date. The new ongoing body horror/adventure series is perfect for fans of Uzumaki, Gideon Falls, and Bird Box.
In Family Tree, 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.
The Family Tree combines mystery, action, and Cronenbergian body horror into an epic story about the lengths a mother will go to keep her children safe in the face of an increasingly unstable world and unspeakable horrors.
The Family Tree #1 (Diamond Code SEP190021) will hit stores on Wednesday, November 13. It can be pre-ordered at comic book shops or purchased across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
