Not only do we have a trailer for Jeff Lemire and Phil Hester’s new Image series, Family Tree, but we also have a first look too.
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.
Promising to be a “Cronenbergian body horror’ Family Tree #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, November 13th. Judging by the premise for this series, I’d say that as about right.
