The Pull List (5/28/14): Ellis unleashes Trees

Posted By on Wed, May 28, 2014 at 10:55 AM

I'll usually pick up any new comic from writer Warren Ellis, even when the preview blurbs are vague. Case in point: Trees, a series that debuts today. No promotional art or preview pages have provided clarity to exactly what we can expect from the book, but as usual, just a broad stroke of a concept puts an Ellis book at the top of anticipated releases. Here's what Image is offering us:

"Ten years after they landed. All over the world. And they did nothing, standing on the surface of the Earth like trees, exerting their silent pressure on the world, as if there were no-one here and nothing 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."

Good enough for me. Also: Look out for the second issue of Southern Bastards, which features the art of Charlottean Jason Latour. Latour was recently featured in an issue of Creative Loafing. You can find that cover story here.

Now, onward to the other new books...
