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.

The ever dependable Jeff Lemire presents an apocalypse story that manages to feel fresh out of the gate, and unlike a whole lot of Image #1's, this book isn't taking four issues to explain the beginning of the end of the world. The art by Phil Hester may resemble Mike Mignola on meth, but it certainly doesn't detract from the basic tale of a parent faced with an absolutely insane problem. Highly recommended for fans of Groot, those who choose real over artificial, and druids.
