Beginning the second TREES story, “Two Forests.” The Orkney Tree, set among the standing stones of that remote island, seems almost like it was always meant to be there. But, following the events in Svalbard, it could be nothing but a vast unexploded bomb. Across the Atlantic, there is a new mayor in New York City, who grew up under the shadow of the Manhattan Tree. And he might be the bigger threat.

    "Trees" #9 is a drastic change from the previous issues and begins a new arc that promises answers. Doctor Creasy is a strong character who definitely has the courage, drive, and complex humanity to make the future of this book brimming with promise. Warren Ellis is writing a book that has the feel of a hidden gem. A book this subtle, despite its sensational premise, is deserving of careful reading for both its written and artistic brilliance.

    I'm glad that, given the tumultuous nature of the comic industry today, Trees was able to retain its creative team in its entirety post-hiatus " but this is to be expected with a creator driven publisher such as Image. Howard continues to draw a surprising amount of emotion and detail out of both environment and cast alike, and Ellis' world grows ever larger as we start to see the potential political/social ramifications of the Trees. It took me a while to get into Trees, but it's quickly become one of the most cerebral books on shelves so long as you're in for a slow burn and a long haul. Read Full Review
