    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Nov 9, 2013

    I did a Creator's Month piece on Lemire for a good reason. Every original series he does is something VERY special that people should pay attention to and Trillium is no exception. This was my favorite issue in the series so far and I can't wait to get my hands on the next to get some answers! What's so special about the Trillium plants? Are Nika and William going to survive the blast? What's going to happen with the natives? Lemire has woven a beautiful web of questions and I can't wait to see the beautiful tapestry that is Trillium when it's finished! Read Full Review

    Trillium continues to show what Lemire is capable of when left to his own devices and prove it to be the most innovative comic being published under the prestigious Vertigo banner. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Nov 7, 2013

    Being both the artist and the writer gives Lemire supreme control over his story, which allows him to create visual parallels, add nuances to the characters' behavior, and pace it to perfection in a way only the best artist/writer duos are able to achieve. For a story about the possible end of the human race, it is given an extra layer of depressing sadness that this is only a 10-issue mini-series. We aren't even at the halfway point yet, but Trillium is looking to be one of the biggest hits of Lemire's already glowing career. Read Full Review

    My only complaint, which is not really much of a complaint, is that I understand very little of what is going on under the narrative. It is a tightly concealed plot which will take it's time to unravel. Find it, Read it. Read Full Review

    Jeff Lemire has talent he hasn’t even tapped yet. Trillium is another step forward in his becoming one of the most original storytellers around. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Nov 6, 2013

    Trillium #4 was yet another great issue in this astonishing, wild, and fresh story. There were some huge events and, while the story was moved forward, the mystery deepened again! The cliffhanger ending will surely leave readers guessing what will come next. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Nov 8, 2013

    If you are on the fence about this series, I suggest you trade wait. I have a feeling this will read better when totally complete. I think this not as good as some of Lemire's other work but it is not bad. Very middle of the road to me. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Nov 11, 2013

    "Trillium" has some intriguing ideas, and issue number four has a dramatic turn worthy of continued reading, but on the whole the story and visuals are not well matched and hold one another back. Read Full Review
