    Trillium is a treasure. A culmination of art and story that is as rare as the flower the series is based on. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Spencer Maxwell Feb 6, 2014

    Jeff Lemire's Trillium is a fantastic story that I am eagerly anticipating the end of. It's not for everyone, but if you want to broaden your comic book tastes I would highly recommend it. It's tragic, solemn and artistically unique. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Feb 12, 2014

    Trillium #6 is by no means perfect, but Lemire does an outstanding job of juggling plot,characters, intense emotion, and beautifully complicated art. His illustrations have their not-so-wonderful moments and the rotation, as stated, does grow tiresome. Other than that, this is a top-notch book. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Chase A Magnett Feb 6, 2014

    Trillium continues to be an outstanding series that capably uses the comic medium to reinforce the emotions and character beats of a genre-rich love story. Although this issue is slower than previous releases, its no reason to believe the finale will disappoint. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Feb 5, 2014

    Lemire's art is great, as usual. He draws awesome characters and awesome worlds, we know this. The biggest problem this comic has is its constant need to flip panels and pages upside down. What was once a neat little trick is now a chore, especially if you are reading digitally. It adds nothing to the story and just kills the momentum of the comic. It was cool in the first issue, but it's something that should have stopped a long time ago. Trillium is the kind of comic that you want to love, but it feels like it's working against you sometimes.

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Feb 10, 2014

    Yet, I've still got "Trillium" on my pull list every month. For all its flaws, this series is engaging, because it isn't afraid to let the reader be confused along with the characters. No one in the cast seems to have any answers. They're human beings who messed with the fabric of space and time, and now they're drastically out of their depth. It's tempting in science fiction to include a know-it-all character who can explain the phenomena on the page and provide an intellectual framework for the characters to problem-solve with. The characters in "Trillium" have no such sounding board. Instead, they have to feel and fumble their way toward a solution, and that approach, though sometimes frustrating, feels much truer to the actual process of human discovery. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Feb 5, 2014

    Trillium has been Lemire's most ambitious work to date and the reader really does get that just by reading it. Both the story and the storytelling are very refreshing for the comic book medium which usually isn't a very easy task. There are only two issues left in this series, so as things are coming to a close it will be interesting to see how all of this story will wrap up because the one thing you can say about Trillium is that nothing about this series is predictable.

    Though I am underwhelmed by this issue, it's still decent, and I think that the next one will provide the closure I need for questions like “why did random alternate universe happen and why does it matter?”. We'll just have to see what Lemire has in store for us next issue. Read Full Review
