I knew two things going into Warren Ellis’ new series Trees: 1) It’s written by Warren Ellis, and 2) It’s called Trees. That was enough for me. And it’s starting off slow, but the premise is good and the characters seem deep and human enough to be the drive of the story. Too often with sci-fi tinged stories, the premise IS the story and the people are just there to get to the reveals. Ellis is an amazing idea man who writes with an overarching sense of style nearly unmatched in comics, so even with the slow start I am unstoppably excited to see where this book is in a year.
