Launching this May, a new science fiction comics serial by myself and Jason Howard, entitled TREES, will be published by Image Comics.
(If longtime readers were wondering what happened to the SCATTERLANDS experiment? We got involved with this instead. Basically, we had so much fun doing SCATTERLANDS that we wondered what a full series together would look like, and then it took over.)
I’m working on the end of issue 4 right now, while Jason has just wrapped issue 3. We expect to have six issues in the can by the end of May, when issue 1 is published. Final order cut-off for comics stores on issue 1 is May 5.
All contact and PR is being handled through Image Comics at this time. Here’s their contacts page.
Below, the solicitation text for issue 1.
Ten years after they landed. All over the world. And they did nothing, standing on the surface of the Earth like trees, exerting their silent pressure on the world, as if there were no-one here and nothing under foot. Ten years since we learned that there is intelligent life in the universe, but that they did not recognise us as intelligent or alive.
