BODY HORROR GETS BOTANICAL IN THE FAMILY TREE

Image Comics has announced The Family Tree, an ongoing genre-defying series from writer Jeff Lemire and artist Phil Hester, set to launch in November. It tells the tale of a young girl who turns into a tree. There's obviously a bit more to it than that.

In The Family Tree, an eight-year-old girl literally begins to transform into a tree, her single mom, troubled brother, and possibly insane grandfather, embark on a bizarre and heart-wrenching odyssey across the back roads of America in a desperate search for a cure to her horrifying transformation—before it’s too late.

The farther they get from home, the more forces threaten to tear the family apart as fanatical cults, mercenaries, and tabloid Paparazzi close in, determined to destroy the girl or use her for their own ends. 

"Family Tree has been a story that has been percolating for a long time,” said Lemire. “In a lot of ways it’s a return to the tone, and many of the themes, I explored with my Animal Man run; a look at the many horrors that can threaten to tear a family apart, and the bonds that keep them together in the face of unspeakable events.”

Hester added: "I believe The Family Tree fit pretty squarely into both my and Jeff's body of work in that it's undeniably weird, sometimes grotesque, and occasionally violent. But underneath it all is the beating heart of a family that finds a way to stay a family under the most extreme circumstances."

The Family Tree #1 is set for release on November 13th, 2019.
