With everything they've done in comics, it's a wonder that Jeff Lemire and Jock have never teamed up before. The two have collaborated for Snow Angels, a 10-part limited series telling an epic science fiction adventure story set in a brutal near future where the world is covered in ice.

Snow Angels #1 debuts on February 16th, 2021 as part of ComiXology Originals. This means it will be available to read at no additional cost for members of Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and ComiXology Unlimited. It will also be available for purchase through Amazon Kindle and ComiXology.

In coordination with ComiXology, Amazon Original Stories is releasing Jeff Lemire's first prose short story, also called Snow Angels, which introduces the world of this comic series. Featuring cover art by Jock, this serves as a prologue to the comics and can also be read as a stand-alone coming-of-age sci-fi story. This will be available for free to members of Amazon Prime and Kindle Unlimited in ebook and digital audio formats beginning on February 16th.

In Snow Angels, Milliken and Mae have never left The Trench—it’s all they’ve ever known. They were born in The Trench, and they’ll die there, just like all their people do. The two girls, eight and eleven, are a part of The Trenchfolk, a sprawling settlement of people living inside the massive ice walls of a vast, seemingly endless frozen trench carved into the surface of an otherwise icy wasteland. The Trenchfolk survive in this hostile world by following The Three Testaments of The Trench—golden rules repeated like a mantra from birth to death…
Milli and Mae don’t really know how their people came to live here. No one does, not even their wise and gentle father. On Milliken’s twelfth birthday, their father takes the two girls on an overnight skate down the trench — a coming-of-age ritual to teach them how to fish the frozen river, how to hunt the wild Trenchdogs that wander its frigid banks, and how to give proper thanks to their frozen Gods — The Colden Ones. It’s the trip of a lifetime until the girls push beyond the borders of their humble land and awaken the Trench’s deadly defender…The Snowman!

Snow Angels has been gestating in my notebooks for over a decade and it’s really rewarding to see Milli and Mae finally come to vibrant life with Jock’s kinetic and emotive artwork,” says Lemire. “Jock and Will and I have been discussing this book for years and now The Trench finally lives! Really excited to share this story with readers and for them to fall into this world we are creating.”
“Jeff had me hooked from the minute he told me about Snow Angels and the story of Millie and Mae,” says Jock. “The mix of personal drama and the unique setting of The Trench and the world they live in make it a dream to draw. It’s been a long time gestating so I’m thrilled to see it find it’s home with comiXology and released into the world.”

“Having had the great fortune to work with both of these talented creators separately, it’s a real thrill for me to finally see them working together!” says editor Will Dennis. “They had an instant chemistry and the work they are doing is some of the best of their storied careers. Fans will be blown away by this project!"
Snow Angels is an action-packed story of survival, loss, redemption, and sisterhood,” said comiXology Head of Content, Chip Mosher. “It’s a stunning comic by two of the most imaginative comic book creators of all time and it is a joy to read.”
