Trillium #1
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Jeff Lemire
Publisher: Vertigo
It’s the year 3797, and botanist Nika Temsmith is researching a strange species on a remote science station near the outermost rim of colonized space. It’s the year 1921, and renowned English explorer William Pike leads an expedition into the dense jungles of Peru in search of the fabled “Lost Temple of the Incas,” an elusive sanctuary said to have strange healing properties. Two disparate souls separated by thousands of years and hundreds of millions of miles. Yet they will fall in love and, as a result, bring about the end of the universe. Even though reality is unraveling all around them, nothing can pull them apart. This isn’t just a love story; It’s the LAST love story ever told.

Rating: ★★★★☆

    One benefit of reading Trillium in the hard copy as opposed to the digital one that Zach reviewed is that it is a flipbook – The ‘end’ of the issue is in the middle, with each chapter starting at the front/back. Very cool. I like things that make reading an actual comic more interesting, like what Matt Kindt does with Mind MGMT

        It is one of the more interesting comic reading experiences I’ve had this year. It doesn’t really translate well to digital unfortunately. I guess comixology could tweak guided view to follow it, or something like that.

    Another great show!
    And the comment about Zach in a bikini got me thinking… That would be a heck of a gift to the gold members…. I’d use it as a desktop image. Just sayin’.
