Jeff Lemire and Phil Hester Explore the Horror of turning into a Tree in The Family Tree

Image Comics has announced an all-new, ongoing genre-defying series by New York Times bestselling author Jeff Lemire and critically-acclaimed artist Phil HesterThe Family Tree, which will launch this November. 

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. 

The Family Tree combines mystery, action, and Cronenbergian body horror into an epic story about the lengths a mother will go to keep her children safe in the face of an increasingly unstable world and unspeakable horrors.

The Family Tree #1 (Diamond Code SEP190021) will hit stores on Wednesday, November 13.
