Art Spotlight on TRILLIUM #1 by Jeff Lemire

By Pamela Mullin Horvath Friday, July 12th, 2013

Jeff Lemire (SWEET TOOTH, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, GREEN ARROW, ANIMAL MAN) has a knack for emotional comic book storytelling. He returns to Vertigo as the writer/illustrator of not just any love story; it's the LAST love story ever told.

TRILLIUM combines rich historical adventure and mind-bending science fiction into a sprawling, unconventional love story. This amazing miniseries begins as a flip-book with two covers and two separate but connected stories!

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.

Lemire has said TRILLIUM is "the most ambitious project I've ever attempted."
