TRILLIUM #1(W/A) Jeff Lemire
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.
Trillium is an 8-issue series that combines rich historical adventure and mind-bending science fiction into a sprawling, unconventional love story by Jeff Lemire (SWEET TOOTH, CONSTANTINE, ANIMAL MAN).
This amazing miniseries kicks off with 28-pages of story in a flip-book with two covers and two separate but connected stories!
Jeff Lemire dips back into creator owned territory to bring you the most epic of long distance relationships to ever be conceived on the comic book page! While the solicitation reads much like Darren Aronofsky's stunningly gorgeous "Fountain", I'm confident in Lemire's ability to blend the weirdly surreal with the intimate emotions and thoughts of his characters that linger in our hearts long past the final panel.
