Family Tree #6
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Phil Hester
Cover Art: Phil Hester
It has been a long time since I saw issue number five of this Image Comics comic. Of course, that has been because of the way the world has been over the last few months. However, Family Tree picks right up and it does not take very before I was right back into the story.
This is such a quality comic and this issue focuses deeply on Grandpa Judd and his son. We also meet a woman who, as Grandpa Judd says, is the “Big Shot, the head of the Arborists.
The issue is divided into sections, which includes when Darcy revealed to his father his infection with the Sylvan Disease, and an escape attempt from Judd.
This felt like a very effective book to jump back into the story so it works after the break of the pandemic. This comic has been so good from the start and it has developed the story & plot slowly and with a great pace. I also find the art from Phil Hester perfect for this book. It is the most interesting looking book. The coloring is beautiful as well.
