Plant a Tree, Change the World

Sick of looking out your window at a frigid wintry wasteland? Want some different scenery to brighten your spirits and capture your imagination? You're in luck, because there's a brave new world just waiting in the newest offering from Warren Ellis: the comic series Trees. I've been intrigued since the first strange issue, and now that the initial arc has swung closed, I can definitely predict that this comic is going to be one of my all-time favorites.
Illustrated by Jason Howard, the first volume of this fresh new sci-fi vision of the world has just recently been collected, and the story it holds is delightfully intriguing. The premise is a familiar one: alien invasion. However, the Earth has never seen an invasion quite like this before. Giant alien pillars land all over the world, many causing damage when they touch-down -- but none of them firing a shot. There are no flying saucers, no demands for surrender, no lasers or bombs, no alien troops marching through our streets. There are only the Trees, impregnable and silent, looming over humanity as if we were no more than ants. The Trees came to our world but they did not, it seems, come for us.
And so life goes on in the shadows of the Trees. Humanity comes to accept, and in a way almost forget, the presence of these alien monoliths as the years pass. The Trees become just another part of life, become normal. But they cast a long shadow, and the world is changed by their presence. Some societies crumble under the weight, while others flourish. The comic paints a picture of the world under the Trees and in the process introduces us to a fascinating cast of characters, every one of them captivating and singular enough to hold their own story but in this tale each person is just a slice of the whole of this invaded world.
Floodwaters turn New York into a gang-state. Flowers grow in an arctic wasteland. Resources flourish in Africa. Crime and politics have taken root in the streets of Brazil. Art and self-expression find free-reign in China. No matter how normal life has come to seem, everything -- and everyone -- touched by the Trees has been affected by this invasion, whether they know it or not. It has been ten years since the Trees came to Earth, and things have changed...and now as the first volume of this story comes to an end, they are about to change again. Grab your copy of this compelling new story and find out how!

Comics Under the Covers

You may think Han's calling for help on that thing but he's really reading comics!

Cold enough for you out there? Well, we may not have a Super Duper Blasting SunRay 3000 to disperse the winter chill, but we do have the next best thing: comics! Grab a mug of your hot beverage of choice, a pile of blankets, and curl up with a great new read. Why not start with the new Star Wars and Darth Vader comics, fresh from the destruction of the Death Star before our heroes ever froze on Hoth? Or plunge into an even colder place in Winterworld where you can take pleasure in the fact that at least it's not that cold outside--yet! If you'd rather focus on escape than schadenfreude, there are plenty of distracting titles that have nothing to do with wintry weather--or any earthly weather at all, since they take place out in space: Fuse, Captain Marvel, Saga, Cluster, Copperfield, Guardians of the Galaxy...Or heat things up with adventures closer to home, like The Wicked & The Divine, Trees, BodiesDaredevil, Harley QuinnFade Out, The Walking Dead...

The fictional possibilities are endless, and if you get yourself a big enough stack of books, you won't have to come out from under the covers until spring! Bundle-up and come on over to your friendly neighborhood Comix Connection--but if you head out on tauntaun be careful, I hear those things bite...or at least, suffer frostbite! We suggest more reliable means of transportation to fetch your precious haul of comics, but however you get here, we'll be glad to help keep you entertained while you hibernate!
