The book promises to be a detailed, engrossing tale as it unfolds. Ellis's characters are interesting, without a lot of the stereotypes that often permeate his writing. The art from Jason Howard is unique, detailed, and eye-catching.
If you like good science fiction, get this book.
But back to this v1. The appearance of the alien trees reminded me a lot of the excellent SF novel The Chronoliths by Robert Charles Wilson, where similar structures appear, however in Wilson's case they came from the future. In essence they are mysterious but at least in v1 they are largely the backdrop for a set of parallel running stories with a closer focus on people than on the SF. Yes, it is truly a character-driven book (another incidental similarity with Wilson's SF novels), and quite adult in nature. Ellis displays his usual flair for combining intricate narration and big concepts, yet I feel it is more mature than much of his earlier work.
The art is also worth praising, it is more in line with indivdualistic European graphic novels than with the sometimes generic style of American comic books.
I strongly recommend this book, one of the better and more interesting recent comics. Not for the impatient or for those that crave generic comic book action though.
This book does a fine job at showing how the Trees effect different parts of the world and leaves you wondering what their purpose is. The second series will be picking up later this month.
