2014 EISNER AWARD NOMINEE FOR BEST LIMITED SERIES
"This book represents a challenge to other creators: the bar for creativity in comics continues to be raised."—Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“For writer/artist Jeff Lemire, his new Vertigo series TRILLIUM isn’t just an exercise in stretching his sci-fi muscles; it’s an exercise in stretching the boundaries of his creativity and artistic talent."—Nerdist
"When you get to the last page of TRILLIUM, you can't help but think "wow." This is an exciting and original work that deserves your attention and your dollars. Buy TRILLIUM."—IGN
“TRILLIUM is a confident, unique debut that exemplifies why Lemire has become one of DC’s top creators, but he remains at his best when he’s doing his own thing away from superheroes.”—A.V. Club/The Onion
"Once again Lemire shows why he's a master storyteller. Trillium is exciting, visceral and cerebral at the same time."—CraveOnline
“If Lemire has adopted the quicker pacing of his recent works, he still knows when to pan the camera back and let his layouts project the vivid imagination bustling inside of him. And that’s what makes TRILLIUM such a special work: this is a piece of an artist pulled from a deep place nobody’s ever seen before. And for Lemire to share that, all we can say is thank you.”—Paste Magazine
"Lovely and terribly enjoyable."—Comic Book Resources
"This is sci-fi at its finest, an amalgam of everything we love—time travel, space, alien races and of course the most important element of how humans process these stirring events."—Aint' It Cool News

Side note: it's really cool that at the back of the book there is a translation key of the alien language. I had a good time flipping back through the story and translating the Atabithi dialogue.
The story line is a bit depressing. The human race is fighting to survive a disease that is killing everyone in the universe and there is only about a thousand people left to survive. Reminds me a bit of 'Intersteller'.
While some people need some time to adjust to Lemire's style of art I can get into it right away. I see a lot of people call it "raw" or "scratchy" which can sometimes be buzz words for poor or bad art. In this case, it actually is "raw" and is perfect for the characters and story being told here.
From what I understand the comic book was presented mostly if not all in flip book style while only one chapter in the collected edition is able to utilize that presentation. I don't know whether that made the story more engrossing or distracting but I enjoyed it for the chapter I got to see it in action.
While we don't get to know everything about our lead characters we do learn enough to know that they are broken people who are victims of their time, whether by the horror of war or the unforgiving danger of space. What we learn is enough to become engrossed in their life, and their love.
I enjoyed the experience but I didn't seem to love it like many others. I really did enjoy the worlds I was taken to but I must admit, I felt a little let down by the ending. I don't know what I was expecting but I expecting more. That might be more a failing on my end rather than the author/artist, however.
I didn't find some deeper meaning that many have found, perhaps I'm more obtuse than most, and I liked it quite a bit more than some of the negative reviews I've come across, so maybe I'm just a bit less obtuse than some.
I'm not upset I went down this journey and I'll probably go down it again soon someday. Maybe I will find that extra something that many have found and if I do, I'll be better for it
It's a sci-fi story set in both the 38th Century and just after WWI. Another reviewer described it as a "sci-fi space love opera." That's a great description. There are times it feels poorly constructed though, as the story isn't seamless. The mechanism on which the story turns is strange, even for sci-fi. The characters are fine and the art is very good.
