From Strip To Script – Trees
By Josh Hechinger Welcome to From Strip to Script, where I take a page of finished comic art and try to derive a script from it, to see what I can learn from the exercise. I missed the first 'season' of Warren Ellis and Jason Howard's Trees when it was coming out, but ended up catching up[...]
36 Thoughts About 35 Of Today's Comics – From Trees To Lumberjanes
Though from a time when the comic books were way down the pecking order from the strips… Valhalla Mad is basically what if The Truth + The Divine had been written by Jamie Boardman. Trees #9 brings Googlebuses to the streets of London Robotransport that has its limitations, but you'll never have to wait for a driver to[...]

Warren Ellis Is Spreading His Trees Further
I do rather like the science-fiction global petri dish story of Trees by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard But not long ago, the big man had doubts about its success it seemed. Well, things are ticking along. Warren writes in his recent newsletter, We overprinted the TREES collection (issues 1-8) significantly – something like 300% of initial orders – and apparently[...]
37 Thoughts About 37 Of Today's Comics – Batman Eternal To Trees
The end of Trees Vol 1 And he doesn't mess about, Whatever words could they be? Bitchumin, slagheap and constantly-annoying? A punch is too good for him, in today's Earth 2. Grimm Fairy Tales is less circumspect… and a little more forthright. New 52: Future's End has a rather loose lipped John Constantine, but they do all seem to be[...]

Transformers, Angry Birds/Transformers, TMNT, TMNT/Ghostbusters, X-Files, Edward Scissorhands
Also, check for the Secret Wars references here… Trees #7 Called it. Sometimes comics like Infinity Man And The Forever People get so meta I just don't know where to look. Reading books like Arkham Manor, which take place before Batman #36, after Batman #36, just makes things all a bit weirder. Gotham By Midnight #1 launches and,[...]
It's Time To Cut Down More Trees
Warren Ellis seems concerned about the sales of his new comic book for Image, Trees. We ran a piece. Though, concerning print runs, it as been pointed out to me that Trees is beating Transmetropolitan in sales significantly For example, randomly, Transmetropolitan #18, is estimated to have sold 16,445 Whereas Trees #3, say, sold 23,000, half way between Planetary's[...]

32 Thoughts About 32 Comics – Batman Eternal, Multiversity, Thor, Original Sin, Uncanny Avengers, Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine & The X-Men, Miles Morales, Trees, Supreme, Sirens, All New X-Men, Deadpool, Gwen Stacy, Superior Spider-Man, The Shadow, Solar, Purgatori, The Wicked + The Divine, Devilers, Translucid, Bionic Woman, Hellraiser, Storyteller,  Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, Cataclysm, Turtles In Time, X-Files, Transformers, Maxx, Littlest Pet Shop And Judge Dredd
Also, Dr Fate may have something to say about this. Dr Fate criticises Multiversity's decision to use the same plot as The Avengers right now. Why do I guess that this is the comic that will have been really underordered this week? Gwen Stacy as a Spider-Man in Edge Of Spider-Verse, and also having to deal with those really nice,[...]

Trees Shows Humans Are Only One Tiny Piece Of Existence
By Dylan Gonzalez There are some weeks when I am reading comics and the work is so good, I think to myself, this would make a great movie.  Then I stop and realize I love that this is a comic and exists solely as a comic.  I kept thinking that on the day when I was[...]

I really liked Trees Here's just one of the reason Spoilers on. Warren Ellis on the BBC's Edge Of Darkness. On the writer. Totally missed this: the writer Troy Kennedy Martin died yesterday Today, he's probably best remembered by most as writer of THE ITALIAN JOB and KELLY'S HEROES To me, he'll always be the man who wrote[...]

Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida, writes: Hey Fandom! This week Image gave us some new hotness, DC had lots of Bat books, and Marvel Original Sins tie in.
