Award-winning and fan favorite comics creator Jeff Lemire spins the tale of two star-crossed loved through space in time in TRILLIUM!
It’s the year 3797, and botanist Nika Temsmith is researching a strange species on a remote science station near the outermost rim of colonized space.
It’s the year 1921, and renowned English explorer William Pike leads an expedition into the dense jungles of Peru in search of the fabled “Lost Temple of the Incas,” an elusive sanctuary said to have strange healing properties.
Two disparate souls separated by thousands of years and hundreds of millions of miles. Yet they will fall in love and, as a result, bring about the end of the universe. Even though reality is unraveling all around them, nothing can pull them apart. This isn’t just a love story, it’s the LAST love story ever told.

“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
