    Jeff Lemire and Phil Hester's Image book comes to an end, and I'm left scratching my head as to what the point was. When this book first started, I thought it had a lot of potential. Then they announced it was only going to be 12 issues, and I was sceptical. Now it's over, and I'm less than impressed. There was a lot of story to be mined here. We only had 12 issues with the past storyline, and 8 with the present one, and I didn't feel like I'd connected enough to the characters to really care abou Jeff Lemire and Phil Hester's Image book comes to an end, and I'm left scratching my head as to what the point was.

There was a lot of story to be mined here. We only had 12 issues with the past storyline, and 8 with the present one, and I didn't feel like I'd connected enough to the characters to really care about by the time everything was over. There was no explanation as to what was going on either - everything ends and we're just meant to accept the ending. I don't need everything laid out for me in black and white, but there's not even breadcrumbs to try and piece it together for ourselves. Hester's artwork's still fairly consistent. He was a good choice for a book about spindly trees, and he pulls off the final few issues without a drop in quality (although the last few issues did take a long time to come out in single issues). It's not often I use disappointed and Jeff Lemire in the same sentence, but I think I kind of have to here - this was a disappointing Jeff Lemire book. There's nothing inherently wrong with it, but it just ends far too quickly, and I wanted so much more.

    You what, mate? The only reason I'm reading Family Tree, Vol. 2: Seeds is because I thought that was the end! And what do you mean "Meg's final transformation into a tree"? She's already transformed??? *sigh* I guess I'll have to read this in the future! You what, mate? The only reason I'm reading Family Tree, Vol. 2: Seeds is because I thought that was the end!

    Could've gone on for 127 more chapters, but still satisfying. Could've gone on for 127 more chapters, but still satisfying.

    Beyond the doomer message that the world is better off without humans on it, what I didn't enjoy in this series (which should have been only 2 volumes, not 3, 4 chapters an issue? what a waste) is that it lacks the delicate character building that Lemire usually excels at. Nobody in this feels like an interesting, real person. The plot - mostly a sequence of violent scenes - goes by without enough quiet moments to really build up who these people are when someone isn't trying to kill them.

The art's fine, the story's not terrible, but it was a really underwhelming read in the end.

    Maybe it has taken to long between the release of vol. 2 and this one, but it seems like I drop off of the story a bit, or maybe this wasn't that good of an ending. I like the universe and world this series has created, but this final volume just felt a bit too casual has an post-apocalyptical story. Good, but could have been better! Not something you will see me say often about a Jeff Lemire comic.

    Maybe I lost the momentum, but I don't think so. Maybe I lost the momentum, but I don't think so.

    An ending that doesn’t live up to the strong familial relationships established in the first two arcs. Felt rushed, choppy, and made me wonder if this project just ran out of steam at a certain point.

    Lemire touches on a lot of the same themes as his other works (family, the environment, etc.), but I stayed emotionally invested throughout all 12 issues. From reading some of the other reviews of this series, I think I like Phil Hester’s art more than the average person, which I’m sure helps. Another four-issue arc might’ve fleshed out the setting and background a bit more, but I’m happy with what we got.

    This series was always silly (people turn into trees!) but I had hopes they would take the premise and do something with it. Instead it was filled with cliches, unresolved storylines, almost no character development, and all of sudden it was wrapped up, all done, and wait, WHAT? That's IT?

    Me gustó el universo creado, y el lazo entre los protagonistas, sin embargo todo se sintió tan apresurado, como si le hubiese faltado pausas, reflexiones. Puede ser solo mi idea.

    Now it ends strong but I wish the rest had been as good as the ending.
