Life in the Trench is harsh but simple—until a young girl braves an unknown path in a bracing coming-of-age short story by the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Tooth and the Gideon Falls comics.

Born into a small, sheltered community on a hostile ice planet, Milliken was raised to believe that the Trench provides for those who huddle beneath its massive walls—and that those walls stretch to infinity. But venturing into the wilds beyond the village is a rite of passage she’s longed for. To push into utterly forbidden territory is to make a discovery that will forever change how Milliken sees her home, her family, and her future.

    Snow Angels: A Short Story Reviews

  • Paromjit

    Jeff Lemire's short story is set on a small ice planet, a coming of age story, in which young almost 13 year old girl, Milliken, lives with her younger sister, Mae, and father live in a small village,...

  • Alex Sarll

    The first prose of any length I've read from Lemire, not that it's exactly long. Clearly it ties into his new comic of the same name, with Jock both illustrating that and supplying the cover here; equ...

    Jeff Lemire writes prose here for the first time that I'm aware of. What made more sense was to find that there is a comic version of this story, and it is an Issue Zero of what I guess is hoped to be...
