A Dark Comedy About Farming Gone Apocalyptically Wrong – Preview Farmhand By Rob Guillory

by Oliver MacNamee

This July sees the release of Eisner Award winning co-creator of Chew, Rob Guillory’s, Farmhand, which was announced at Image Expo earlier this year. Billed as a dark comedy about “science gone sinister and agriculture gone apocalyptic”, Farmhand #1 is out July 11th with an FOC of June 18th. And, we’ve got a preview right her and now! Y’know, to see what Guillory’s been up to since Chew.

Farmhand follows farmer Jedidiah Jenkins whose cash crop isn’t corn or soy… it’s a little more unusual. Jed grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. Lose a finger? Need a new liver? He’s got you covered. Unfortunately, strange produce isn’t the only thing Jed’s got buried. Deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm, something dark has taken root, and it’s beginning to bloom.
