Forget holographic covers– in 2019, multimedia promotion is where it’s at. Farmhand creator Rob Guillory recently announced that an original soundtrack was produced for the comic by artist Skies Speak.
Guillory compared the tone of Farmhand to the horror/comedy of Stranger Things. That comparison is evident in the soundtrack which has plenty of synths and mesmerizing techno beats. This reminds me of when an original EP was created to promote the Black Canary comics. Incorporating music into comic promotion is fun and unconventional; hopefully we’ll see more of this in the future.
The Farmhand Original Soundtrack will release on March 20th.
