    Farmhand continues to impress me with issue#2. It's a story that manages to balance several different genres without every feeling bloated. The characters are multi-layered and interesting and the new wrinkles in the story lay the groundwork for the deepening mystery that will most likely carry the story forward. It's a surprising thing that one comic can manage to be so many things and execute them all so well, but Farmhand defies expectations by being a near perfect amalgamation of horror, sci-fi, drama, mystery, and comedy. Easily one of the best new books of the year! Read Full Review

    The artwork by Guillory is, well, Guillory. If you read Chew, you know what you're getting. It worked for those books, and it works here too. The colors by Taylor Wells are well done. I particularly enjoy the strange purple and red hues he gives the graft plants. It's unsettling and perfect. Farmhand is shaping up to be a really fun series, check it out. 4 out of 5 stars.

    illustrator Rob Guillory definitely slows down the pace to explore the core characters, but thats not a bad thing. The series is well positioned to dial things back up and get weird(er). Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Aug 10, 2018

    'Farmhand' #2 is another thrilling chapter that's expansive and full of small-town drama. Guillory's creativity both in writing and drawing gives this sci-fi story a wonderful blend of horror and action that is never boring. It's a definite worthwhile read.  Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 10, 2018

    Farmhand #2 is far lighter on intrigue than its predecessor. It doesnt have a lot in the way of character development either. That leaves the book little beyond some decent world-building and a Father Moore beating the tar out of a pair of henchmen. Its not awful, but I cant quite recommend it either. That said, if you loved the first issue, you will probably enjoy this one too. Read Full Review

    The helium is escaping!

    Story: 6/10
    Art: 7/10
    Overall: 5/10

    Story: The excitement and enthusiasm I felt for this book really left. I get the exposition that Rob Guillory is trying to develop, but quite honestly, I don't give a shit enough yet.

    There's just a lot of back and forth... and I can't say I care about any of it.
    The "superman" kid and his abilities, the back and forth with this foreshadowing of the sign. These thugs, it just comes across as amateur developments.

    The 1 thing I cared about was the last page. Should have been the 1st page.

    Art: It's good. The colors are there, the feeling is there, but due to the crap story, it has no room to breathe.
