From The Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore. 01/25/2022 — Eisner Award winning cartoonist Rob Guillory (Chew) returns with an all new story arc to the agricultural horror series Farmhand. The fourth story arc kicks off from Image Comics with issue #16 on sale this April.

In Farmhand #16, The Jedidiah Seed now grows in the wild. Their farm in ruins, the Jenkins family tries to cobble together a path forward in a world ruled by the demonic Monica Thorne.

“A lot’s happened since the last issue of Farmhand, in the world of the Jenkins Farm and in our own,” said Guillory. “And I couldn’t be happier to finally bring to life what I believe will be the darkest, most intense chapter of this strange little story yet. Buckle up.”

In the series Farmhand, Jedidiah Jenkins is a simple farmer. But his cash crop isn’t corn or soy. He grows fast-healing, highly-customizable human organs. For years, Jed’s organic transplants have brought healing to many, but deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm something sinister has taken root. Today this dark seed will begin to sprout, and the Jenkins family will be the first to taste its bitter fruit.

Farmhand #16 (Diamond Code FEB220062) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 13. 

Farmhand is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
