‘Farmhand’ #19 review

The fight for Momma’s bones begins.

Rob Guillory continues to impress with his brilliant science-gone-wrong comic Farmhand. Issue #19 picks up shortly after issue #18, where we saw Monica Thorne have the audacity to ask Jedidah Jenkins for the remains of his dead wife, Anna. After Jed refuses, it sends Thorne into a hellacious rage, and she knocks out Andrea, Jedidiah’s daughter, and kidnaps Jedidiah. Farmhand #19 sees Andrea meet up with her brother Zeke and Pastor Tree to try and stop Thorne’s goons from stealing their mother’s remains. It’s an insanely good thrill ride of an issue, complete with creepy plant children, grave robbers, and more. But, of course, the bigger question is why Thorne wants Jedidiah’s wife’s body in the first place?

Although we don’t figure out why Thorne wants the Jenkins mom’s body this issue, we do learn that Thorne will go to great lengths to get it, even if that means taking someone’s head off with a sledgehammer. Aside from that, readers are treated to possibly the most action-packed moments you’ve ever seen in a cemetery, which slowly makes you realize that the peace treaty between Freetown and Monica Thorne is gradually coming to an end. None of the characters are safe.

Rob Guillory has done a fantastic job raising the stakes and taking the tone from silly to serious during this latest arc. Guillory continues to flesh out his concept well and deliver an unpredictable and entertaining story that’s still as good as the first issue. In addition, Guillory’s art and design remain a force to reckoned with and bring an electric flair to each page that’s hard to describe. Colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieau’s colors are hypnotic, especially in the plant people characters. From the glowing green eyes to the fungus growing on their backs, Beaulieau’s variety of colors gives the plant villains of the story a creepy horrifying look that makes the story even more exciting.

Farmhand #19 is a fun read that brings many characters into new and scary territory. The pacing is spot on, and the script for this issue does a great job setting up the Erie things to come in future issues. Farmhand #19 is not a book to miss.
