Stores commission exclusive covers for books all the time. It is awesome when they commission the exclusives and offer them at a low price. That is where the inexpensive variant alerts come in, spotlighting cool books at low prices. Farmhand #1 is a new Image series by Chew artist, Rob Guillory. I have had a chance to read issue 1, being a fan of Chew, and loved it.
Farmhand #1 Jesse James Variant is limited to 500 copies, total. They are up on eBay for $6.98 plus $1 shipping ($7.98 total and out the door.)
So what is Farmhand about?
Jedidiah Jenkins is a farmer-but his cash crop isn’t corn or soy. 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. From ROB GUILLORY, Eisner-winning co-creator and artist of Image Comics’ CHEW, comes a new dark comedy about science gone sinister and agriculture gone apocalyptic. Nature is a Mother.
