Without spoiling, we review the horror comic “Frank at Home on the Farm” Issue 3. A unique comic series that explores the farm life and post war trauma along with some paranormal happenings.
The creators are: Jordan Thomas – the writer, Clark Bint – the artist & lettering by LetterSquids.
Frank has returned to his family’s farm to find something wrong. Very wrong.
FRANK AT HOME ON THE FARM tells the story of a man returning home from the frontline of World War 1 to find his family mysteriously missing from their farm. FRANK is an intense tale of horror and paranoia where nothing makes sense and everything that barks also bites.
After the introductions in the first issue and some violent experiences in the second issue, the third issue focuses on the interactions between the animals and Frank, who’s still troubled by strange voices and nightmares. Here, things start getting worse as he is confused about what’s real and what’s not because of all the voices, nightmares, and strange situations.
There’s more humor in this third issue as some situations are unexpectedly funny. Then there’s some conspiracy theory type of situation along with moral dilemma for the hero. Involvement of other characters is less than the second issue as there’s more focus on Frank, his nightmares and the current situation at the farm. The search for his family seems to have taken a backseat, despite the worry of his missing family still visible on his face and dialogues. The lack of information about his family does seem odd but we can relate as there’s indeed no way to find missing people in a small town where anything could happen to them and especially when there are no clues left on the farm.
The focus on Frank and the farm is a welcome move as we get to see more of what’s going on in the mind of Frank as well as the farm of his family. This issue ends on a high note as there are a lot of strange things happening around the town which are difficult to investigate. This issue leaves some important questions unanswered while confirms some doubts we had in the former issues.
Overall, made with beautiful art, intriguing storytelling and scary scenarios, Frank at Home on the Farm Issue 3 has continued what the former issues had started and made some new surprising revelations through situational humor as well. The fourth and final issue is going to end the series and hopefully, answer all the questions we have. The fourth issue will be hitting Kickstarter in March 2020. Till then, these three issues will surely entertain the horror fan within you.
Frank at Home on the Farm Issue #4 (Final Issue) will be launching on Kickstarter crowd funding platform in March 2020! Click here to get notified when the campaign launches: Kickstarter Page of Issue 4.
Issue 3 sample pages and Info from the Kickstarter Page:
The first two issues set the scene for our story. Frank Cross returned home, following his service in World War 1, expecting to be greeted by his elated parents and younger brother. Instead he found their farm empty except for the animals.
Searching their home and the surrounding grounds only added to the mysterious circumstances, sending Frank into the local town in hope someone there might know something – instead he uncovered nothing but more dead ends.
All this took place against the backdrop of horrifying nightmares of war and strange behaviour from the animals of the farm. Then – with his nerves fraying and hope draining – Frank received a visitor who changes everything…
Frank At Home On The Farm #3 is the giant-sized 32-page third chapter of our beautifully illustrated four-part miniseries.
Combining the isolationist horror of The Shining with the body-horror of David Cronenberg and Jacob’s Ladder, the story twists and turns right the way to the end. With every flip of the page you’ll find yourself pulled further into Frank’s nightmare – imagine Guillermo Del Toro directing an adaption of Animal Farm.
Issue 3 takes us through the looking glass – the events at the end of the previous chapter launching us into a wild ride that will carry us through to the very end of Frank’s story.
Strap-in because the gate has been busted through and the animals are loose – there’s no putting them back now.
If you love psychological horror, terrifying creatures, a haunting atmosphere and not knowing what may be waiting for you when you turn the page – then this book is for you.
