Without spoiling, we review- “Frank at Home on the Farm Issue #4”. The unique horror comic series featuring animal farm and world war situations, will be ending with the fourth and final issue. The fourth issue’s crowd funding campaign was successful on the Kickstarter crowd funding platform, thus, making this horror comic a reality!
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.
About Issue #4:
Frank At Home On The Farm #4 is the giant-sized 36-page final chapter of our beautifully illustrated four-part miniseries. This issue brings our farm-based, horror epic to a close as all the questions are answered.
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.
Frank at Home on the Farm horror comic series has been building up a unique horror atmosphere with the backdrop of World War memories of the protagonist Frank and his arrival at his now desolate family farm. To makes things creepier, the animals of the farm have been acting strange, and Frank has to find his missing family by investigating the farm. The fourth and final issue puts the pieces of the puzzle together and provides you with a complete picture.
The fourth issue starts off where the third one ended. The animals seem to have their own little civil war, and once that is over, we see Frank again, who is wondering what’s going on while still trying to figure out what happened to his family. We also see what’s happening at the local police station, and as Frank discovers more secrets about the farm, the police also discover that something is not right at the farm. The horror comic takes a lot of twists and turns, and the climax is spectacular. It’s like seeing a Hollywood film in a horror comic form. The ending is unexpected and yet feels satisfying, exciting and more importantly the right thing to happen in the circumstances shown.
Like the previous 3 issues, the fourth issue is a fully colored 30 paged horror comic, with well written dialogues, dark themes, blood, gore, and violence in the right parts. Illustrations are creepy, yet have artistic feel to them. Dialogues provide ample information to the reader without over-explanation. There’s no nudity, suggestive themes or bad language. The tension builds up from the first page, and keeps getting better to make the ending even more exciting. There’s a sneak peek of the next horror comic by the creators included in this issue. Also, I like that there’s a page dedicated in this comic issue about how the idea of “Frank at Home on the Farm” comic series came to be. It’s nice to hear about the efforts and creative minds involved in the making of this masterpiece. That makes the reader feel like a part of the journey.
Overall, Frank at Home on the Farm Issue #4 is a well-designed, well written and perfectly paced final issue that exceeds all the expectations of the fans in terms of content and story. There is a lot of quality content in the 30 pages of this issue. Filled with scary scenes, violence, subtle humor, interesting characters, and an outstanding ending that will shake you up. The revelations might make you re-read the previous issues and might even make you think about a lot of stuff. While, this comic issue is best enjoyed by reading all the previous issues first, as a standalone issue, it still is an entertaining horror comic as the last few pages do reveal a lot of information for new readers as well. This fourth issue definitely marks a satisfying and thrilling action packed end to the Frank’s story that no horror fan should miss!
Preview from Kickstarter Legacy / Archive page:
Set in an early 1920s England that’s still recovering from the turmoil of the First World War – Frank At Home On The Farm revels in capturing the small historical details of the period. We also use the setting and time period as a way to ramp up the confusion and feeling of isolation. The war resulted in decimated families and people relocating around the country – leading to less connected communities and an increased possibility for awful events to be set in motion before anyone could notice.
With incredible art by up and coming superstar Clark Bint – Frank At Home On The Farm will leave you checking the door is locked before going to sleep and looking suspiciously at that owl perched outside your window.
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.
