Tom Holland returns as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Peter heads to Europe on a class trip with Ned (Jacob Batalon), MJ (Zendaya), and the rest their class. The trip becomes less of a vacation and more of a work trip when Spidey is called in by Nick Fury (Samuel L.

What is Farmhand?

Farmhand #7 cover by Rob Guillory; Image Comics

Farmhand is one of the more conceptually macabre printed offerings from Image Comics, the company that famously published (note the past tense,) The Walking Dead. Pertinently, it appears that the comic series, the brainchild of writer/artist Rob Guillory, is set to become the next Image-adapted series to manifest as a television show on cable network AMC. Indeed, AMC has announced its Farmhand adaptation as one of two new serial TV projects, with the other being a split personality drama called Of Two Minds, from writer Morgan Dover-Pearl. Both shows will be written and developed by LaToya Morgan, who recently served as a writer and co-executive producer on the network’s recently-concluded post-apocalyptic martial arts series, Into the Badlands. Guillory has taken his excitement over the project to Twitter. Image’s Farmhand, launched with its first issue back in July 2018, with Rob Guillory serving as writer and artist, partnered in the latter capacity with Taylor Wells.

Specifically, Jedidiah has managed to perfect the art of growing fast-healing, “plug-and-play” human organs. While Jed’s home-grown transplants have brought healing to many, something strange is in his soil, representing an ominous sign for the legacy of his family farm.
