"Farmhand #10" Cover

All of the tension built up in the last nine issues comes to a climax in Farmhand #10. Though the issue itself is not action-packed, the tension Guillory builds using unconventional panel design is enough to leave the reader on the edge of their seat. Zeke is coming to terms with his role in all that's been happening, while the mystery of what Jed's seed has been secretly doing to those it heals comes to light. With this issue, Season 2 comes to a close, and Season 3 can't come fast enough.

As always, Guillory pours himself into this issue. I think in terms of storytelling it's his best yet: from use of space in his art to character development, the writer/artist has come a long way since his days on Chew. Although there are a few stories going on in this issue, they're told cohesively, and thanks to Guillory storytelling over the last nine issues, there's no confusion about what's happening. Couple that with his eye-popping art, and you've got a really solid issue. The colors, lettering, and overall design of this issue and issues past is nothing short of great. The team of Guillory, Wells, Chamberlain, and Durand have put together something really special in this book and every issue is worth picking up.

If you've been following the series, you'll want to pick up this issue. If you haven't, go get the first trade and you can wait for the next trade, which will be coming out soon. Season 3 starts in November 2019.
