If it's crap ... We'll tell you
From the info page of www.plasticfarm.com
“Plastic Farm is a strange and unnerving comic book. Like photographs documenting a bear mauling or shark attack, it is physically uncomfortable to read and nearly impossible to put down…Rafer Roberts is scary and brilliant.”
-Punk Planet on issues #6-8
Written and (mostly) drawn by RaferRoberts, Plastic Farm follows the life of a man named Chester and his slow descent into complete insanity and chronicles how that madness reshapes the world around him. Chester has had a rough childhood, has a magic cowboy that rides a dinosaur living inside of his head, and is now, late in life, sitting in a nameless airport bar during a blizzard telling his life story to a group of people who really couldn’t care less.
The first story arc “Sowing Seeds on Fertile Soil” encompasses the first twelve issues, and introduces nearly every major character that will appear in this projected 40-50 issue series. These twelve issues are available to purchase at finer comic shops around the world, or through the official Plastic Farm website. A big fat collection of these issues is also available for purchase here.
There will be three major arcs in Plastic Farm, two in-between issues, a prologue and an epilogue. The second story arc begins in issue thirteen and is entitled “Seasons of Growth in the Fields of Despair”.
Plastic Farm began as a series of tabloid-sized minicomics back in the year 2000. Four issues came out in that format before I decided to try publishing the book in a standard format.
