Review:

The Jenkins family is shaken with Jedidiah in the hospital after a brutal attack and the Farm under fire from the media. Who knew growing human body parts would be so complicated? Mayor Thorne has shown her true colors to us, but the Jenkins are still in the dark as to the extent of her mysterious abilities and what her master plan is. If you thought Farmhand was crazy before, just wait until you see how this second season wraps up.

Every single issue of Farmhand has had at least one moment where I audibly say, “What the fuck is that?” You never know what to expect and this chapter is no different. This is just one of the reasons why I love this book. There are quite a few of those moments in Farmhand #10 with an incredible cliffhanger ending that sent my jaw to the floor.

Writer/artist Rob Guillory has worked to establish the characters and their relationships with one another to the point where I'm practically yelling at the comic trying to help them. I wait with bated breath for the next shoe to drop as Mayor Thorne pulls strings in the background.

The mayor has quickly become an absolutely diabolical villain in Farmhand. Guillory does a fantastic job showing just how far her reach is in the opening pages. These have a terrific layout that shows Thorne in the center and all the affected “transplants” around her. She has a connection to them that allows her to speak right into their minds, wherever she is.

This is a rather ominous scene, made even more so by letterer Kody Chamberlain, who gives the mayor a lilting voice with smoke-like word balloons in purple font. This goes well with the sickly and downright terrifying nature of her appearance in this sequence.

There's something so unnerving about plants growing out of people and the mayor is the most unnerving of the bunch. She's this disturbing amalgamation of various plants with leaves, tendrils, and flowers sticking out of her gaunt body. This contrasts well with her professional appearance she shows to the outside world.

Some of the plant-based monster seeps into her life as the mayor during a scene with her and Zeke's wife. Colorist Taylor Wells makes the mayor look green in the hospital room, like she can't fully hide who – or what – she really is in this space. This is like a big warning sign that only we can see.

As mentioned earlier, there is a whopper of a cliffhanger for Farmhand #10. It's the kind of ending that will make you want to go back and re-read everything that came before to look for clues. It's also the type that will have you clamoring for more. Unfortunately, we have to wait until November before we see this story continue. If this issue is any indication, it will definitely be worth the wait.
