F.A.R.M. System Cover Art
People often ask us, “how did you guys become B-movie reviewers?” Well the truth is folks, it took us years of hard work, training, and determination to develop the grit and skills necessary to play ball in the b-movie big leagues.
Just like us, the characters in the new comic F.A.R.M System work their way up though the minors for their chance to make it as professional big league super heroes!
F.A.R.M. SYSTEM SYNOPSIS:
In the Farm System, having an incredible and unique power is only the first step. Guided by an army of agents, managers, and experts, recruits must undergo rigorous psychological evaluations, harassment and sensitivity seminars, marketing, and endorsement workshops, and costume design meetings, all to boost their chances of recruitment into an A-list superhero team.
Some recruits make “the Bigs”. Some have fleeting moments of glory, then lose it all. Some take “Blue Cowl” gigs as superpowered bodyguards for famous actors or powerful CEOs. Some flounder in the System for years, never getting “the call”. And some find success by joining teams of a... less reputable ilk.
Following the profound pop-culture satire of Three Fingers, The King, and BB Wolf and The Three LPs, award-winning graphic novelist Rich Koslowski examines the hopes, disappointments, perseverance, and triumphs of the super-gifted... and the sometimes drastic lengths they will go to achieve fortune and fame.
What We Like About It:
We love how F.A.R.M System takes the idea of a super-hero universe and grounds it with the concept of a minor league sports system. Of course, many of the characters have superpowers but they still deal with the real-world struggles of a prospect going up the ranks. Competition, contracts, swarmy agents, trades, and “old players” aging out as new blood comes in.
F.A.R.M System offers a fresh take on the superhero backstory genre and we'd to see this one made into a show or movie!
F.A.R.M. System is available now!
