This week on Creannotators, I talked with writer and artist Rob Guillory about Farmhand, adapting comics for TV, lessons from Chew, and plans for adapting to the future of comics!
On Comic Book Herald’s ‘Creannotators’ I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs, graphic novels or series, looking for their insights on the inspirations behind the work and ideas or hidden material readers may have missed. Creannotators is an audio/visual annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
Farmhand is one of my favorite ongoing comics since 2018. Farmhand invites us into a world of literal human body parts farming, where nearly all ailments can seemingly be cured by miracle transplants. In this world where new limbs grow on trees, there’s all sorts of family and town drama, not to mention some excellent comedy, and a supernatural mystery at the heart of the emerging science.
