JESSICA FARM VOL 1 & 2

PrintE-mail Written by Andrew Musk

Jessica Farm is a fantasy comic book series created by Josh Simmons. It is a mix of serial adventure, physiological horror and fantasy. This series is very unique, with Josh Simmons creating one page a month for 50 years. So far he has released two volumes around 95 pages each, and the series so far has proven to be a treat with comic books fans.

Jessica Farm takes the form of a very indie comic book series. Drawn in a simplistic style with black and white sketches, Josh Simmons clearly shows that it is the story that counts, rather than the detail. Volume one is a confusing mix of sketches as we follow Jessica throughout the farm as she suddenly jumps through holes and meets some very strange and remarkable creatures. Just as we were unsure as to whether there was actually going to be a distinguishable plot within this series, it all comes together towards the end of volume one. It is very much a set up for the future of the series, with this volume introducing the reader to the bizarre world and the problems and stake.

Volume two then takes the reader into a strange but uniquely told fight scenes. Josh Simmons uses his simplistic art style to bring to life some of the distinguishable creatures he has created. This volume is very much centred on a serial fight scene that takes place across the farm and is truly one of the strangest comics we have ever had the pleasure of reading.

Jessica Farm is a fun filled comic of action and serial comedy to bring a comic that isn’t so much centred on a plot, but just tries to take the reader of an escapable journey into a fantasy land that is just truly really strange. The characters and creatures John Simmons has created are truly original.  It is quite hard to describe the storyline, but summed up briefly, it’s a story of a girl who finds herself on an adventure with many unusual creatures. This comic is clearly for adults with some of its more weird moments, but it is never the less a fun comic to read with many chuckles to be had along the way. We truly look forward to the next volume in the series, although we do have an eight year wait until 2024!
