Image Comics is pleased to reveal preview pages from Eisner Award winning co-creator of CHEW Rob Guillory’s forthcoming FARMHAND. The series is set to launch this July.
FARMHAND follows farmer Jedidiah Jenkins whose cash crop isn’t corn or soy… it’s a little more unusual. Jed grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. Lose a finger? Need a new liver? He’s got you covered. Unfortunately, strange produce isn’t the only thing Jed’s got buried. Deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm, something dark has taken root, and it’s beginning to bloom.
FARMHAND is a dark comedy about science gone sinister and agriculture gone apocalyptic. Nature is a Mother.
FARMHAND #1 hits stores on Wednesday, July 11th. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, June 18th.

Premium cable network Epix has handed out a ten-episode, straight-to-series order for “Pennyworth,” a drama set in the Batman universe from “Gotham” showrunner Bruno Heller and executive producer Danny Cannon.
The origin story will revolve around Alfred Pennyworth, loyal butler to Bruce Wayne, in the time when he gives up his position as a former British SAS soldier to work for Bruce’s father Thomas Wayne in 1960s London.
The series is NOT a spin-off of Batman prequel series “Gotham” despite Heller, Cannon and Warner Horizon’s involvement, so actor Sean Pertwee who plays Alfred Pennyworth on that series is not involved. Heller will pen the script and executive produce, Cannon will direct the pilot and executive produce (same arrangement as with “Gotham”).
Jeremy Irons, Michael Gough, Michael Caine, Alan Napier, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. and William Austin have all played the role of Alfred Pennyworth over the years.

Turns out there was good reason Adult Swim was taking its time on deciding to renew their iconic animated series “Rick and Morty,” and it wasn’t a question of if so much as ‘how big a renewal’. Today comes the news and it’s a whopper.
THR reports that in a new ‘longterm deal’, the network has handed out a 70-episode order of the cult cartoon from co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. That is more than double the 31 episodes that have aired to date across three seasons and pushes it past the 100 episode number which allows for rich syndication deals.
Should it stick to the current episode count, it would take the show through to a tenth season airing sometime well into the late 2020s, though no time frame for the episodes has been announced.
“Rick and Morty” has become the flagship show of Adult Swim, ranking as TV’s No. 1 comedy, cable or broadcast, among millennials in 2017. To celebrate the news Adult Swim is rolling out a multi-city pop-up, the Rickmobile, to cater to the fervent fan base kicking off May 17th in Atlanta and ending at San Diego Comic Con in July.
In this new format, join AJ and he sits down and discusses his comic book ideas. This will be the first in a long series to help relaunch the podcast.
AJ is joined by The Plagued creators Daniel Whitfield and Camille Alaras-Whitfield as they discuss Stephen King, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and their creative process as a newly married couple.
Fans will experience a cyberpunk take on the RAT QUEENS by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Will Kirkby from Image/Shadowline this July in an electrically thrilling one-shot, RAT QUEENS SPECIAL: NEON STATIC.
“This one shot is an opportunity to take the Rat Queens to a space that we’ve never been before,” said Wiebe. “With Will Kirkby, the Neon Static issue is unlike anything we’ve ever done before, and his artistic style is the perfect opportunity to experiment with any wild ideas that come to mind. It’s all the personality you’d expect in a setting you’d never expect. Cyberpunk sass and sorcery.”
Readers will need to strap themselves in for a ride to an alternate and futuristic world, where the Rat Queens take to the neon streets of Palisade as an elite team of shadow operatives. An anonymous fiend creeps through the dark web, stealing identities and blackmailing innocent civilians for cold, hard Goldyen—and only the Queens can stop him!
RAT QUEENS SPECIAL: NEON STATIC one-shot hits stores on Wednesday, July 18th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, June 25th.
