Written and (mostly) drawn by Rafer Roberts, Plastic Farm follows the life of a man named Chester and his slow descent into complete insanity and chronicles how that madness reshapes the world around him. Chester has had a rough childhood, has a magic cowboy that rides a dinosaur living inside of his head, and is now, late in life, sitting in a nameless airport bar during a blizzard telling his life story to a group of people who really couldn’t care less.
There will be three major arcs in Plastic Farm, two in-between issues, a prologue and an epilogue. The first story arc PLASTIC FARM PART ONE: SOWING SEEDS ON FERTILE SOIL encompasses the first twelve issues, and introduces nearly every major character that will appear in this projected 40-50 issue series. The TPB collection (ISBN: 9780981457024) is available to purchase at finer comic shops around the world, through this website, from Amazon or Things From Another World. Digital copies are currently being released through Graphicly.
PLASTIC FARM: FERTILIZER (an interlude in three aprils) was original published in 2007 as an original graphic novel, and acts as a bridge between parts one and two. Only a few copies remain and they are available only through this website.
PLASTIC FARM PART TWO: SEASONS OF GROWTH IN THE FIELDS OF DESPAIR is the current story-arc and is anticipated to run to issue 45 or so. Print copies are currently available in mini-comic form from this website’s store, and are forthcoming digitally from Graphicly.
