Asylum Press has released the original graphic novel Farmhouse as an ongoing web comic series and digital app.
Farmhouse is a psychological neo noir thriller about a drifter named Sam Corneile who returns home to take a job at a local mental institution where he discovers a group of patients being exploited under an art therapy regimen. While there, he falls for Helen, a feisty but troubled woman who dares him to confront his past. The story examines what lurks deep within the human mind, both sane and insane.
The book was written by playwright Elizabeth J. Musgrave (Hell Comes to Hollywood) and illustrated by Szymon Kudranski (Spawn). “This was my first graphic novel and it was very exciting to see it come to life visually”, says Musgrave, “Szymon really nailed the dark and gritty feel of the characters and the mental ward.”
"Farmhouse was a challenging story for me to illustrate, it provided me the opportunity to work in a different style that complimented the setting", explains Kudranski, "If anyone is interested in how my work looked before Spawn and Penguin, they should check out the book."
Farmhouse #1 is 100% FREE and available on Comixology, ComicsPlus (Iverse), Graphicly, Diamond Digital, MyDigitalComics, DrivethruComics, Amusedom as well as stand alone apps and epubs on Kindle Fire, Nook, Kobo, ibookstore, and Google Books.
“We wanted to make the book available to as many people as possible,” explains publisher Frank Forte. “We’re very excited about the possibility of reaching so many people all over the world. Tablets and smart phone ownership is exploding and we want to provide great comics content. The one obstacle we face is coordinating releases on so many diverse platforms and devices.”
The Farmhouse web comic is updated Monday, Wednesday and Friday and can be seen at:
