Hitting Shelves just in time for The World Series, Top Shelf Productions and award-winning comic book creator / graphic novelist Rich Koslowski’s F.A.R.M. System will delight superhero-lovers and sports fans alike!
In the Farm System, having an incredible and unique power is only the first step. Guided by an army of agents, managers, and experts, recruits must undergo rigorous psychological evaluations, harassment and sensitivity seminars, marketing, and endorsement workshops, and costume design meetings, all to boost their chances of recruitment into an A-list superhero team.
Some recruits make “the Bigs.” Some have fleeting moments of glory, then lose it all. Some take “Blue Cowl” gigs as superpowered bodyguards for famous actors or powerful CEOs. Some flounder in the System for years, never getting “the call.” And some find success by joining teams of a…less reputable ilk.
Following the profound pop-culture satire of Three Fingers, The King, and BB Wolf and The Three LPs, award-winning graphic novelist Koslowski examines the hopes, disappointments, perseverance, and triumphs of the super-gifted…and the sometimes drastic lengths they will go to achieve fortune and fame.
Koslowski using the baseball minor leagues and big leagues idea swapped with superpowered beings is something that was never really on my mind, but makes perfect sense. Train, get your reps, and experience in the minor leagues before making your debut in the big leagues. Additionally, not staying at the level of just a training wheels before taking them off, Koslowski adds agents, managers, scouts, and more to the mix to give it the real sports feel.
You might see some familiar faces between the pages of F.A.R.M. System, but rest assured this is Koslowski’s creation. His artwork gives a cartoony-feel to a sports-superhero story.
Grab Koslowski’s F.A.R.M. System graphic novel via your local comic book shop or bookstore if possible. However, the book is also available online.
