We gave it a B

A lazy slice-of-life drama, Tales From The Farm is the first volume of writer-artist Jeff Lemire’s trilogy set in Essex County, Ontario. In the opener, a 10-year-old orphan who perennially wears a superhero getup lolls about his uncle’s farm and befriends a gruff gas-station proprietor.

For Fans of…
Thinky indie films; Waiting for Godot, with less chitchat.

Does It Deliver?
Patient readers will appreciate this Podunk comic’s languid pacing and stark, jittery visuals. B
