Fear. Violence. Mystery. Paranoia. War. Animals.

Frank thought things couldn't get any stranger. Well the animals have something to say about that.

Frank At Home On The Farm tells the story of a man returning from war to find his family mysteriously missing from their farm. This sets in motion a series of events that claw and tear at Frank's mind, body, and soul.

Tormented by nightmares of the front line, the mysterious voices that plague him and disturbed by the townsfolk's lack of knowledge or interest in his family's whereabouts, Frank becomes more and more isolated on the farm as he tries to uncover where his parents have vanished to... all under the watchful eye of the farm's animals.

Our first two issues set the scene for our story. Frank Cross returned home, following his service in World War 1, expecting to be greeted by his elated parents and younger  brother. Instead he found their farm empty except for the animals.

Searching their home and the surrounding grounds only added to the mysterious circumstances, sending Frank into the local town in hope someone there might know something - instead he uncovered nothing but more dead ends. 

All this took place against the backdrop of horrifying nightmares of war and strange behaviour from the animals of the farm. Then - with his nerves fraying and hope draining - Frank received a visitor who changes everything...

Frank At Home On The Farm #3 is the giant-sized 32-page third chapter of our beautifully illustrated four-part miniseries.

Combining the isolationist horror of The Shining with the body-horror of David Cronenberg and Jacob's Ladder, the story twists and turns right the way to the end. With every flip of the page you'll find yourself pulled further into Frank's nightmare -  imagine Guillermo Del Toro directing an adaption of Animal Farm.

Issue 3 takes us through the looking glass - the events at the end of the previous chapter launching us into a wild ride that will carry us through to the very end of Frank's story. 

Strap-in because the gate has been busted through and the animals are loose - there's no putting them back now.

If you love psychological horror, terrifying creatures, a haunting atmosphere and not knowing what may be waiting for you when you turn the page - then this book is for you.

And don't just take our word for it, here's what the reviewers are saying:

"There’re a lot of horror comics out there, but few succeed in dousing  you in their character’s mindframe as well as this one does. It is an absolute powerhouse of paranoia and  confusion, one that is going to leave you a little bit shaken after you  walk away from it." The Comic Book Yeti

"Frank at Home on the Farm is my kind of horror. It gets  under your skin and stays there, keeping you on edge with every turn of  the page. This is full of mystery and pure, unbridled terror, working  with a very simple idea of a man alone in his family home." Horror DNA

"This comic is magnificent it's like an odd nightmare full of  odd characters and well drawn scary shadows by Bint, so far the book  reminds me of a period piece version of a mix up between Twin peaks and Jacob's Ladder." Graphic Vandalism

"The style and art is just gorgeous." Comic Art Festival Podcast

"#1 of this creepy rural horror tale is an unnerving affair  whose mixture of tense, vulnerable art and displaced protagonist make for an effective debut." A Place To Hang Your Cape

"The preview pages I read gave me, actual, literal nightmares." Comic Book Podcast

Set in an early 1920s England that's still recovering from the turmoil of the First World War - Frank At Home On The Farm revels in capturing the small historical details of the period. We also use the setting and the time period as a way to ramp up the confusion and feeling of isolation. The war resulted in decimated families and people relocating around the country - leading to less connected communities and an increased possibility for awful events to be set in motion - before anyone could notice.

With incredible art by up and coming superstar Clark Bint - Frank At Home On The Farm will leave you checking the door is locked before going to sleep and looking suspiciously at that owl perched outside your window.

As part of the 'Buy the Farm' tier we're giving you the chance to purchase some of Clark's stunning original art pages from FRANK AT HOME ON THE FARM #3. These are the real thing. If you look closely you can probably see Clark's sweat on them.

Below you can see the terrifying pages we have on offer! When selecting this tier please let us know which of the remaining pages you  would like to receive.

We've been lucky enough to have three amazing artists create art prints for Issue 3 which you can purchase in the Art Print Bundle Tiers.

Anna Readman is a wonderfully talented up and coming artist who you'll be seeing a lot more of in the future. Check out her work on Twitter @annareadman. 

We're also offering the original inked sketch for sale (image below) - a real one of a kind for an art connoisseur.

Don't worry mum and dad, I'll take good care of the place...

Alisdair Wood is a fantastic illustrator who previously co-created TRAGIC TALES OF HORRERE from Madius Comics. We highly recommend checking out Alisdair's collection of creepy house illustrations on his Twitter page @alisdair_wood.

Home, sweet home

Finally, we have a haunting print from the wonderful Chris Matthews. Chris has mainly worked in novel and magazine illustration but is just making the move into comics. He'll be the artist on MUG SHOTS written by FRANK scribe Jordan Thomas, which is coming out next year. You can find his incredible work on here.

Honestly, this is a drawing not a real World War 1 era photograph

So, who are the disturbed team taking you on this horrifying journey?

Jordan Thomas - the writer of this terrifying tale, Jordan has fled to Spain to hide out in the caves of Granada to avoid censure once people see the sick things his mind creates. He has also worked regularly as an editor for Mad Robot Comics, as well as contributing several stories to the Cadavers: World Gone to Hell Anthology that was a roaring success on Kickstarter last year.

Clark Bint - the artist behind this fable, he takes what Jordan thinks up and makes it even more upsetting and crazy. Clark works so hard and delivers such detail with every page that he has not had time to shave since the project began. His regular trips out  to photograph animals in Oxfordshire are also gaining him somewhat of a reputation. He previously delivered wonderful art for the Murder Most Mundane graphic novel.

Yeah... I'm not even sure what to say about this one...

LetterSquids is a comic letterer and graphic designer based in  Connecticut. He does work for Advent Comics, Insight Comics, LUKA  Studios and Red Stylo Media. He is also a frequent contributor to The  Comic Jam. You can see his work at lettersquids.artstation.com

Justin uses all his own ink... get it? Ah, I'm wasted on you guys *storms off*

Risks and challenges

The comic is complete apart from the sections that can't be finished until after the campaign, such as the backers page.

This means that the comic can go to the printers almost immediately upon being funded.

The aim is to have the book in your hands by February 2020.

We can't thank the people who support us enough, and we are excited to get this story out to you.
