Rich Koslowski Book Signing Event and F.A.R.M System Review

A talented Midwest comic book artist is heading to Siouxland to sign comic books and his new graphic novel, F.A.R.M. System! He's sending me a free copy for review purposes, and I'm excited to check it out and let you know our thoughts.  Here's what parents should know about Rich Koslowski, his books, and this special event:

a comic book text bubble contains the words "Rich Koslowski Book Signing @ Acme Comics"

The Event: Rich Koslowski @ Acme Comics

Rich Koslowski will be at Sioux City's Acme Comics on Pierce Street on Saturday, November 26th, 2022 (Saturday after Thanksgiving) from 11am to 3pm to sign books and meet fans. Koslowski has been an illustrator for more than 30 years, working for Archie Comics on their main titles and as one of the main illustrators of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series. 
Acme will have copies of his new book, F.A.R.M. System as well as some of his Archie and Sonic titles available for purchase and Mr. Koslowski will be signing books and greeting fans. The Sonic and Archie works are appropriate for all ages and would make great holiday gifts for elementary age students or Archie or Sonic fans of any age, while F.A.R.M. System is best for teens and adults (more on that below.)

The Book: F.A.R.M. System 

The basics:

F.A.R.M. System is a new full length (about 200 pages) graphic novel from Wisconsin artist Rich Koslowski exploring the concept of what if superheroes were real, and if they had a system something like major league sports for deciding who makes it to the big leagues...and who doesn't? 

F.A.R.M. System contains some violence and bloodshed and does not contain nudity or extreme language. While books aren't age rated the same way movies and shows are, the content in F.A.R.M. System is about equivalent to what might be in a PG-13 movie. While I encourage you to buy the book at his event at Acme Comics, it's also available at Amazon (this is an affiliate link):

Our thoughts:

We are looking forward to reviewing this book soon! A copy is headed our way and I'll update soon after it comes.

The Story of Loose Meat Sandwiches

There's nothing better in winter than some cozy comfort food. So, I'm excited to tell you all about Sioux City's signature dish, loose meat sandwiches, along with where to buy them and how to make your own! What is a loose meat sandwich? A loose meat sandwich is, at its core, a loose pile of flavorful ground beef, served on a hamburger bun. Many people refer to it as a tavern or tavern sandwich.  Exact seasoning blend varies by maker, but onion, horseradish, mustard powder, ketchup, pepper, and garlic are common, as is a pickle to top, and it should be loose, not in a patty, and fairly dry rather than saucy like a sloppy joe. History of the Loosemeat Sandwich The loose meat sandwich was created in Sioux City in about 1924, although there doesn't seem to be a clear historical record of who made it first. Miles Inn and Ye Olde Tavern were certainly selling it very early on accordingly to local legend, and it's likely the dish was invented at one or the other. Cho

the story of Sioux City Sarsaparilla

One of the most widely known "Sioux City" things actually isn't a Sioux City thing! If you've seen the movie The Big Lebowski, you may have caught this scene: And Sioux City Sarsaparilla is real (and it really is a good one!) Here's the full story on Sioux City Sarsaparilla: What is Sioux City Sarsaparilla? Sioux City Sarsaparilla is the signature drink from White Rock's Sioux City line . In 1973, White Rock president Albert Morgan wanted to start a western inspired line of classic American soft drinks, with a frontier feel. He chose Sioux City as his inspiration! Sioux City Sarsaparilla is known as "the Grandaddy of all root beers" and has a creamy taste somewhere between root beer and cream soda. And it's the most bought sarsaparilla in the US! Is Sioux City Sarsaparilla made in Sioux City? Nope. Sioux City Sarsaparilla is actually made in New York by White Rock Beverages ! The company actually started not too f
