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