It has reached the point where I need to move my inventory of PLASTIC FARM books out of my house and into storage. One of the largest portions of that inventory is PLASTIC FARM #1-12. In order to reduce the amount I’ll need to put into storage, I’m putting those single issues online for what I’ve been selling them for at conventions.
I’ve also got some reasonably priced original artwork in the store as well, and once you finish reading 1-12 you’re gonna want to continue by reading PLASTIC FARM: FERTILIZER and PLASTIC FARM: SEASONS OF GROWTH IN THE FIELDS OF DESPAIR.
