Plastic Farm #4 by Rafer Roberts
Another great, if completely unconnected, issue of Plastic Farm. This one is all about two people, Jack and Emily, who meet in school and fall in love. Theyâ€™re both pilots and one of them goes missing after flying during a hurricane, and Iâ€™m already telling you more about this than you need to know, and Iâ€™m also making it seem like an absolute bore. Well, itâ€™s not, itâ€™s just a straightforward story without many bells and whistles, and there isnâ€™t much I can say about it without giving too much away. If you like his other issues, and you already know that the man has a gift for realistic dialogue and social situations, then you know itâ€™s worth a shot. As for the main underlying story thatâ€™s supposedly going on here, he mentions whatâ€™s coming in the next few issues, and it involves actual recurring characters, so I think weâ€™re getting somewhere. The backup story is from Dennis Culver and is called Astrozombies, which is about, of all things, zombies in outer space. A good few pages of mayhem, which is never really a bad thing.
