A lazy slice-of-life drama, Tales From The Farm is the first volume of writer-artist Jeff Lemire’s trilogy set in Essex County, Ontario. In the opener, a 10-year-old orphan who perennially wears a superhero getup lolls about his uncle’s farm and befriends a gruff gas-station proprietor.

For Fans of…
