About this title

Synopsis:

In a dark, oppressive future, pig-men work tirelessly feeding a society they cannot fathom as slaves of human masters. When Oink realizes that the dogma being forced on them is all lies, he undertakes a path of revenge and revelation.

Review:

Oink: Heaven's Butcher is somehow both a sick continuation of an Orwellian fantasy and an inversion of Planet of the Apes, except with pigs. How so? In a dark, oppressive future society where concepts such as "day" and "month" have been long forgotten, the church-turned-state has decided to secretly breed humans with pigs to form a slave society. When one of the pig slaves realizes that the dogma being forced on them is all lies, he undertakes a path of revenge and revelation. Every page of Oink: Heaven's Butcher is painted in full color in a style reminiscent of John Bolton and Simon Bisely. John Mueller has an interesting take on a fairly standard allegory, and the last three pages are so good that they bring the story up a notch.
