Dark Horse re-releasing John Mueller’s OINK

June 9th, 2014 by Marc Comments

OINK flies again with a twentieth-anniversary edition of the original graphic novel, newly updated by the book’s creator, John Mueller!

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.

“When I produced the first edition of OINK in the nineties I was very young, and now in the journeyman stage of my career I wanted to tell a story that really reflected all that experience. This is my first creator-owned work in sixteen years. Dark Horse really understands what creator owned means, and I just could not be more excited about the future for OINK,” notes Mueller.

Re-edited and repainted with entirely new sequences of story and art, Mueller’s OINK is set to open readers’ eyes to the sometimes terrible and brutal world in which they live.

“The new edition really reflects everything I love about art, fiction, and comics. I also feel the message of the story has become increasingly relevant as science, technology, and religion seem more and more pervasive in our lives. OINK is a tale of both a monster and a man seeking truth in a very strange world.”

OINK hits stores February 25, 2015.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
