I had this dream last night and it was a story called The Butcher's Boy. The story was about a little pig boy being raised by a butcher, he feeds the pigs and takes care of the shop, but he's only allowed out at night and he can never see where the pigs go...at some point the Butcher who loves the boy either dies or the boy sees him slaughtering the pigs and he runs off into a city filled with people who are horrified by him. He runs and runs until he meets a little girl who doesn't seem to care that he's a pig-boy, she befriends him and convinces him he's special...well her parents find out about the pig boy and put him in a barrel and throw him in a river to not be associated with such filth..it will probably twist and turn a bit more, but it ends wit the boy thinking he's escaping and running down the road to this point...only to see factories stretching to the horizon....or something like that. It was a powerful dream.
Here's the final Angel's splash page, pretty much redesigned the page. This first part of the second act had a lot of rework, but I'm glad I'm starting in the middle so I can really kill the last issue next and then just make the first 30 pages my best work.
