Oink Heaven's Butcher was a graphic novel I published in the mid 90's, I'm giving it a major digital overhaul..one panel at a time. New art, new story additions, entirely new pages and sequences that were cut from the original. I will post the finished pages throughout it's development here on this blog.

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.
