Dark Horse to publish John Mueller’s remastered ‘OINK’

oink-heavens butcherDark Horse announced over the weekend at Phoenix Comicon that it will release the 20th-anniversary edition of OINK: Heaven’s Butcher, re-edited and remastered by creator John Mueller with new sequences.

Influenced by George Orwell, Pink Floyd and Simon Bisley, among others, OINK debuted in 1995 from Kitchen Sink Press, telling the dystopian story of pig-men who work as slaves to feed their human masters. But when Oink witnesses the execution of one of his comrades, he violently rebels and sets out on a quest for the truth about the creation of his race and revenge against its oppressors.

OINK is the foundation of my career, and I couldn’t really think of a better way to take another swing at comics,” Mueller, who’s been working on the remastered edition for more than six years, said in a 2013 interview. “I’m really proud of the work I’m doing for it, and I think it will lead to good things. There are also more OINK stories, and so I thought if I was going to do that I wanted to reset the foundation.”

OINK will be released in February. You can see art from the remastered edition on Mueller’s website and on the OINK blog.

This is such an incredible comic! Too bad we only got two minis. Here’s hoping the 20th anniversary edition does exceedingly well, and Mueller is inspired to create some new comics in the series.
