There were pigs in the Garden of Eden. One ate from the Tree of Life and has been regretting it ever since. If Methuselah could kill himself, he would, but like Phil Connors in Groundhog Day, his life has become an inescapable thread in time, and he had better learn how to make the best of it. This is the fruit of millennia spent wandering and pondering.
Now heading a herd of feral swine in modern war-torn Iraq (or perhaps Syria), this first issue relates how Meth becomes saddled with two human companions: Ali, a young Iraqi orphan Meth nurses back from near death, and an as yet unnamed American fool-hardy enough to stand between ISIS fighters and a temple they plan to destroy. Meth, a reluctant but instinctive hero, intervenes to save him (an enraged, talking boar and his charmed herd are quite unsettling).
Issue #1 is funny, interested in questions of existence and purpose, and by virtue of its plot, seems set to push into humanity's obsessions: kindness, violence and religion.
I'm curious to see what happens next.
