    Stein- thanks so much for your comment, it's true what you say, you might be right...to my knowledge I've never even heard of anyone doing something like this..it is a but nuts, isn't it? Your post is like my own internal argument leading up to this. I'm turning 40 this year, maybe this is my mid-life crisis? I'm a pretty simple person when it comes to philosophy about art and creation, but I can tell you what got me to this point of no return...besides enjoying drawing guys punching each other.

    I don't know what your experience has been, but I believe every artist finds themselves in the creative woods at some point, we're a bit lost, and we aren't quite sure which way to go. For me, what I've learned is the only way out of the woods is to follow the thing you've followed your whole creative life...your compass or whatever, and the worst thing to do is to stand still waiting for the path to illuminate...it just won't. Sometimes the compass is pointing off into the dark and you have no idea what is fucking over there.
    This is what my creative compass is telling me to do, which I honestly have a great number of reservations about going this way. I'm doubtful that I will even find a publisher, I can write a long list of reasons why this is probably not a good use of my time...but the damn thing is pointing like crazy, what can you do, turn your back on the thing that has driven your creative decisions your whole life?

    I can be honest with myself about the doubts, once you're committed you've got no other choice than to push on, what's the alternative, for me it's what it's been for the past 10 years, the feeling of standing still, and a laundry list of excuses why I haven't moved in a direction. So, I'm on the path now, and I'm actually really glad I followed the compass...the compass was right, and very little of it has anything to do with photoshop. I'm moving with purpose in a direction, with a project near and dear to my heart, what lies over that hill, I have no idea..does life as a creative being ever get better?

    That's a mean pig you got there... brutal and interesting to read and watch.
    Follow your compass buddy he didn't let you down so far did it?
    I really love the remake of this, it brings atmosphere and more life to the whole story, I think for people who have not read the original oink like myself could be a real treat.

    I completely understand What you are saying sir..... Sometimes you gotta what you gotta do...
    And I am loving this comic now.... I liked the earlier version too.... it was so dark and dirty but this is just as good. Its still dirty and dark, but its become wiser;for lack of a better word.
    Godspeed

    A fan.

    This is a compelling undertaking for many reasons. Thanks for sharing your process.

    I think, overall, the change is for the better (the palette on that cover is so tasty!) and it's cool to see the things you've learned applied to old material. The matured sense of color and light is really apparent throughout.

    In a few cases, I think you've upped the rendering and color sensibilities at the cost of some readability.
    {Example}

    It's a hard trade-off, especially because the original had that great pulpy, punky, underground feel. Kudos for being un-a-feared to take it in a new direction and I look forward to more!

    BTW, are you attacking these chronologically or in some other order?

    I missed the first edition (1996), but this new one I will Not. Great atmosphere and style transformation!
