Swine

Illustrated by Alain Mauricet

After serving time for the murder of his beloved wife, Ellis is released from prison and teams up with his sister-in-law to hunt down the demonic beings that were truly responsible for his wife’s death: Pigs!

 

Ellis Rafferty spent seven years in prison after being wrongly convicted for the murder of his wife, Becky. Now released, he seeks to avenge her death. Joining forces with Becky’s sister, Zoey, they hit the road to take on the most pernicious threat in human history: bloodthirsty, cunning, immortal demons originally cast into the bodies of swine—and they are Legion. Ellis and Zoey travel the country to put a stop to the pigs’ murderous rampage, leaving carnage in their wake in this horror story with a dark-comedy cream filling.
