A Pigman of one's imagination
Bereft of context, the name "Pigman" doesn't mean anything in particular; I see it and I conjure up a vision of someone like Python's Mr. Creosote, with a name like J. Featherstonehaugh (probably pronounced something like "Fanshaw") Pigman.
The main character in The Infidel, the upcoming graphic novel by the ex-Muslim Bosch Fawstin, is another ex-Muslim cartoonist. The one who is a character in the book creates "Pigman," a ruthless counter-jihad superhero, as a response to 9/11. His creating the Pigman comic book brings him face to face with the enemy: his born-again Muslim brother, who has become a jihadist.
It will be a while until all the chapters are released, but I suspect it ends with our bacon being saved.
Disclosure: Mr Fawstin wrote me to tell me about the project; no other consideration was involved.Posted at 6:55 AM to Almost Yogurt
