The Goddess of Pigland by Mario Zecca

Forenk, the unlucky son of pig farmers, shamed into leaving home as an outcast, begins an odyssey to uncover his destiny as the last mortal capable of fathering divine beings. Along the way he meets his guardians and companions, erotic angels and slightly deranged magic-users who attempt to protect Forenk from his nemesis, a wrathful witch goddess and her demons, including a possessed psycho squirrel ancestor spirit, whose aim is to win back the lands lost in time out of mind. The Goddess of Pigland is a humorous and mature illustrated satire of the hero's journey, mythic archetypes and the fantasy genre. An legendary epic filtered through absurd humor and Freudian dreams.

The Goddess of Pigland would be generally classified as fantasy satire. It is written with ironic and sometimes pointed humor, especially in poking fun at heroic archetypes. A true hero's journey takes place under the veneer of comedy as the story touches on real issues of human emotion and growth.

The narrative becomes more complex and the characters develop accordingly as the plot progresses. Spinkled into this archaic setting are moments of gritty violence and even a bit of horror, however, the story consistently returns to heavy handed humor.

As an author, I strove to avoid extraneous text, perhaps meant to meet editorial measurements that had frustrated me as a reader. I wrote The Goddess of Pigland over a twelve year period, writing only when I had something to write about.
