Over two years ago, Phil Boyce set out to review every issue of eighties sensation Oink! comic on the anniversary of its publication date. Today, he reaches the final issue with an affectionate appraisal of its contents. Is this the end of The Oink! Blog then? Not at all. Wait and see what Phil has planned next. You can read his latest review here:
I must admit I haven't re-read Oink! since it was published, so even as a regular contributor I've had fond memories stirred by Phil's reviews of each issue. At the time, those of us working on the comic knew it was good, but perhaps we were too close to it to realize just how good it was. Revisiting it from a modern-day perspective has given me a fresh appreciation of the work of my colleagues and the editors. It really was a unique, thought-provoking, and (most importantly) funny comic that shied away from formula to produce some memorable strips.
