Synopsis: It is the year 2040 and tremendous developments in modern medicine have led to saving human lives through xenotransplantation (animal organ transplant). With a serious shortage of human heart donors, a team of American scientists from United Revive succeed in genetically engineering a special breed of pig that they then clone for organ transplant. Upon successful clinical trials, the U.S. government approves the company’s application to set up factory farms to produce clones of the special breed of pigs. One of the first recipients of a cloned pig heart, 15-year old Ernie, runs away from home with her original pig when she discovers that her mother, M, plans on turning the pig over to the company. At heart of this comic series are two primary ethical issues: animal rights and what it means to be human. The protagonist, Ernie, is a hybrid with a cloned pig heart facing an existential crisis: What am I? Am I human or pig or both?
