'The Ukkometsola pig farm is in danger of a bankrupt and the taxes of farm legacy wait to get paid. Are the three heir brothers able to bring the farm to glory again? The olderst brother Arvo wants to save the farm and his two multi-problemed bros Arvi and Aake. The farm won't run with traditional meat production - the pigs must make money also when alive. Is pig milk answer to all the problems?

Ukkometsola is a graphic novel on pig milk, capitalism, greediness, racism and depression but also a book on perseverance, empathy and hope. It's the third graphic novel by the artist, who's known for his dark & obscene humour. Latva-Nikkola's (b. 1977) work also includes animation, music videos, paintings and performances.

The comics are in Finnish with English translations along the bottom.'
