Foodboy is about loss and hope, friendship and faith, bonds that are tested when the paths of two boyhood friends diverge. Gareth - the eponymous Foodboy - and Ross live in the small Welsh village of Llanparc. The attempt of a visiting troupe of Evangelists to convert them sends Ross into the wilderness. Gareth remains loyal to his friend, leaving food out for him, even when it becomes apparent that Ross is becoming increasingly feral. Foodboy is drawn in Swain's trademark style of exquisite panel compositions.
