September 16, 2009Beasts of Burden: The Gathering Storm

Take a gang of dogs (and a couple cats), a mysterious adventure story, award-winning writing and illustration, give it all a good shake, and what do you get?

You get Beasts of Burden, a new comic series (based on an Eisner Award-winning story) from writer Evan Dorkin and artist Jill Thompson, released today by Dark Horse. It’s a beautifully illustrated friendship/mystery/horror/action/heroism tale replete with talking animals and butt-sniffin’ jokes. Awesome.

This art? I love it. CHECK OUT THAT CREEPY SKULL IN THE BACKGROUND!! Watch out, pups!!
