  • Private investigator John Blacksad is up to his feline ears in mystery,digging into the backstories behind murders, child abductions, and nuclearsecrets. Guarnido's sumptuously painted pages and rich cinematic style bringthe world of 1950s America to vibrant life, with Canales weaving infascinating tales of conspiracy, racial tension, and the "red scare" Communistwitch hunts of the time. Guarnido reinvents anthropomorphism in these pages,and industry colleagues no less than Will Eisner, Jim Steranko, and Tim Saleare fans!

    Whether John Blacksad is falling for dangerous women or getting beaten towithin an inch of his life, his stories are, simply put, unforgettable.

    Dark Horse is very proud to present the first three Blacksad stories, completely relettered to the artist's specifications and with the third album, Red Soul, in English for the very first time.
