Although I haven’t actually read Blacksad yet, (due in large part to no current printings in North America) I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for an affordable copy online. So imagine my surprise when Darkhorse announced their new hardcover due in stores March 24th.
Blacksad is a noir styled graphic novel from Juan Diaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido whose characters are anthropomorphic like Usagi Yojimbo. Blacksad himself is a large cat in a suit and a hard boiled world.
The new Darkhorse book with include all three volumes to date, including the newest book Red Soul which will be translated into English for the first time. Obviously, come March a review will be immanent, so check back for that!
