I’m really excited about the announcement that Blacksad is returning.  We reviewed the first collection for the Major Spoilers Podcast last year, and now we get even more John Blacksad.

Detective John Blacksad returns, with a new case that takes him to a 1950s New Orleans filled with hot jazz and cold-blooded murder! Hired to discover the fate of a celebrated pianist, Blacksad finds his most dangerous mystery yet in the midst of drugs, voodoo, the rollicking atmosphere of Mardi Gras, and the dark underbelly that it hides!

Though there are many who are turned off by anthropomorphic animals, this book is so well done, that those people will quickly discover that the book and stories are more than just walking, talking dogs and cats.

Blacksad: Silent Hill by Juan Díaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido arrives July 11, 2012 from Dark Horse Comics.

      Furries aren’t so bad once you understand what makes them tick. For example Blacksad falls under the sub group who refer to them selves as Anthros (non sexual anthropomorphic animals) as opposed to Furrys, to who it is more akin to a fetish.

      on a side note “The more you knowwwww…”
