Blacksad. is. the. SHIT.
"I don't read comics," you might say.
"Shut up," I say. "Me either." (With the exception of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, and my other new comic I have soon to read, Hothead Paisan, Homicidal Lesbian Terrorist. Hmm...common theme? All of these comics were gifts. Weird other common theme.)
Don Draper. Except Don Draper is played by Jon Hamm. And Jon Hamm is not a cat. But he is a goof!)
Anyway, Blacksad, the collective creation of former Disney artist Juanjo Guarnido and writer Juan Díaz Canales, is a film-noir style comic set in the late 1950s. All of the characters are anthropomorphic animals. (I'm only telling you that cause I wanted to type anthropomorphic.)
And I'm not going to tell you anything else. Get yourself a six pack and go read it! I promise, you're in for a good time.
Here's a quick little teaser, which really tells you nothing, other than that Blacksad is a pimp.
