blacksad_a-silent-hell_2012_01

Blacksad is a unique detective noir series created by writer Juan Díaz Canales (writer) and artist Juanjo Guarnido (artist) using 1950s America as the setting and anthropomorphic people as the characters. It is an internationally acclaimed series, winning three Eisner nominations and the Angoulême Prize for Artwork.

With cat detective John Blacksad as our protagonist, we experience beautifully crafted mystery stories under the backdrop of poignant historical touchstones, such as segregration and the Red Scare, all shown through Guarnido’s expertly crafted water colored artwork. If you are even a casual fan of this genre, this (currently) five-book series is a must-read for you.
