Description

In the great French tradition, we offer an exclusive bookplate when purchasing this title from us. The bookplate, limited to 350 copies, features a color illustration by Juanjo and is signed by Juanjo and Juan Diaz Canales!

This hardcover presents the first three Blacksad albums in English, in a single volume. The third album, Red Soul (Ame Rouge), is published in English for the very first time.

From the publisher:

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

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

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

This internationally acclaimed series has won nearly a dozen prestigious awards -- including the Angouleme BD Festival prizes for Best Series and Best Artwork -- and is a three-time Eisner Award nominee.
