Beasts of Burden, Volume 1: Animal Rites
Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson
Comic Selection #10
Set in the seemingly sleepy neighborhood of Burden Hill, the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning Beasts of Burden follows a team of five dogs, Ace, Rex, Jack, Whitey and Pugsley, and two cats, a stray named Orphan and a former witch’s familiar named Dymphna, as they investigate paranormal events that begin to plague their neighborhood. Confronting everything from a haunted doghouse to a witches’ coven, as well as a pack of zombie dogs, a horde of demonic cannibal frogs and even a secret society of rats, the Beasts of Burden strive to uncover the dark secrets lurking beneath Burden Hill. Acclaimed for its writing and Jill Thompson’s award-winning artwork, Beasts of Burden has also been praised for its ability to blend together humor and dark subject matter as it puts its own spin on the supernatural horror genre.
Tom King and Gabriel Walta
