Featuring some of the most gorgeous artwork I’ve ever seen, and scripting that would make Philip Marlowe proud, Blacksad is probably the best comic you’ve never heard of. Republished in English earlier this year by Dark Horse, the critically and commercially successful story follows private detective John Blacksad through three separate cases dealing with classic noir trappings like murder, kidnapping, and Cold War hysteria. It’s a brilliant collection, and is a book that every single person should be reading.
