This Week’s Finest: Beasts of Burden: What the Cat Dragged In

367909._SX640_QL80_TTD_By Evan Dorkin, Sarah Dyer & Jill Thompson

Honestly this selection should not surprise anyone. Ever since I first discovered Beasts of Burden, I have been a huge fan. The series tells the story of a band of dogs and cats who protect their town Burden Hill from nefarious supernatural entities. Over the course of a mini-series and several one-shots, writer Evan Dorkin has taken this fantastical concept and refined it into a compellingly humane narrative. What could have been fun one-off story (it all begin with the idea of writing a haunted dog house tale for an anthology) is instead something much deeper. Not that Beasts lacks levity, quite the opposite in fact. What makes it stand above every other comic this week is how well it blends the light-hearted with the poignant, all stunningly conveyed by Jill Thompson’s painted artwork.
