This whole limited series (and I wish they will make more) is one of the reasons why Scans_daily is so great. I never would've gotten this on my own or discovered it if not for the posts and love from the board, and I would not have recommended it to other comic book fans who now have picked it up themselves.

The adventures continue in #3.
Dark Horse has the preview.



One images from the preview.


This book really has captured that sense of awesomeness unity and character from the pets, the real sense of risk and danger and deftly conveyed the art amazingly with watercolors.

That said, don't these animals have any reference to pop culture? Didn't they get a sense of Stephen King's "IT", let alone C.H.U.D.?

And for those of you who remember that great Constantine "Hellblazer" comic back in the 80's when John went up against a pack of junkyard dogs, led by a demon possessed massive bulldog. John was able to defeat them, but at the end he mentioned he was more terrified if the demon had possessed rats instead.

The Orphan may find meet what John Constantine fears.

Ditto to the "never would have heard of it without s_d", and it is a joy to know there is more to come, even if I have a bad feeling about the chances of the Getaway Kid living up to his name.

*scratch head* So something like Spider from the Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents then?

Likewise; I heard about this series through SD 1.0 after the first "Dark Horse Book Of..." came out. Love the art, love the stories, and I can't wait for the collection next year. Also, I want to adopt Ace like yesterday.

Ah... Beast of Burden. It's like what would happen if John Constantine was cute little animal.

Which makes what happens to these guys all the more terrifying.

Given that they're, y'know, PETS, and probably don't watch movies or read books much, they probably haven't, no.
And what I'd like to know is, why the hell are they bothering putting a luminescent paste on his chest? He's a CAT - he can see perfectly well in the dark, thank you very much.

No they can't because they still need light to see, less than a human does sure, but down a sewer, there literally IS no light. This is the animal equivalent of giving them a torch.

It depends on just how deep in the sewer you're GOING, really. If you're going way down deep into the very bowels of the earth, then sure, but these are cats, looking for another cat - a witch's cat, sure, but still a cat, and cats have to stay where they can get at food sources, which is largely closer to the surface. (In a big city, this might be different, what with rat infestations everywhere, but it looks to me like this is set in the 'burbs somewhere - it probably doesn't HAVE much in the way of real deep-down sewers.) I wouldn't think they'd be going much deeper than storm drain-level - and at that level, you still have ambient light from manholes and gratings and whatnot.

Given all the magical whatnot the doggie bunch and Orphan have gone through I wouldn't be surprised if they happened onto an underground kingdom of some sort. Or drop into forgotten dungeons under the town. I'd be surprised if they weren't preparing for the totally out of left field scenarios at this point, because those always happen to them.

OK, fair point. It just seems OFF somehwo to be giving see-in-the-dark stuff to animals who already can. It's like the commando-kitties wearing night-vision goggles in 'Cats VS Dogs'.

I would love DH to release a graphic novel of all this! The first stories were amazing, this looks just as good.

Geez, I was google searching through this site for John Constantine, and when I first saw the title of this post, I thought it read Breasts of Burden.

...cause that's a Hellblazer story that needs to be written.
