Dark Horse to Publish Complete Blacksad Hardcover in 2020

Dark Horse Comics have announced their plans to release a complete complete collection of Juan Díaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido’s award-winning and internationally acclaimed BLACKSAD series in Blacksad: The Complete Stories.

With the classic hardboiled noir series – featuring beloved anthropomorphic cat detective, John Blacksad – celebrating its 20th year of publication, readers will now be able to experience five of Blacksad’s biggest cases in a single comprehensive hardcover volume with new material never published in English.

Blacksad is constantly up to his ears in trouble. Sticking his nose into mystery after mystery, often getting involved with women almost as dangerous as the criminals he thwarts. Be it solving the murder of a famous actress or keeping nuclear weapons out of terrorist hands, Blacksad’s grim work often provides a mirror for real world conflict and human issues, never turning a blind eye to racism, political tensions, or brutally sudden violence.

Díaz Canales and Guarnido redefine the standards for graphic storytelling, carving striking characters that are both animalistic and intimately human. Guarnido’s sumptuously painted pages and rich cinematic style bring the world of 1950s America to life, earning high praise from comics legends like Will Eisner, Stan Lee, Jim Steranko, and Tim Sale!

Blacksad: The Complete Stories collects story pages from Blacksad, Blacksad: A Silent Hell, and Blacksad: Amarillo, and goes on sale July 1, 2020.  Be sure to pick up a copy of this 280-page collection for $29.99.
