BEASTS OF BURDEN RETURNS
WITH A CHILLING NEW TALE!
The Eight Time Eisner Award-Winning Series
is Back with Both Bark and Bite!
Welcome back to Burden Hill, where the only things stranger than its guardians are the things they protect it from. Evan Dorkin (Calla Cthulhu, Dork, Blackwood) and Jill Thompson (Fables, Scary Godmother) are back once again at Dark Horse Comics with a thrilling new installment in the Beast of Burden saga.
Beasts of Burden: The Presence of Others follows the eponymous team of paranormal investigator pets as they investigate the weird happenings of Burden Hill. While poking around the neighborhood, an encroaching team of human occult investigators unwittingly disturb the graveyard where the mysterious “Master” lies. What kind of unforeseen consequences await our intrepid detectives?
Praise for Beasts of Burden:
“Dorkin’s script captures the well-meaning, dopey sentiments we attribute to our dogs and cats’ thoughts, and Thompson’s art finds a middle ground between storybook sweetness and EC Comics chills. It’s a lot of fun, and ideal for kids who don’t mind a little gore and ghosts with their adorable animals.”
—The A.V. Club
“[Beasts of Burden is] rapidly becoming one of my favorite comics.”
—NEIL GAIMAN (The Sandman)
“I imagine a just world, where Beasts of Burden is ten times as popular as Twilight.”
—GAIL SIMONE (Wonder Woman)
