“Full of dry wit and sly references to cultural icons … This is some of the best art in the business, and every panel can be framed and put on a wall.” –
Behind the Panels

Hard-boiled feline detective John Blacksad is back in the latest tour de force from the multiple-award-winning duo of writer Juan Díaz Canales and artist Juanjo Guarnido!

Taking a much-needed break after the events of
A Silent Hell, Blacksad lands a side job driving a rich Texan’s prized yellow Cadillac Eldorado across 1950s America, hitting the back roads from New Orleans to Tulsa. But before long, the car is stolen and Blacksad finds himself mixed up in another murder, with roughneck bikers, a shifty lawyer, one down-and-out Beat generation writer, and some sinister circus folk! When John Blacksad goes on the road, trouble is dead ahead!

• Eisner and Harvey award-winner!

• Available in English for the very first time!

• Translated by Katie LaBarbera and Neal Adams!

• Introduction by Neal Adams!

“Guarnido’s exceptional ink and watercolor style draws in readers immediately, but it’s Canales’ intricate and moody storytelling that keeps them coming back.” –

Comics Alliance

•Comics website and blog

“Guarnido and Canales’ mastery is such that Blacksad remains nothing short of engrossing, as transportive and immersive a reading experience you will encounter… A special series.”

Forbidden Planet

•Comics retailer

“The great thing about Blacksad stories is that they manage to incorporate serious issues with a bit of depth as well as being an entertaining genre read, without it ever feeling as if things have been shoe-horned in for the sake of weight or meaning.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“Writer Díaz and illustrator Guarnido take the detective noir genre and breathe new life into it with a trio of anthropomorphic animal gumshoe dramas centering around John Blacksad, a methodical PI who conducts his investigations in early 1950s America … Blacksad is a comics classic.”
