Still filling in for Alex (our esteemed Uncle Gorby).
Hot on the heals of our Beasts Of Burden: Animal Rites review, I’ve got a link to the first short story from that volume!
Beasts of Burden: Stray was originally published in the Dark Horse Book of Hauntings – the first short story by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson to feature these wonderful animal characters.
Thompson’s work here won her an Eisner Award in 2004 for Best Painter, so you know it’s well worth checking out. Thankfully, the folks at Comics Worth Reading were able to post some nice quality jpgs of all 8 pages for us.
If you are somehow still on the fence about picking this up, I’ve posted some more scans from the hardcover in our review.
