Attention: Everyone

Probably the best news coming out of NYCC was Dark Horse's announcement of a four issue series from Evan Dorkin & Jill Thompson entitled "Beasts of Burden," continuing the supernatural adventures of the neighborhood pets from the Dark Horse "Book of..." anthologies.

This series is really quite special - effortlessly gliding from hilarious and charming to terrifying and heartbreaking - and is one the best uses of the talking animal schtick anyone has done in a long time.

Some of Dorkin's and Thompson's strongest work - so far seen by an enthusiastic few, but very much deserving of a full on mass pop culture breakout - so do what you can to support the series, and then you can brag that you were there when.
