This product is huge value for money. You get three graphic novels in one, in an oversized, full colour, hardcover book. If you want to start reading Blacksad, this is the book you should start off with, followed by Blacksad: A Silent Hell.
You follow John Blacksad, a feline humanoid and Private Investigator, as he takes on various cases. I loved it.
The story is told in classic murder mystery / cops and robbers style. A similar atmosphere to "Dick Tracey", "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and "Fish Police" the cartoon. The characters are anthropomorphic, in that they are animals that walk and talk like humans. I purchased this purely because I am an anthropomorphic comic book fan. If you like "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", or "Usagi Yojimbo" you will love this book. But because the artwork is so realistic, I think it would appeal to any comic book fans craving a serious read. What I love about this series is how seriously detailed it is.
The creators put as much realism into the characters and story as any human based story does, but the characters just happen to be animals. All the animal puns are quite funny, but it's dark too. Blacksad is a tough, darkly portrayed character, but he's also the hero.
If you love comic books, cats, animals, murder mystery or just a good "tail", then I think this would be a great choice.
I recommend this and hope for more. ^w^
