Celebrating his 20th anniversary in 2020, Blacksad has become one of the most beloved and recognized comics characters around the world, with millions of copies in print of his first five adventures.
Backsad: They All Fall Down comes out in English digitally from Europe Comics on October 20th, with a print edition coming in 2022 from Dark Horse.
“What’s News” gives not only an inside look at Blacksad’s 20 year history, but a special sepia toned preview of
They All Fall Down. The story finds detective John Blacksad in New York City involved in nefarious goings on with unions, organized crime, and the dark parts of the city, including Solomon, a construction magnate with many plans for the city.
(Can I just say: I can relate?)
You can buy a copy of “What’s News” for a mere 2,49€ – and if you’re a fan of Blacksad – or just great comics art – you will absolutely adore this English language tribute to the character and his world. It’s also a sign of the increased global reach of comics that such a detailed tribute to the character has been released in English.
And here’s a peak at not only What’s News, but They All Fall Down, exclusively for The Beat courtesy of Europe Comics.
