First Line: "There are mornings when you have trouble digesting your breakfast..."

It stretched my imagination quite a bit to settle into the world of Blacksad. It is full of animals who walk and talk like men, which of course allows for quite a bit of symbolism and interpretation. Blacksad, despite the fact that he is a cat, is your classic noir mystery lead - lonely, bitter, fighting against a world full of dirty cops and thugs. The artistry and story create a completely engaging tale that held my interest, even though this isn't they type of story I typically enjoy. I was always a little bothered by the fact that the male animals were fully covered in hair but that the naked women animals seemed to be hairless... But overall it was an excellent read.
