" Je restai plus d'une heure à observer en silence avant d'ouvrir la bouche et de rompre cet instant magique de création. Cet être à la santé fragile se transformait en tornade quand il sentait dans sa main le contact d'un pinceau et l'odeur de peinture lui collait au museau ".

umm I like the personal touch.

Fitting into slot 30 of Lena's reading challenge. A book with pictures - and what pictures.

So beautiful art, so pointless and thin story.
But the art is really gorgeous, looking at the pictures justifies buying this book.
But the story.... if the story would be even half as good as art, this would be better. Now it is just pointless.


Really enjoying the connections in each volume to different historical events! Not as good as VOl 2 but still, a very enjoyable read.

The third volume, and this time with the almost inevitable theme of communism and the McCarthyism, as these stories, even though they are anthropomorphic and fictitious, are clearly set in the US in the 1950s. It's a good story, with many references to historical events, including an anthropomorphic version of Hitler himself. Makes me think of Jason's excellent book I Killed Adolf Hitler.

And Guarnido's art is as crisp as ever, using the anthropomorphic theme visually in ways I've never seen before. Still, th

The plot is a bit thin, it deserved way more than the fifty something pages, particularly given the rich historical background of this episode. Nevertheless, the art is flawless as usual and I cannot help to be drawn to this fantastic zoo-noir world over and over again.

Blacksad in love.
Set against the backdrop of a McCarthy type era, things do not work out as wished.
This time “high” politics and WWII behaviour consequences are Blacksad’s main worries.
His old benefactor Otto Liebber appears to have secrets of his own. Now seeking redemption for his past. And Blacksad is there to protect him...

This time the scenario (Canales) is not as gruesome and dark as the previous books. But it is again about how people in high places are abusi

A slightly more complex plot than usual kind of supercedes the bounds of the single-issue format, but kudos to Canales for attempting a red scare conspiracy thriller whose apocalyptic implication nevertheless never quiiite hit as well as they should, as well as the ending wrapping perhaps too neata bow on things.

Blacksad gets involved in a case of communist espionage. The volume continues with the fantastically elaborate art that brings the noir aesthetic of the series with the signature anthropomorphic animal characters.

My favorite so far of the Blacksad comics. This one touches on a Cold War theme, which I personally love, and involves much deeper characters from tomes 1 and 2. The love sub-plot is engaging and the end holds a bittersweet taste to it.

Another interesting story, with an historical background quite fascinating once again transposed in this universe.

I love the art style of this series, but I don't have the heart to continue because I'm so peeved by the fact that all the female characters look human.

Again the amazing illustration and this time a more intriguing story, with historical and political elements. The colors are amazing, and the details of the illustration- wow. The characters an the animals chosen for them match well. Loved it!

The quality of the Blacksad-series continues to stay at a top-level, proves the third entry of the black private eye cat. After examining political corruption and Hollywood in the first book and race riots, the Klan and Jim Crow in the second one, the duo Díaz Canales (script) and Guarnido (art) now focus on communist paranoia, the Cold War and beat poetry in “Ame Rouge” (Red Soul).

During an easy-money assignment, John Blacksad bumps into an old friend of the past. Professor Otto Liebber pulle“Ame

While not as good as previous volumes, this is still a highly enjoyable read. Technically, this volume is once again, brilliant. Amazing drawings, full of detail in magnificent environments and stupendous facial expressions. Its a pleasure to just flip the pages, for such fabulous art.
Its the story department that could have used some work. This time Blacksad is in the middle of the communist witch hunt but its all very loosely explored. The plot never seems to come together. The story never de
This time the anthropomorphic private eye Blacksad gets his hard boiled detective act on among early 50's communists and intellectuals. He meets beat poets and scientists, there's lots of smoking, a beautiful but sad woman and a murder. Just like I said about the volume 2 of Blacksad, the stories themselves might not be anything spectacularly original. But they are well told and entertaining.

The thing I like best about these, is the fact that Canales can really tell a story visually,

Perhaps the best in the brilliant Blacksad series. Blacksad are a series of comic books in classic noir style, that deal with historical themes from the forties and fifties. The anamorphic imagery is brilliant, all animals are perfectly fitted to their human character and the drawing style is sublime. It really looks and feels like a classic film noir.

This album deals with the red scare with a brilliant role for Joe McCarthy as an arrogant cock. it also references Ginsburg, Rothko an

Was that... a hint to an overarching story? The length really was perfect for my afternoon picnic break today: long enough to draw me into the story, short enough for me to finish it in half an hour :)

The art is still amazing but the story in this one is more convoluted so it gets "only" 4 stars.

The third issue is the best in my opinion. The story got deeper and the references were even smarter! like that owl Einstein for example.
