Page 45 Review by Jonathan

"Hey, dumb-ass, where do you think you're going?
"That's what you get, pal!"

Now… I can confirm that walking to the superhero shelves situated right at the back of the Page 45 shop are not likely to cause spontaneous human combustion, or indeed spontaneous ghoul combustion either, but don't just walk past all the lovely real mainstream comics will you?

Right, here's the publisher to explain precisely which well-known fright-fighter is giving life… well, undead lessons to frightful fiends with his newfound canine chums instead of battling alongside the BPRD…

"The dogs and cats protecting Burden Hill from supernatural harm find themselves facing new threats and mysteries, including a vengeful demon, an invisible killer, and an enigmatic flock of lost sheep. As a growing evil threatens to overwhelm their town, the animals find themselves some unlikely allies, most notably a seasoned paranormal investigator named... Hellboy.

This volume collects the comic-book series Beasts of Burden: Sacrifice, Beasts of Burden: Neighbourhood Watch, Beasts of Burden: Hunters and Gatherers, Beasts of Burden: What the Cat Dragged In, and Beasts of Burden: The Presence of Others #1 and #2."

Most of this material came out before the recent mini-series that formed the excellent BEASTS OF BURDEN: WISE DOGS & ELDRITCH MEN HC, with the exception of The Presence of Others #1 and #2. Still, it now means all the Beasts Of Burden comics that have been released so far have now been collected.

The art for the cover and chapter title pages here are by Jill Thompson (and a spooky touch of Mignola). The art for the stories in this collection is primarily by Benjamin Dewey with some Jill Thompson.





Jill Thompson did all the art on the original run BEASTS OF BURDEN: ANIMAL RIGHTS SC which was reviewed at length by our Stephen. Whereas Ben Dewey did the more recent BEASTS OF BURDEN: WISE DOGS & ELDRITCH MEN HC.

I can't decide which art style I prefer, they're both of impeccable pedigree.
