6. Juli 2010 Beasts of Burden (Buch 1)
Welcome to Burden Hill — a picturesque little town adorned with white picket fences and green, green grass, home to a unique team of paranormal investigators. Beneath this shiny exterior, Burden Hill harbors dark and sinister secrets, and it's up to a heroic gang of dogs — and one cat — to protect the town from the evil forces at work. These are the Beasts of Burden Hill — Pugs, Ace, Jack, Whitey, Red and the Orphan — whose early experiences with the paranormal (including a haunted doghouse, a witches' coven, and a pack of canine zombies) have led them to become members of the Wise Dog Society, official animal agents sworn to protect their town from evil. This turns out to be no easy task, as they soon encounter demonic cannibal frogs, tortured spirits, a secret rat society, and a bizarre and deadly resurrection in the Burden Hill cemetery — events which lead to fear and heartbreak as our four-legged heroes discover that the evil within Burden Hill is growing and on the move. Can our heroes overcome these supernatural menaces? Can evil be bested by a paranormal team that doesn't have hands? And even more importantly, will Pugs ever shut the hell up?

Adventure, mystery, horror, and humor thrive on every page of Beasts of Burden — a comic-book series that will capture readers' hearts and haunt their dreams.

Award-winning comics creators Evan Dorkin (Milk and Cheese) and Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother) first introduced these very special investigators in The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings and the other Dark Horse Book of . . . anthologies, for which they won coveted Eisner Awards for Best Short Story and Best Painter. Those first tales are collected here, along with the comic series Beasts of Burden issues #1–#4.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good stories, not so good lettering 13. Januar 2011
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Länge: 0:38 Minuten
It's rare to see animals as main characters in comics. That's one of the main reason I picked up the book. The other reason is because the art from Jill Thompson looks good.

The general premise is about a group of dogs and cats dealing with seemingly supernatural events that are happening around their neighbourhood. The story is darker than I thought but well written and told. The characters have personalities and the stories are fun and exciting.

One thing that really bugged me is the lettering used. The whole story is told in a series of short chapters - maybe that was how the original comic was released but I'm not sure. The lettering is inconsistent throughout the chapters. There are the all uppercase (typical), sentence case (not so bad), sentence case but with uppercase height (worst of the lot in terms of legibility), and sometimes the animals will have their own unique lettering style. The inconsistency of lettering is quite jarring across chapters.

The comic overall is entertaining but the lettering takes away a bit of the experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ist mal was Anderes... 28. Juli 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Idee mit Tieren als Hauptdarsteller im Kampf gegen das Böse gefiel mir sehr gut.
Der Autor schafft es auch ihnen Persönlichkeit und Tiefe einzuhauchen, man schliesst die Truppe recht schnell ins Herz!:)
Es findet sogar teilweise eine Charakterentwicklung der Hauptpersonen statt im Laufe der Geschichten...

Die Geschichten sind zum Teil recht heftig, also eher was für Erwachsene und nichts für Kinder,
auch wenn man vom Zeichenstil erst einmal das Gegenteil vermuten würde!
Am Besten hat mir die Geschichte gefallen, in der eine Hundemama die Jungs aufsucht und sie um Hilfe bittet, da ihre zwei Welpen verschwunden sind.
Leider ist diese Story relativ traurig, aber es gibt eine Art "Happy End", so viel sei gesagt!

Bitte mehr davon!:)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Phenominal Horror Comic! 16. Juli 2010
Von Jesse Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book collects the four issue miniseries and three previous short stories. They are all supurbly written and beautifully illustrated (watercolors, folks- not Photoshop) supernatural/horror stories. Please don't be misled by the fact that our main characters are talking animals- there's nothing childish happening between these pages. In fact, parents, you may want to read the whole thing through before offering it to the little ones. I'd give this book a strong PG-13 rating.
The stories have just the right blend of creepy horror, adventure, a dash of comedy relief, and alot of heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Buy this comic! 8. September 2010
Von Rosewater - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The Beasts of Burden is surely one of the greatest comic titles to come out in years, a fantastic combination of elements that don't seem to fit together at first glance.

The world of the book is a sunny, idealic suburb with the dark forces of the supernatural creeping in at the fringes. There to fight back are the eponymous beasts, a group of dogs (and one cat) who find themselves reluctant heroes. Evan Dorkin's writing gives each member of the cast (even characters who only pop up for a few panels) a distinct personality and an arsenel of sharp dialog and Jill Thompson's watercolor art is gorgeous - it looks even better due to this hardcover's slightly oversized dimensions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful visually, and charming to read 29. November 2011
Von Jylene Livengood - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I usually read very fast. Beasts of Burden took me about a ten days however, because I read it slowly, lovingly and with great attention. It supports rereading well too.

As with most graphic novels, the visuals are a large part of the storytelling and they are what catches the eye first.

Visually this book is beautiful - Jill Thompson's style can sometimes seem wispy and insubstantial to me, however this book was a labor of love and it shows. Her love of this work is solidly there in the rich panels, background, and in the naturalistic yet expressive, charming and powerful characters depicted. I honestly think this may be Ms. Thompson's best work to date, though I can only hope for more in this small, richly imagined world.

Mr. Dorkin's writing is powerful. The characters are warm and evocative, the setting by turns exquisitely normal and chilling. When the film Blue Velvet came out, much was made of how David Lynch evoked the normal American surface that we WANT to see in ourselves, and then the wormy things under that surface. For my money, Beasts of Burden mines this vein better. It has less flash and melodrama in most of its situations and even the most fantastic and fictionalized parts of the drama still are so deeply grounded in human and animal behavior to feel familiar and that familiarity is what gives such a punch to the evil and unnatural here. It shows us ourselves in a mirror. Darkly.

This is not a book for children. It will give them nightmares! Kids seldom have the subtlety to see the warmth and power of friendship that balances the darkness here. But for adults, it's a bittersweet touch of childhood's wonder and fear of the dark, coupled with the grown up's realization of the bonds and social ties that help us survive such things, more than any heroics could. The heroics that are here, and there are plenty, are the kind of every day heroics that the reader can identify with, even if presented by a dog a or a cat. This book is about what's dark us, but also what's light.

Wonderful and I would LOVE to see more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A "Must" For People Who Like Things That Are Good 24. Februar 2011
Von ObiWanShinobi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of those rare things that is simple, straightforward and just plain old fashioned fun. I purchased this as I was a huge fan of Evan Dorkin back in the days when he was responsible for Milk & Cheese and Dork! and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this here book.

This doesn't take a lot of explaining. Basically there's a group of suburban house pets (mostly dogs), that band together to protect their neighborhood from a host of supernatural occurrences.

You know those terrible Disney films where the animals talk and jazz? It's like that, only crossed with Tales From The Crypt/X-Files. What's so great about this book is the way that both Evan Dorkin's writing and Jill Thompson's watercolor style of illustration create this neat world of simple creatures dealing with supernatural horrors. And the "horrors" aspect of this is important. As much as this book creates this warm environment of talking dogs and cats - the stuff they deal with and see is often sad, brutal and fairly gory. But not so gory or intense that it would make this "inappropriate" for older kids.

So if you're looking for something cool to read - here you go. This is fun, easily accessible and just plain cool. Totally worth a purchase.

I must say it is pretty cool to see a guy who went from drawing punk/ska comics about tiny, angry dairy products running around brutally maiming New Yorkers, mature into someone capable of writing such a thoughtful and largely innocent work. Not that Milk & Cheese wasn't genius or anything because it sure as hell was.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A doggone good buy 2. September 2010
Von S. Keefe - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I couldn't resist the pun. Sorry.

These shorts were undeniably the best stories in the Dark Horse Presents books, and when I found they were making a four-part miniseries I was beside myself with glee. The story and art combine to create the pathos and heroism we all know and recognize in our canine counterparts. The animal characters retain their dog-ness or cat-ness, while simultaneously creating depth of character and complexity. This title is an example of the current comics scene at its best.
