Synopsis

Detective John Blacksad returns, with a new case that takes him to a 1950s New Orleans filled with hot jazz and cold-blooded murder! Hired to discover the fate of a celebrated pianist, Blacksad finds his most dangerous mystery yet in the midst of drugs, voodoo, the rollicking atmosphere of Mardi Gras, and the dark underbelly that it hides! * Features an extensive making-of section, with tons of prelim sketches and watercolor studies. * 2011 Eisner and Harvey Award-winner!

Juanjo Guarnido (born in 1967 in Granada, Spain) is a Spanish illustrator and the co-author or the Blacksad series. Guarnido studied painting at the Art school of Granada, he studied there painting. During his studies, he also collaborated on several fanzines and published some drawings at Comics Forum-Planeta de Agostini, the Spanish edition of Marvel comics. At that time, though, he decided not to pursue a career in comics because he did not believe there was a broad enough Spanish market to enable him to earn a living. In 1990, he left Granada to Madrid, where he worked on a TV series for 3 years. On the very first day he spent there, he met his future Blacksad partner, Juan Diaz Canales. He did not make a return to comics for some years, however. Following his tenure in Granada, he moved to Paris to take a job with Walt Disney Studios

Broken Frontier

This is the second Blacksad release, with the original tome collecting the first three tales, and Dark Horse must receive some kind of award for bringing English translations of these daring comics to the world.
