It’s Raining Cats, Dogs, and Devils in ‘Beasts of Burden/Hellboy’ [Preview]

Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson’s Beasts of Burden is one of those books that could easily slip under your radar, despite the pedigree of the creators involved. I missed out on it until the fantastic hardcover of their first miniseries dropped, and now I’m hooked. If you want to give it a try, pick up this week’s Beasts of Burden/Hellboy, a crossover with Mike Mignola’s paranormal investigator who teams up with the dogs and cats who protect Burden, and if you’ll pardon the terrible joke, ends up biting off more than he can chew. We’ve got a five-page preview, and a look at the covers from Jill Thompson and Mike Mignola, after the jump.

The paranormal activity in the outwardly charming town of Burden Hill has gone from bad to worse, as seen in Dorkin and Thompson’s hardcover graphic novel Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites. Now the occult–investigating team of dogs (and one cat) need some serious help. Contact with the Wise Dog Society has broken off, leaving the team on its own, as a series of unexplained animal slayings have begun to occur. But magic can work in surprising ways, and help is brought to the team with the unexpected arrival of the World’s Greatest Paranormal Detective.

Evan Dorkin (Milk and Cheese, Bizarro World) and Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother, Magic Trixie) join forces with Mike Mignola (Hellboy, B.P.R.D., Witchfinder, Baltimore) in an amazing one–shot bringing their supernatural worlds together!
