Not long after "Blacksad" returned to American publication via Dark Horse's collection of the series' first three volumes, select artwork from its fourth installment allegedly began sprouting online. Flash forward to September 1, though, and fans of Juan Diaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido's anthropomorphic feline detective can pretty easily discern that the previous art is not only legit, but a pretty hearty taste of what's to come in "Blacksad" Vol. 4 titled (at least overseas) "L'Enfer, Le silence" thanks to multiple new online trailers.The trailers for "L'Enfer, Le silence" (literally "Hell, Silence" in English) point to a September 17 release in France by native publisher Dargaud. Dark Horse hasn't announced an official release date for their potential port, though, meaning that semester of seventh grade French I took may be pushed well past its limits if I can't get my hands on a copy soon.

Watch a smattering of new trailers below for some flickers of the tale's especially menacing new villain.
