View from the Gutters: Blacksad

On this week's episode of View from the Gutters the topic is award winning noir comic, Blacksad.




This week on View from the Gutters, our topic work is Blacksad, by Juan Díaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido. Blacksad is originally a European comic, starring the eponymous P.I., John Blacksad in a series of three cases.
 
Set in 1950s America and populated with anthropomorphic animals, Blacksad is an excellent example of the Noir genre, rendered in lavish style which has garnered significant critical attention. Blacksad is both beautiful and moving, as it explores some of the most tragic elements of middle century America.
 
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born, Gotham Central, XIII, Batman: The Killing Joke, Casanova, and Thor: God of Thunder for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Batman: The Killing Joke.
 
Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Eric Manix, Matt McGinnis, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
