Beasts of Burden: Neighborhood Watch

 BOBA   (Dark Horse, 2012)

and 2012 Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson

Between the world of mortal men and the supernatural realm beyond, stands a brand of heroes, ever vigilant against the terrors which lurk in the shadows and seek to prey upon the helpless. With senses sharpened beyond those of humans, and courage to battle the most terrifying dangers, they are forever on patrol to save those they protect.

We are talking, of course, about dogs (and a particularly brave cat). What the human residents of Burden Hill see as nothing more than a collection of friendly pets is actually the warriors on the frontline between good and evil, and more faithful friends than mankind will ever know.

Created by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson, Beasts of Burden: Neighborhood Watch collects stories which originally ran in Dark Horse Presents #4, 6, and 8 - forming a rather wonderful one-shot which should bring a smile to any lover of animals, and all who suspect that the private lives of dogs are far more interesting than we humans will ever know.
