Storytime, /co/. Today for your viewing pleasure, I bring Beasts of Burden, a lovely little series with cute animals, witches, ghosts, zombies, rat cults, and horrible undead earth creatures.

The original story of the pets of Burden Hill was made up of shorts published in Dark Horse's "Book Of" anthologies. It didn't really hit its stride until the third part in "The Book of the Dead", and it was that story that later lead Dark Horse to give writer Evan Dorkin and artist Jill Thompson a four issue miniseries. With an upcoming trade of all seven parts, and a Hellboy crossover in the future, I thought it'd be a neat post.

(small note: the first three stories, I used the images from the Dark Horse site, as my Books are in storage. Sorry about the sizes.)

I can't speak for all outlets, but in the circles I run, there was surprisingly little advertising from Dark Horse when the miniseries started last year. Even though I loved the originals, I wouldn't have known about it had someone not posted about it.
