"I'll never be your beast of burden..."

...but I will read more of Beasts of Burden when I pick it up from the shop! I know that I'm slow in going through my piles of comics, but I enjoyed what I've read of this four-issue miniseries from Dark Horse, and I keep re-reading the first two issues. Jill Thompson's artwork is beautiful, and Evan Dorkin really seems to understand the feel of old, scary folklore -- even when he has that lore being explored by domestic animals. Who doesn't love a smarmy pug?
