Product description

Hardboiled feline detective John Blacksad is back in the latest tour de force from the multiple-award winning duo of writer Juan Diaz Canales and artist Juanjo Guarnido! Taking a much-needed break after the events of "A Silent Hell," Blacksad lands a side job driving a rich Texan's prized yellow Cadillac Eldorado across 1950s America, hitting the back roads from New Orleans to Tulsa. But before long, the car is stolen and Blacksad finds himself mixed up in another murder, with roughneck bikers, a shifty lawyer, one down-and-out Beat generation writer, and some sinister circus folk! When John Blacksad goes on the road, trouble is dead ahead!

Author information

At an early age, Juan Diaz Canales became interested in comics and their creation, which progressed and broadened out to include animated films. At the age of 18, he entered a school for animation. In 1996 he founded, together with three other artists, a company called Tridente Animation. Through this, he has worked with European and American companies, providing plots and scripts for comics and animation films, as well as directing animated television series and animation movies. During this period he met Juanjo Guarnido, with whom Canales decided to create comics based around a private investigator, Blacksad. After contacting several editors, Guarnido and Canales finally signed on with French publisher Dargaud, and in November 2000, "Somewhere Within the Shadows" was published. It was a great success with both critics and the public, and was awarded the Prix de la Decouverte at the Sierre International Comics Festival and the "Avenir" Prize at the Lys-lez-Lannoy Festival, in Switzerland and France respectively. In March 2003 the second album "Arctic-Nation," was released. It was once again a great success, winning the Angouleme Audience Award and the Festival Prize for Artwork in 2004. The third instalment of the Blacksad series, "Red Soul," was published in 2005. In 2006 it was awarded the Angouleme Prize for a Series. The author lives in Madrid, Spain.
