I've been driving everyone crazy recommending the new Dark Horse comic book series Beasts of Burden by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson. Featuring characters and concepts introduced in three Dark Horse Book of... volumes, this is a limited series. Jill Thompson's painted art is gorgeous and evocative. Evan Dorkin's story is just as great as the previous three chapters. Speaking of the previous three chapters, they are available online to read here. Let's hope that Dark Horse will reprint these short stories in a stand-alone volume.
