Private investigator John Blacksad puts one of his nine lives on the line in this sizzling story of hot jazz and cold-blooded murder. Writer Juan Díaz Canales and artist Juanjo Guarnido join creative forces once again to deliver A Silent Hell, a grim tale of 1950s noir set against the colorful backdrop of New Orleans's fabled music scene. Hired to track down a missing pianist, Blacksad quickly finds himself in the midst of voodoo, drugs, the rollicking atmosphere of Mardi Gras, and the dark underbelly that it hides. In addition to Eisner and Harvey awards, Blacksad and its creators have garnered a lengthy list of international honors, and the graphic albums featuring their feline detective have been translated into over twenty different languages. Now, A Silent Hell hits American shores fresh from its triumphant release in Europe, where it debuted as a best-selling book in France. This edition also includes two never-before-collected Blacksad shorts as well as the complete translation of The Watercolor Story, an extensive art book originally published in France and Spain, filled with preliminary watercolor sketches, with text by illustrator Juanjo Guarnido detailing his meticulous production of the story in this volume.
