Praise for Beasts of Burden:
“Dorkin’s script captures the well-meaning, dopey sentiments we attribute to our dogs and cats’ thoughts, and Thompson’s art finds a middle ground between storybook sweetness and EC Comics chills. It’s a lot of fun, and ideal for kids who don’t mind a little gore and ghosts with their adorable animals.”—The A.V. Club
“[Beasts of Burden is] rapidly becoming one of my favorite comics.”—NEIL GAIMAN (The Sandman)
“I imagine a just world, where Beasts of Burden is ten times as popular as Twilight.”—GAIL SIMONE (Wonder Woman)
