Genius in furs: Okay, maybe the Velvet Underground wordplay is a bit of a stretch. Anyway. At Ninth Art, Marcos Castrillón pens an appreciation for Juan José Guarnido and Blacksad:

"But BLACKSAD has it all. Instead of taking the sort of liberties with physics that the anthropomorphic characters and fantastic settings afford him, Guarnido takes the other road, and turns up the level of detail of its art. The world does not seem real. It is real. Guarnido's experience as a cartoon animator allows him to make every expression and every movement seem natural and lifelike, despite the cartoony origin of the characters."
