When feline detective John Blacksad lands a side job driving a rich Texan’s Cadillac across 1950’s America, he thinks it will provide him with a well-earned rest. Before long, however, the car is stolen and Blacksad finds himself caught up in another murder mystery.
Roughneck bikers, a shifty lawyer, a down-and-out Beat generation writer and some sinister circus folk form part of this troubled journey.
A tightly-written story and sumptuous artwork form another instantly appealing instalment, a twisted anthropomorphic take on the great American road trip.
