Out this week is Beasts of Burden, the gorgeous graphic novel by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson about dogs who fight mystical forces. (But that description doesn’t do the series justice, or attest to the immense creative skill on display here.) The book collects the four issue miniseries along with the earlier short stories from the various Dark Horse Book of … anthologies. This complete story, “Stray”, provided by Dark Horse, originally appeared in The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings. Enjoy!
