The Deal: Evan Dorkin's demon-hunting dogs return for the second issue of their monthly series. This month, the Beasts try to help a fellow dog find her lost puppies — with pretty horrific results.

The Verdict: I'll say it again: I’m blown away by this series. Seriously, stop what you're doing and go buy this book, like, NOW. It's just so unexpected. It looks like a children's book, but reads like some twisted horror flick. It's the perfect combination of action, scary shit, cute animals, tragedy, humor ... and more scary shit. I'm in love with what Dorkin and Thompson are doing here. Now, get your ass up and go buy it!
