Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"He looked like the beast of death." — Cydnee Dubrof, on the dog that killed lacrosse coach Diane Whipple

"I thought she was just a quirky lady. She was well-dressed, she drove a nice car. She didn't seem to be unstable." — a neighbor describing Marilyn Barletta, the Petaluma cat lady

Putting the cat back in catastrophe and the dog in doggoned, Pet Noir entertains (and informs) by turning traditional noir storytelling on its furry little ear: These illustrated tales explore America's obsession with true crime by taking a darkly comedic approach while raising awareness about animal welfare.

Conceived and written by Shannon O'Leary and illustrated by today's finest comic book artists, the stories in Pet Noir shed fur on some of the odder crimes committed in recent years, including the notorious San Francisco deadly dog mauling, the infamous Petaluma cat lady, and the heartbreaking saga of Leo the Bichon Frise's untimely demise at the hands of a savage road-raging lunatic. Pet Noir is a perfect read for true-crime fans, pet lovers, animal rights activists, vegans, and graphic novel aficionados.

Featured artists include Andy Ristaino, Lev Yilmaz, Trevor Alixopolous, John Isaacson, August Bournique, Ben Claassen III, Bitter Pie, Fly, Fred Einaudi, Jen Feinberg, Joan Reilly, MariNaomi, N8 Van Dyke, Paul Musso, Peter Conrad, and Ric Carrasquillo.

Review:

"Pet Noir is fantastic! The writing is clever, the artwork original, and the stories proving the old adage tht the truth is way stranger than fiction. I loved it!" Jane Weidlin, The Go-Go's

Synopsis:

Shocking true pet crime stories that rocked the nation.
