Baltimore Comic-Con’s Yearbook Returns in 2019 with Blacksad

Artwork by Greg Hildebrandt

Head to Baltimore’s Inner this October 18-20, 2019 for the 20th Anniversary Baltimore Comic-Con, appearing at the Baltimore Convention Center. Tickets to the show are now available!

The annual tradition, the Baltimore Comic-Con Yearbook, returns in 2019 for the eighth year, celebrating creators appearing at this year’s show. This year’s book of art features interpretations of characters from Juan Díaz Canales and 2019 guest Juanjo Guarnido‘s award-winning Blacksad.

Beautifully designed by returning guest and Cupid’s ArrowsWarning Label, and Time and Vine creator Thom Zahler, the book comes in a standard and, for VIP ticketholders, a limited VIP cover edition.

This film noir-style series follows John Blacksad through stories set in late 1950s, reflecting a dirty, realist outlook and a dark cinematic style through fairly clean, realistic lines. The series’ art features detailed watercolor drawings, including real-life places and cities, which contribute to the realistic feel of the series. Blacksad is a private investigator whose cases entail researching murders, child abductions, and nuclear secrets. Guarnido’s painted art and rich cinematic style bring 1950s America to life on the page of his books, and Canales’ storytelling of conspiracy, racial tension, and the “red scare” Communist witch hunts of the era make for compelling storytelling. Guarnido’s anthropomorphism in Blacksad is unique, and reaction to this yearbook theme from Baltimore Comic-Con guests has been enthusiastic!
