In Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson's Beasts of Burden #2, the implications of blood vengeance and care for pets is explored.

It’s hard to pass Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson’s Beasts of Burden off as a simple supernatural horror comic.

It’s hard not to root for Joe Sacco when he’s just learning to smoke for the first time in the pages of Safe Area Gorazde. Really hard, even as a non-smoker. In the short, 5-page chapter “Drina”, readers find themselves awash in a cultural milieu around the cigarette brand that’s named for a local river, and that becomes a pop-cultural flashpoint for the entire war.
