This eight-time Eisner Award-winning comic book series blending fantasy and humor features the adventures of paranormal pets investigating the horrors of Burden Hill.

A heroic pack of canines known as the Wise Dogs sets off on a mission to clean up a Pennsylvania corridor plagued by seemingly unrelated occult disturbances that include a fire salamander and a horde of mutant lurkers. A link is found among the various disturbances, leading our heroes to a mountain village inhabited by a survivalist witch-cult who have discovered the existence of a “Blood Lure” attracting occult forces, creatures, and many more terrors to Burden Hill!

Award-winning comics creators Evan Dorkin (Milk & Cheese) and Ben Dewey (The Autumnlands) come together to share the lives of some unlikely heroes.

This volume collects the comic-book series Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men issues #1-4, published by Dark Horse Comics.
