Definitely not a furry - this comic is for everybody (who likes comics). Dark Horse's collection of the first three books was great, so I'm sure they'll do a good job here.
Hopefully you've heard of this French, anthropomorphic, noir, detective series? (Info Here) Well the fourth album which has yet to be released in America will be released via Dark Horse in July! This is huge news. Furry or no you have to appreciate the absurd attention to detail in the artwork or the intrigue of the story.
I'm so excited for this. I read a fan translation but that was garbage. I'm honestly thinking of buying the album twice just to support the series. Blacksad is the best.
Short stories? Cool.
Dark Horse seemed a bit reticent to publish it like a European comic album (about 60 pages), so I knew they were adding a bunch of extras to swell the page count to around 100.
BTW, do you know anything about these short stories? I've got an idea about what A Silent Hell is about (mystery in New Orleans, voodoo stuff, ect.), but I haven't been able to find any info on the shorts.
Really excited about this!
I can tell from the copyright page (viewable on amazon's preview of the book), that the two short stories are:
Comme Chien et Chat "As Dog and Cat"
Cracher au Ciel "Spitting in Heaven"

I've got mine coming in the mail next week. I saw it in the store today though. Looks high quality like the first collection. the Silent Hell story makes up the first half-ish of the book followed by what looked like 'making of' commentary for the series with a lot of water colors and in the works images. The two new stories looked really short lke one or two pages tops. Cool though, can't wait to get my mitts on it.
In any case, I'm glad to know the book looks high quality.
