Burden Hill seems to be a normal, peaceful suburb like any other. There are yards full of green grass fenced in with white picket. House pets roaming all about. However, something dark and dangerous keeps stirring in the nearby woods. Haunted dog-houses, Black Sabbaths and zombie roadkill are among the horrors. As things continue to grow darker, one group of dogs must learn to become Wise Dogs (and one cat) to protect their homes and families.
This volume cheaply priced at 20 bucks for a hardback collects the various short stories from theDark House Book of… anthologies as well as the 4-issue Beasts of Burden mini-series. They give you eight stories by Dorkin and Thompson of heroic housepets battling the supernatural that are both wonderfully adorable and terribly horrifying at the same time.
