The Eisner- and Harvey-winning story begun in Blacksad: They All Fall Down • Part One comes to a thrilling conclusion as private investigator John Blacksad finds himself in a race against time to save his best friend from the electric chair!

Weekly’s been framed by Lewis Solomon, the power behind New York’s construction boom, but the king of the hill has built his empire on a mound of corpses, including union attorney Kenneth Clarke and theater director Iris Allen, and Blacksad must take out their killer before he can take down Solomon. But with Weekly in stir and cops on his heels, the feline detective is minus an ally—and the sudden reappearance of his lost love Alma promises a dangerous distraction as he seeks to uncover the truth.

This explosive new story written by Juan Díaz Canales, illustrated by Juanjo Guarnido, and translated for English-language readers by Diana Schutz and Brandon Kander, concludes in Blacksad: They All Fall Down • Part Two, on sale in November 2024.
At an early age, Juan Díaz Canales became interested in comics and their creation, which progressed and broadened out to include animated films. At the age of 18, he entered a school for animation. In 1996 he founded, together with three other artists, a company called Tridente Animation. Through this, he has worked with European and American companies, providing plots and scripts for comics and animation films, as well as directing animated television series and animation movies.

During this period he met Juanjo Guarnido, with whom Canales decided to create comics based around a private investigator, Blacksad. After contacting several editors, Guarnido and Canales finally signed on with French publisher Dargaud, and in November 2000, Somewhere Within the Shadows was published. It was a great success with both critics and the public, and was awarded the Prix de la Découverte at the Sierre International Comics Festival and the "Avenir" Prize at the Lys-lez-Lannoy Festival, in Switzerland and France respectively. In March 2003 the second album Arctic-Nation, was released. It was once again a great success, winning the Angoulême Audience Award and the Festival Prize for Artwork in 2004. The third instalment of the Blacksad series, Red Soul, was published in 2005. In 2006 it was awarded the Angoulême Prize for a Series. The author lives in Madrid, Spain.
