Note
  • Blacksad is a comic album series created by Spanish authors Juan Díaz Canales (writer) and Juanjo Guarnido (artist), and published by French publisher Dargaud. Though both authors are Spanish, their main target audience for Blacksad is the French market and thus they publish all Blacksad volumes in French first, the Spanish edition usually follows about one month later
  • "This volume collects the first three Blacksad albums: Quelque part entre les ombres [Somewhere within the shadows], Arctic-Nation, and Âme rouge [Red soul], originally published in France in 2000, 2003, and 2005 by Dargaud"--Title page verso
