"Everyone is falling in love with Beasts of Burden, so we're giving you the first ten pages for free: http://tinyurl.com/beasts10..."
So, I dunno, either people like the book for real, or DHC is panicking because it's a grade-A stinker and they want to unload some copies asap.
Either way, you can read the first ten pages of Beasts of Burden #1 for free, here.
And, in case you still haven't checked them out, the first three short Beasts of Burden stories are available, also for free, by clicking on the following links.
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
The fourth short story, "A Dog and his Boy", hasn't been posted. It's where Ace was bitten by a werewolf. You can find that in The Dark Horse Book of Monsters, which some libraries and comic shops have available. Otherwise, it's the one where they meet a boy who turns out to be a werewolf. And Ace gets bit. And that's pretty much everything you might need to know along with the links above. If you like what DHC has been dishing out for free, go grab yourself a copy of the entire first issue this week. It should still be available at your local comic shop, unless they sold out or didn't order it. It's also available online from mail order sellers.
Issue #2 ships October 21st, iirc.
Over and out.
