This is an original preliminary drawing of Blacksad created by Juanjo Guarnido. This panel immerses us in the tense atmosphere of “La Iguana”. A colorful mix of anthropomorphic silhouettes fills the space, each revealing its distinct personality through its animal-like appearance. The narrative tension is palpable, evident in the exchanged glances and postures of the guests. On the right, the imposing iguana boss, Poli, commands the scene, his corpulent figure and meditative expression granting him undisputed authority. The dim lighting adds to the sensation of a parallel world, where the law of the cunning prevails and where stories are woven in the smoke of cigarettes and the whisper of confidences. Every corner seems to have its own story, inviting the viewer to get lost in the rich tapestry of this small local mafia.
