Sometimes you hear a description for a story and you just have to learn more. Such is the case with Stray Dogs, described by Image Comics as “Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs.” I have to read this book ASAP. The five-issue series from Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner debuts in February.

It’s scary being the new dog. In this suspenseful new series, readers meet Sophie, a dog who can’t remember what happened. She doesn’t know how she ended up in this house. She doesn’t recognize any of these other dogs. She knows something terrible happened, but she just…can’t…recall...WAIT! Where’s her lady? Now Sophie has to figure out where she is, what’s happening and how she’s going to survive this.

As revealed the The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Animation has acquired the rights to Stray Dogs with Mark Perez onboard to write the script. The horror filmmaker Gary Dauberman is set to produce under his banner, Coin Operated.

Each issue of Stray Dogs will have a special horror movie homage variant cover with a canine spin. The first will be Silence of the Lambs.

“When I had the idea for this comic, a suspense/horror story told from the perspective of dogs,  I knew that if I wanted it to REALLY work, I needed it to look exactly like one of those great, 80s-90s era animated movies," Fleecs told  The Hollywood Reporter on the announcement. "That’s what made me think of Trish.”

Forstner told THR: “I had studied with Don Bluth in his online program and learned some of his theories on storytelling and acting for animation. Drawing this book, I’m taking those ideas and creating believable, lovable characters with emotional acting and expressions. This story is something special.”

Stray Dogs #1 is set for release on February 17th, 2021.
