Kennel Block Blues

Illustrated by Daniel Bayliss

When Oliver is sent to Jackson State Kennel, he faces threats from the guards, the other dogs, the cats...and from his own mind.

Oliver is a good dog. A family dog. But without warning, he’s sentenced to Jackson State Kennel, where he’s instantly placed on Death Row with the rest of his fellow inmates, awaiting a lethal appointment if salvation doesn’t come. He’ll need help escaping the Kennel, but when the stress of prison life builds, he starts escaping reality instead, imagining a fantasy world of cartoon friends. It’s time to break out . . . into a musical number?

From the imaginations of writer Ryan Ferrier (Sons of Anarchy, Curb Stomp) and artist Daniel Bayliss (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons), Kennel Block Blues is an inventive, heartfelt journey that explores themes of loss, mental illness, and the horrors both humans and animals endure when incarcerated.
