Dogs in Comics
Hirohiko Araki has often portrayed his villains as “dog-hating” characters that may even kill a dog to illicit an emotion from his reader. This has been so effective that even activist groups like PETA have put together protests to boycott the series. In reality, Araki actually really likes dogs. He feels this is one of the best way to make the audience hate a character, or the entire series for that matter.
