A month of Previews: Grandville Mon Amour

Back to the previews, we’re proud to present a peek at Bryan Talbot’s Grandville Mon Amour, a steampunk talking animal mystery mash-up, or as Talbot puts it:

Grandville Mon Amour pits Detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard against an old adversary and ruthless urban guerrilla, Edward “Mad Dog” Mastock. It’s a fast-paced, Hitchcockian steampunk thriller.

If you’ve been following Talbot’s career at all you know he’s one of the most eclectic storytellers in the medium, producing a string of amazing graphic novels that show a range of emotion and imagination few can match — from Grandville to The Tale of One Bad Rat to Alice In Sunderland and the previous Grandville.

This is no exception.

Grandville Mon Amour is now on sale.









(Please note the pages are selections from various points in the book, not a continuous sequence.)

    Random thoughts on Bryan Talbot:

    1) I have the first volume of Grandville, but haven’t read it yet.
    2) The Tale of One Bad Rat was simply heartbreaking and powerful. Highly, highly recommended.
    3) Haven’t read The Adventures of Luther Arkwright, but it’s on my list.
    4) I just finished Alice in Sunderland and was completely blown away by Talbot’s range of styles, ingenious storytelling, and sheer fortitude. 300 pages of intensely researched, dense, complex, metaphysical meditation on the history of the Northeast region on England, ties to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and hundreds of people and events in between, both real and fictional. Again, highly recommended.

    Talbot’s one of the most underrated cartoonist of out time.

    I read Alice in Sunderland which was fantastic and had no idea about “Grandville Mon Amour” and it looks absolutely fantastic! Its jumped to the top of my wishlist!

    This article is blue ribbon material as far as I’m concerned. I haven’t used my brain so much in years. This is very interesting content.
