It’s always hard to know what graphic novelist Bryan Talbot is going to be up to — will it be a crazy imaginative story of English history and dimensional travel like Luther Arkwright? Or a sensitive, heart-rending story about child abuse like Tale of One Bad Rat? Or something else entirely? One genre Talbot has been working in extensively over the last few years is anthropomorphic steampunk mystery with his Grandville stories. The latest volume is coming out this December from Dark Horse and Jonathan Cape—and here’s a trailer for it.
