The first advance copies of Grandville: L’Intégrale by Bryan Talbot have just arrived in the UK, on sale in August.
Over 600 pages long, introduced by Ian Rankin, this handsome volume collects all five Grandville stories, plus their covers and copious annotations – for just £30 from most bookshops.
Beware the Badger! The acclaimed steampunk series from graphic-novel pioneer Bryan Talbot explores an alternate art-nouveau world populated by intelligent animals, a human underclass, and wondrous technology.
Within this rich fantastical milieu, the relentless Detective-Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard pursues shadowy death squads, psychotic killers, dark political conspiracies, ruthless crime lords, and bloodthirsty cults through the streets of London and the center of the greatest empire on earth, the Belle Epoque Paris known as Grandville.
Grandville L’Intégrale collects all five Grandville novels in one deluxe hardcover volume accompanied by voluminous author notes never before in print.
“’I’ve never come across a fictional world as fully-realised as Bryan Talbot’s Grandville,” enthuses Ian Rankin. “It’s a world you’ll never tire of exploring.”
