The first thing thing that will be impressed upon anyone who picks up Grandville by Bryan Talbot, is what a gorgeous production this is in every respect, with some of the very best art and coloring you'll have the pleasure to experience. Amongst the inspirations for Grandville, Talbot lists Sir Arthur Doyle, Rupert the Bear, and Quentin Tartintino, which should give those curious about what Grandville is as to what kind of book this is. Bryan Talbot is a master comic book writer and artist, who never repeats himself as is evident with his earlier graphic novels The Adventures of Luther Arkwright, Heart of Empire, The Tale of One Bad Rat, and Alice in Sunderland.
Grandville is a steampunk, anthromorphic (talking animals), murder mystery adventure for mature readers that takes place in an alternate reality / history England and Paris and every page is an entertaining, charged read. As realized as the story is that unfolds within Grandville, Talbot's art is the true star here (along with the coloring) and this is a graphic novel that one could look at repeatedly and always find new delights. Grandville is a full-colored 100 page hardcover published by Dark Horse for a mere $17.95.
