Bryan Talbot, Ian Rankin
‘I’ve never come across a fictional world as fully-realised as Bryan Talbot’s Grandville… It’s a world you’ll never tire of exploring’ IAN RANKIN
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’Integrale collects all five Grandville novels in one deluxe hardcover volume accompanied by voluminous author notes never before in print.
