Great graphics, great storyline, great characters and humourous too. The steampunk setting gives the books an edge and lifts them. Can't rate them enough.
Just as beautiful as the first book, and better plotted. Highlier recommended.
I don't know what moved him to do an anthropomorphic graphic novel series, but he did a bang-up job of it. The art is gorgeous: the exciting carriage chase that opens the book, the Grandville architecture, the redoubtable Inspector LeBrock...every page is a delight. My only gripe is that the villains are shown as ineffective, given their past successes. Highly recommended.
Great stuff! He really has the knack of making animal faces look human. I've not seen this done as well since the Blacksad series.
Well worth a gander, even for none comic book people, like me!
Author/artist Bryan Talbot has lavished a great deal of care in realizing the amazing characters and locales of his anthropomorphic steampunk graphic novel. This is the kind of graphic literature that can provoke a quasi-total immersion experience if you meet it half way.
It's a genuine labor of love and shows it, nay flaunts it.
I'm not one for graphich novels or steampunk, but this coherent story is so well illustrated and written that I truly enjoyed it. There is blood splattering violence and mild nudity, neither of which I need, but somehow the animal faced characters work well and Victorean steampunk Paris never looked better. The full color inside is almost as dramatic as the less detailed cover.
