Grandville and the sequel: Grandville: Mon Amour

Grandville is Bryan's latest graphic novel - set in an alternate anthropomorphic steam-punk world! Grandville: Mon Amour is the sequel that Bryan (as of July 3rd 2010) is currently working on)


Alice in Sunderland

Alice in Sunderland is Bryan's frankly amazing exploration of the life of Lewis Caroll, Alice Liddel the heroine of Alice in Wonderland, the city of Sunderland and it's connection to the Alice story (and the myths surrounding it's creation) as well as a historical romp with many manic diversions. It is almost impossible to summarise - it contains roughly the same amount of research as a PhD thesis - and Bryan in fact was awarded an honorary degree by Sunderland University!


The Tale of One Bad Rat

In a career full of extraordinary comic achievements this is one of the most amazing: Bryan originally set out to write a very accessible story about a girl leaving home and living in the Lake District of England. When writing the plot summary he decided that the reason she was leaving home was due to childhood sexual abuse: but - when he researched the issues further he concluded that this had to be the absolute central point of the whole novel, that this was so significant that the whole comic had to be about the heroine coming to terms with what had happened.

Now: I am now saying that he succeeded with honour and integrity... - but this comic is now used in the treatment of childhood sexual abuse. If I am proud of anything I have done in my life it is publicising this comic and getting more such victims to read it.


The Adventures of Luther Arkwright

Bryan's magnum opus - the incomparably excellent Adventures of Luther Arkwright


Heart of Empire

The stunning sequel to The Adventures of Luther Arkwright - Heart of Empire


Memento

From Homogenous to Honey

From Homogenous to Honey: Bryan Talbot and Neil Gaiman's comic protest against homophobic legislationThe Homogenous comic is a collaboration between Bryan Talbot and Neil Gaiman with inks by Mark Buckingham and letters by Steve Craddock.

It was a protest against proposed homophobic legislation in the UK in 1988 and showed what would happen if all fey and homosexual influences were removed from society. Bryan said "It appeared in the benefit comic AARGH! (Artists Against Rampant Government Homophobia) published by Alan Moore's Mad Love imprint and was my first collaboration with Neil." Also see the Wikipedia article on AARGH!
