Announcing:
Arkwright Integral

At last, a high quality ultimate A4 size hardback edition of the first flagship British Graphic Novel, together with the full colour sequel, Heart of Empire!

Coming in October 2014 from Dark Horse Comics, at 556 pages, this will retail at $59.99, around £36, and is all of The Adventures of Luther Arkwright and Heart of Empire in one volume. In addition, the Arkwright pages are digitally remastered from the original artwork and are the best quality versions of this art you will ever see!

Did you know that you can read the whole first chapter of the Heart of Empire CD-Rom online for free right now? Yup; this is such a complex concept to try and put across that we said "to hell with it; just put the whole first chapter up there; that way people can see exactly what it is and buy it if they like it and have their curiosity satisfied either way."

The Cannabis Conspiracy

The Cannabis Conspiracy is a wonderful comic by Bryan Talbot where he underlines the real reasons that cannabis is illegal..

Update: (Thursday March 18th) I wasn't able to upload the new panels yesterday as promised as I had a MOTHER of a computer crash! After a day of patient work I am now back online and able to edit images / create webpages / upload them. And I wasn't too worried as I had a good backup made last week. (this is a serious lesson: always, ALWAYS, ALWAYS make backups).

Anyway: in the interim someone chatted to me on Twitter - via the Bryan Talbot twitter account of course - and said that she loved Bryan's art, but that presenting the comic in panel by panel format made it harder to read, not easier. Now: I am the webmaster for Bryan's official fanpage: that makes it Officially Impossible for me to stand back and look at Bryan's work like a normal fan or website visitor would: by definition - I know Bryan's work intimately and I can therefore never look at anything of his as if for the first time. So: as a result I thought I would follow the advice given and put the Cannabis Conspiracy online in single pages rather than individual panels.

What do you think? - is it any better? - please let me know: join the Bryan Talbot Facebook group to talk about it or follow Bryan Talbot on Twitter.


Tuesday March 16th 2010: The comic is online in panels: see panel 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 ... - or just click on the panel 1 image here and start the sequence.

Panels 1 to 8 are the first of the printed pages of this comic: check back here tomorrow (that is Wednesday March 17th 2010) for the next 9 panels which equate to page 2 of the printed version.

 

If you liked this then also see Bryan's other work - particularly the Adventures of Luther Arkwright (which some say is the first every graphic novel) or Grandville - an anthropomorphic, steampunk detective-thriller!
