The characters of Bryan Talbot


This page has links to information and pcitures about the characters that Bryan has drawn over the years. It is not definitive yet... but it will be!

Probably one of the best visual guides to the characters that Bryan has drawn and / or created is the montage of characters that Bryan drew, from thumbnail gallery 2.

Luther Arkwright


Luther is the hero of Bryan's magnum opus "The Adventures of Luther Arkwright" and is heavily featured throughout this site: in fact that is a picture of him looking pretty darn mean at the top left of every page...

In the books we see him mature from a cool, distant and aloof man, into someone so passionate that he realises that he must save the Multiverse so that his one, true love, Rose Wylde may live...

An overview of the Arkwright Multiverse, and his main enemies, the Disruptors.
For details on the many images of Luther, check out the main Gallery page.
Another Talbot fan - Robert Cave - did a thesis on Luther for his Phd: start at the intro, then check out chapter 1 - part one and part two, chapter 2 - part one and part two and then the conclusion.
