CBR: Bryan Talbot's "Grandville Mon Amour"
With the reign of Emperor Napoleon XII finished, what threats remain for the Socialist Republic of Britain? Bryan Talbot spoke with us about "Grandville Mon Amour," his alternate history tale populated by talking animals.
Grandville was great, so I'm suspecting the second will be as good or better. Everything Talbot does should be heralded as a major event in the comics industry.
Yes I also greatly enjoyed the first Grandville.

It lent itself to some wonderful jokes, but I'm not sure it suited the story (a thrill a minute action adventure) all that well. And... for my money made it harder to convey emotion.
But just a minor niggle. I'll certainly be buying the new series.
