Bryan Talbot amazes me. Everytime. And this time is no exception,
This review is from: The Adventures Of Luther Arkwright (Paperback)
I struggled with this book. For the first thirty pages i found it utterly confusing. The writing, the artwork, the layout. I couldn't get into it. But the observant amongst you will note that I have given it 5 stars. That is because beyond those first 30 pages I found myself totally caught up in the most amazing work of art.
The complexity of the structure, the fully imagined alternate realities he delivers and the sheer quality of the draftsmanship were irresistible.
I have now read all of Bryan Talbot's graphic novels and am only able to communicate in hyperbole - Bryan Talbot is one of the greatest novelists working in any genre in the UK today.
