Bryan Talbot announces third Grandville graphic novel

The phenomenal cartoonist Bryan Talbot has announced that he’s doing a third book in his anthromorphic steampunk series Grandville through Dark Horse. Titled Grandville: Bete Noire, Talbot states he’s already begun working on the book, so a book release could happen as early as next year.

The Grandville tells a violent mystery story set against the backdrop of an alternative historical world where England was conquered by French dictator Napoleon and only in modern times resumed being a sovereign state. At the center of this is two regular police offers named LeBrock and Ratzi, who seek to uncover this mystery while dealing with the political realities and the lifestyle of one living in a steampunk world.

And they’re all animals.

CBR interviewed Talbot prior to the release of both the inaugural volume and the sequel Grandville: Mon Amour, so read those and get ready for more Grandville to come.


Nominees announced for 2011 British Fantasy Awards

CLiNT #6

The British Fantasy Society has announced the finalists for the 2011 British Fantasy Awards, which will be presented during FantasyCon 2011, held Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 in Brighton, England.

This year’s Best Comic/Graphic Novel category includes a bit of an oddity, in that CLiNT, from Mark Millar and Titan Publishing, isn’t actually a comic or graphic novel but rather an entertainment magazine that serializes such works as Kick-Ass 2, Superior, The Pro and Turf.

The nominees for Best Comic/Graphic Novel are:

CLiNT, edited by Mark Millar (Titan)
Grandville Mon Amour, by Bryan Talbot (Jonathan Cape)
Neonomicon, by Alan Moore and Jacen Burrows (Avatar)
The Mountains of Madness, by Ian Culbard (Self Made Hero)
The Unwritten, Vols 1 & 2, by Mike Carey and Peter Gross (Titan Books)

Members of the British Fantasy Society and attendees of FantasyCon 2010 and 2011 are eligible to vote.
