Praise for Grandville L'Intégrale

Grandville is a favourite of ours.

Bleeding Cool

Bryan Talbot is the most important comic creator in Great Britain.

Teddy Jamieson, Herald Scotland

I've never made a secret of my belief that Bryan Talbot is a genius... So I was always going to like Grandville Mon Amour. Even so, my passion for it took me by surprise: I can safely say that this is, by several miles, my favourite graphic novel of the last 12 months.

Rachel Cooke, Observer

These ingeniously plotted fantasies will make you bark with laughter.

Metro

For over a century children have loved getting a Rupert or Beano annual as part of the season's largesse. This year a lot of grown-ups should feel similar delight when Grandville Mon Amour turns up under the tree.

Guardian

A solid conspiracy caper with bursts of Tarantino-like mayhem... A witty romp in a vividly realised topsy-turvy world.

Times Literary Supplement

Utterly delightful... There's a witty touch or deliciously knowing in-joke on almost every page... Beautifully rendered, throughout, the glossy gorgeousness fills your eyes.

The Times

The bastard child of Conan Doyle and Beatrix Potter, it's a gripping feast for the eyes.

Observer

I have greatly enjoyed the Grandville books. I think they're superbly designed, beautifully conceived, admirably written - everything about them is terrific.

Philip Pullman

This ripping yarn of mystery, murder and the machinating arms tycoon Baron Krapaud of Toad Hall is both irresistibly exciting and sumptuously designed.

Telegraph

I've never come across a fictional world as fully-realised as Bryan Talbot's Grandville... It's a world you'll never tire of exploring.

Ian Rankin
