Grandville Bete Noir
Grandville Bete Noir | Bryan Talbot
6 posts | 5 read | 6 to read
The baffling murder of a famed Parisian artist in his locked and guarded studio takes the tenacious Detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard and his faithful adjunct, Detective Ratzi, into the cutthroat Grandville art scene to track the mysterious assassin. As the body count mounts and events spiral out of control, the investigation points to Toad Hall, where a cabal of industrialists and fat cats plot the overthrow of the French State... by use of steam-driven automaton soldiers! * Grandville was nominated for an Eisner Award and a Hugo Award. * Also look for Dotter of Her Father's Eyes and Cherubs from Dark Horse. "The universe Talbot creates is visually stunning and intellectually engaging."MadAboutComics.com

I had books 3 & 4 on my list of books to finish in 2020 because I thought the series stopped there, so imagine my surprise when a 5th book showed up in Hoopla! More adventures of DI Archie LeBlanc, a badger, in this anthropomorphic alt-history with a few steampunk tendencies. Humans are looked down on, even called doughfaces. 🤣 I love his assistant Roderick Ratzi. I'm amused when the face & hands are their designated animal, but their bodies⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick are essentially human. Makes the sexy time easier to understand I supposed. Overall, this is a fun series with a little bit of different genres.
Book 3: Bete Noir 15 points (TBR)
Book 4: Noel 25 points (Christmas)
Book 5: Force Majuere 10 points (Impulse)

Incredibly fascinating. Talbot is such an intelligent writer. Re-reads of his works of art are so rewarding.

Absolutely stunning set of panels that reminded me of a room in the Tate Modern with Richter's paintings.
