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.
