Digital Story Engine has released a trailer for its documentary The Graphic Novel Man: The Comics of Bryan Talbot, which, as the title suggests, chronicles the four-decade career of the creator of The Adventures of Luther Arkwright, The Tale of One Bad Rat, Alice in Sunderland and Grandville.
The trailer, which clocks in at more than three minutes, showcases plenty of shots of Talbot and his work, interspersed with excerpts from interviews with the likes of Neil Gaiman, David Lloyd, Warren Ellis, Pat Mills and Michael Moorcock about the artist and his impact.
“People are looking at this huge body of work, any book of which would be significant,” Gaiman says. “Bryan is, y’know, one of the greats.”
The Graphic Novel Man: The Comics of Bryan Talbot will be available on DVD and for download on May 12.
