Two hundred years ago, Britain lost the Napoleonic War and fell under the thumb of French domination. Gaining independence after decades of civil disobedience and anarchist bombings, the Socialist Republic of Britain is now a small, unimportant backwater connected by a railway bridge, steam-powered dirigible, and mutual suspicion to France. When a British diplomat's murder is made to look like suicide, ferocious Detective-Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard stalks a ruthless murder squad through the heart of a Belle Epoque Paris, the center of the greatest empire in a world of steam-driven hansom cabs, automatons, and flying machines. LeBrock's relentless quest can lead only to death, truth . . . or war.

* Following on the heels of his internationally acclaimed graphic novels The Tale of One Bad Rat and Alice in Sunderland, Grandville is a fantastical and audacious roller-coaster ride, visually stunning and rich in memorable detail.

Item Reviews
Hmm how do I sum up Grandville in a short review? Well I’d have to start out by saying it was just a fantastic read, good rich characters (even the supporting roles), a nice interesting story line, and some beautiful art. Though it did remind me a bit of the modern times, the whole ground zero bit, and the “British anarchists” reminded me a lot of the two years that followed the September 11th attacks. I only had two problems with it, for one there were areas that the British English was a bit thick, like the part where we first see Lebrock for the first time; I was having a hard time making out what they were saying, even considering I have family from those parts. It would have been so nice to have a ledger of translations somewhere in the book. And for the second thing, it’s not so much bad as it was a mood killer. For those of you that haven’t seen fantastic mister fox, there’re parts in that (awful but funny) movie, where they do extreme close ups on the characters faces, often showing a blank look, or crazy eyes. And in Grandville there are parts where they do it to add suspense, but sadly there characters look a lot like the ones from the movie, so every time they did this, I would chuckle, and it would break the suspenseful mood. In any rate I would give Grandville a 4 and a half out of 5 stars, it would have gotten six, but there were times in the book that the facial exasperations didn’t match the mood, and it should have been a little longer then it was in my opinion. I bought it not thinking it wouldn’t be worth the 20 bucks, but I’m happy to say I was wrong. So be sure to pick this book up, it’s a great addition to any collection.
Heavy on the action and very satisfying
Though the plot may be a bit cliche, the characters and artwork are well worth the price. A definite must-buy for fans of Sherlock Holmes, furry comics, and action!
