What I love about this graphic novel is the well written story and most the graphic the art and the Victorian steampunk, crime noir this novels have It s a absolutely go for you if you like that kind of. With Grandville Force Majeure, Bryan Talbot s Grandville pentalogy has come to an end and I while it wouldn t be accurate to say I was heartbroken, I am definitely seriously bummed out Bryan Talbot s imaginative series of graphic novels has become an all time favorite of mine I m not usually that big on anthropomorphic characters but the magnificent artwork, dynamic alternate history steampunk setting, action packed plots full of clever twists totally sucked me in If you like subversive plots With Grandville Force Majeure, Bryan Talbot s Grandville pentalogy has come to an end and I while it wouldn t be accurate to say I was heartbroken, I am definitely seriously bummed out Bryan Talbot s imaginative series of graphic novels has become an all time favorite of mine I m not usually that big on anthropomorphic characters but the magnificent artwork, dynamic alternate history steampunk setting, action packed plots full of clever twists totally sucked me in If you like subversive plots like V for Vendetta, you should appreciate Grandville Grandville Force Majeure is the final book following Grandville, Grandville Mon Amour, Grandville B te Noire and Grandville No l in a five volume series of graphic novels It can best be described as what you would dream after mixing Sherlock Holmes, Wind in the Willows, James Bond, and psilocybin mushrooms The Grandville of the titles is a nickname for Paris in this alternate universe where the French won the Battle of Waterloo and rule the world Paris is the center of all cultural and political activity On my Series ranking scale I give the Grandville series rating of four While the series has a substantial and evolving backstory and they are best read in order, readers without the inclination or access to previous books in the series will still be able to enjoy this book FYI Although this is technically a cartoon, its target audience is not children Parents who control their children s access to reading material may wish to review this one first Hint If you are looking for a copy of these books, check with your local library to see if they have access to Hoopla digital content A Note on Series Some people insist on reading series in order starting at the beginning I believe that this is absolutely necessary with some series and unnecessary in others In my reviews I assign books in a series a score of one to five in which the higher score denotes increased importance of reading the book in order A series with returning villains, an ongoing story arc, and evolving family dynamics will rate higher than one where the plot in each book is totally unrelated to the others As an example, a Nancy Drew book would be a one There is no evolving story arc Nancy hasn t grown any older in fifty years and, face it, Ned is never going to propose to her The Lord of the Rings, on the other hand, is a five Reading the trilogy in order is essential to fully understanding and appreciating the story One book picks up right where its predecessor leaves off and Fellowship of the Ring contains information that readers of The Two Towers really need to know Besides, Tolkien originally wrote it as a single volume The review was based on an advanced reading copy obtained at no cost from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review While this does take any not worth what I paid for it statements out of my review, it otherwise has no impact on the content of my review.FYI On a 5 point scale I assign stars based on my assessment of what the book needs in the way of improvements 5 Stars Nothing at all If it ain t broke, don t fix it 4 Stars It could stand for a few tweaks here and there but it s pretty good as it is 3 Stars A solid C grade Some serious rewriting would be needed in order for this book to be considered great or memorable 2 Stars This book needs a lot of work A good start would be to change the plot, the character development, the writing style and the ending 1 Star The only thing that would improve this book is a good bonfire This might be the best volume yet in this series, though it s hard to make a choice Grandville follows Detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard, a working class badger who s worked his way up to the higher echelons of the police force LeBrock is something of a two fisted Sherlock Holmes, and this storythan any other shows the Holmesian side of his efforts Talbot s world is one filled with anthropomorphic animals lizard gangs from Paris, a gang of meerkats from the Kalahari Desert, This might be the best volume yet in this series, though it s

lovingly detailed stuff you ll ever see and the story, as they say, is really cracking Hope there are manyvolumes to come Grandville is a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Snowblind A sadly unfinished
