From his beginnings in the underground comics scene of the 1970s to his original graphic novels of the last 15 years, Bryan Talbot’s career has been a singular one. His groundbreaking series The Adventures of Luther Arkwright has not only been cited as helping create the ‘steampunk’ subgenre but was collected as one of the earliest examples of the ‘graphic novel’. His time at 2000 AD saw him apply the series’ steampunk trappings to Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill’s Nemesis the Warlock, as well as Judge Dredd, and he then went on to success in American comics on series such as Sandman. The Thrill-Cast chats at length to Bryan about his life and work, his influences, and how he has become internationally recognised as one of the key creators in British comics, with award-winning books such as The Tale of One Bad Rat, Alice in Sunderland, and Grandville.
