Grandville Bête Noire Premiere: Bryan & Mary Talbot



The Badger is back! Tonight Comica Festival at Foyles proudly presents the world premiere of Grandville Bête Noire, the third episode in Bryan Talbot’s phenomenal Grandville series of anthropomorphic steampunk romance thrillers starring Inspector Le Brock.

In his interview with writer, critic and cultural historian Kim Newman, Bryan will be joined by his wife Mary Talbot, writer and co-creator of Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes, part autobiographical family history, part biography of James Joyce’s daughter Lucia. There will also be a trailer and exclusive sneak peak at the forthcoming Bryan Talbot documentary.

Be among the first on the planet to get hold of this latest Grandville book and get your copy signed and personalised with a sketch by Bryan at the book signing following the interview.
