Grandville Bete Noire by Bryan Talbot

gbnA very stylish Bond-style thriller all dressed up in a sumptuous Steampunk-Art Noveau Paris, this graphic novel has bags of charm.

Complete with a flawed detective (with a past, of course)  for a hero, a beautiful bad-girl love interest and a thoroughly chilling villain, the book also crams in huge numbers of cameos and visual in-jokes (possibly my favourite was an otherwise un-commented-on dissolute-looking Paddington swigging from a bottle in a brown paper bag).

If you’ve never read a graphic novel before, it’s well worth picking up this one, you’re sure to be quickly hooked.
