Convicted psychotic killer and extremist fanatic Edward "Mad Dog" Mastock violently escapes the guillotine's blade in the Tower of London to once again terrorize the Socialist Republic of Britain. But dogging Mastock's bloody footsteps is his longtime adversary and nemesis, Detective Inspector Archie LeBrock, at odds with Scotland Yard and intent on bringing Mastock's horrific murder spree to an end, once and for all.

Aided by his friend and colleague Detective Roderick Ratzi, LeBrock follows the trail of carnage to Paris, otherwise known as Grandville, the largest city in a world dominated by the French Empire and the prime target of Mastock's sadistic terrorism. Can LeBrock capture the Mad Dog before he can mete out his final vengeance, or will LeBrock's own quest for redemption be dragged to ground by the demons of his past?

The badger is back! Set three weeks after the finale of
Grandville – Bryan Talbot's critically acclaimed steampunk graphic novel – Grandville Mon Amour explores an alternate art-nouveau world populated by intelligent animals, a human underclass, robot automatons, and advanced steam technology that power everything from hansom cabs to iron flying machines.

Grandville Mon Amour is the second in the series of Grandville graphic novels.

• The world of
Grandville is described by Talbot as "like Jules Verne and Sherlock Holmes directed by Quentin Tarantino – with animals!"

Philip Pullman

•Author of His Dark Materials

“I have greatly enjoyed the Grandville books. I think they're superbly designed, beautifully conceived, admirably written - everything about them is terrific... A graphic novel built on the solid foundation of a strong story.”

The Guardian

•UK national newspaper

“Talbot’s storytelling, as well as his draughtsmanship, has grown steadily more assured and subtle ... he brings a rare subtlety, even beauty, to his medium ... [the] elaborate brass-and-mahogany steampunk paraphernalia constantly add to the visual delights of the tale.” – Michael Moorcock

The Observer

•British Sunday newspaper

“I’ve never made a secret of my belief that Bryan Talbot is a genius ... The whole thing is utter bliss: clever, knowing, funny, imaginative, chilling, and illustrated so gorgeously, you could stare at each frame for hours. I love LeBrock, and I want you to love him, too. So, go on. What are you waiting for? Follow the badger!” – Rachel Cooke
