“A rich work of science fiction … superbly creates what I didn't think was possible: a necessary aftermath to Arkwright.” – Warren Ellis

Nominated for three Eisner Awards and five Eagle Awards, Bryan Talbot's internationally acclaimed graphic novel,
Heart of Empire: The Legacy of Luther Arkwright is a truly epic work, both viscerally intense and scathingly funny, transcending genre and shattering the boundaries of graphic narrative.

Power, mysticism, history, murder, romance, politics, religion, sex, conspiracy, spectacle, and heroism are the multiverse that makes
Heart of Empire one of the most challenging, thought-provoking, and purely entertaining works of graphic fiction.

In a future alternate-reality Earth – one existence in a swirling maelstrom of parallel worlds – a vicious totalitarian British Empire reigns supreme. But in Rome, the dying pope sets into motion a dark plan to place the throne of Britannica under papal control – by any means necessary. And while such temporal machinations threaten the world's political and social stability, a monstrous force is building across the multiverse, and a countdown begins to almost certain dimensional apocalypse! Luther Arkwright has saved a universe before, but with an infinity of universes threatened with annihilation, all of Arkwright's preternatural talents are needed. If only Arkwright weren't dead…

• The mind-blowing sequel to Bryan Talbot's acclaimed
The Adventures of Luther Arkwright.

• Talbot, creator of
The Tale of One Bad Rat, Alice in Sunderland, and the Grandville series, is regarded worldwide as a pioneer and innovator of the graphic novel.
