“[One of the] first graphic novels to come out of Britain … A great example of art and literature mixing effortlessly into one. Anyone who has seen and enjoyed Talbot's art in mainstream comics has a wonderful book waiting for them.” – Grovel

Across a multitude of parallel universes, dark forces operate in the shadows, manipulating mankind’s histories throughout countless timelines. The agents of these Disruptors all work with a single purpose – the recovery and activation of Firefrost, a long-hidden doomsday device whose unspeakable power is capable of consuming the galaxy in all its incarnations. Standing in the way of the Disruptors is Luther Arkwright, a human anomaly who exists only in a single universe, a man of vast psychic powers and capable of travelling between the parallel realities to counter the Disruptor’s malign influence.

But the Disruptors are aware of Arkwright and his abilities, and while Arkwright searches the myriad Earths for the location of Firefrost, the agents of darkness race to destroy Arkwright… and to ensure their unthinkable ends.

“Here [is] something far more original and idiosyncratic than anyone [has] attempted before . . . an alternative history of modern times. And, of course, because Talbot [uses] a popular form to do this, it [is] also a very good, romantic, inventive, fast-paced yarn.” – Michael Moorcock

“From riveting action scenes to beautiful silent sequences, from studies in hateful obsession to humor both ribald and gentle . . . surely one of the all- time great epics of the medium. This long-overdue collection proves both Bryan Talbot’s mastery of his craft and his understanding of what makes a truly great comic book: an intriguing story, characters with genuine resonance, and illustrative excellence in perfect balance with clear and precise storytelling.” – Garth Ennis

Please note this title is only available in North America

“An adult science-fiction epic of boundless imagination and audacious vision.”

Forbidden Planet

•Comics retailer

“Bryan Talbot’s visionary tale is the very definition of epic steampunk sci-fi. That it still, some 31 years after initial publication, stands up as both a masterpiece of sci-fi AND of experimentation in the narrative art of comics is testament to the vision and skill of it’s author.”
