Six DVDs and six HD dig­i­tal down­loads of this great doc­u­men­tary se­ries on the cre­ator of Luther Ark­wright and Grandville to be won

The Graphic Novel Man: The Comics Of Bryan Tal­bot is a se­ries of doc­u­men­taries which ex­plores the de­vel­op­ment of ac­claimed writer/ artist Bryan Tal­bot. The doc­u­men­taries trace not only his ca­reer, but ex­plore how his deep knowl­edge of the craft of mak­ing comics has made him an in­ter­na­tional phe­nom­e­non at the epi­cen­tre of graphic novel in­no­va­tion.

Tal­bot’s ca­reer in­cludes his psy­che­delic un­der­ground comic Brain­storm!, The Ad­ven­tures Of Luther Ark­wright (ar­guably Bri­tain’s first graphic novel) and free­lanc­ing for 2000 AD on strips such as Neme­sis

The War­lock and Judge Dredd. For DC he’s worked on Bat­man, Sand­man and Hell­blazer. But he’s best

known for his own cre­ations, such as The Tale Of One Bad Rat, Heart Of Em­pire, Alice In Sun­der­land, the Grandville se­ries and the 2013 Costa Award-win­ning Dot­ter Of Her Fa­ther’s Eyes (cocre­ated with his wife Mary).

Fea­tur­ing con­tri­bu­tions from some of the world’s great­est comic cre­ators – such as Neil Gaiman, Joe Sacco, War­ren El­lis, Gil­bert Shel­ton, Ian Rankin, David Lloyd, Pat Mills, John Wag­ner, Char­lie Ad­lard, Car­los Ez­querra, D’Is­raeli, Doug Braithwaite and Andy Dig­gle – and leading crit­ics and comic his­to­ri­ans – in­clud­ing Paul Gravett, Kim New­man, Pro­fes­sor Henry Jenk­ins and Dr Mel Gibson – The Graphic Novel Man also boasts un­prece­dented ac­cess to pre­vi­ously un­seen ma­te­rial.
