    This is what I was in the mood for, except I wanted it to be larger and ideally in color I don t know if the original series run was in a different format, but I could hardly make out some of details, especially in the ephemera style writings, and reading the blocks of tiny print gave me a headache This is a fairly text heavy graphic novel, too, and the only punctuation the author seems fond of is the colon The lack of punctuation was for a 70s style altered state stream of consciousness Physical manifestation aside, I liked most things about the story It was a bit difficult keeping the parallel dimensions straight, but eventually it seemed not to matter My favorite character was not the protagonist, who was a little too super powered Chosen One to be interesting, but Rose, the woman who could communicate with her alternate selves on all the parallels I usually am filled with mockery when authors employ tropes like tantric sex expanding characters minds into oneness with the universe, ...

    What it is A universe spanning action adventure where Arkwright hops from parallel to parallel in order to save the multiverse by inducing revolution and drawing out the dominant alien enemy who is seeking to wipe out all parallels via a power gem.The Bad Overly verbose writing Mostly hollow characterization, especially of the supporting cast Art that suffers from inconsistency and poor anatomy and perspective Monologue upon monologue Lengthy Although a lot can be forgiven if you take into account that it took him around 7 years to finish the tale and publish the story.The Good Black and white art whose attention to detail is often astounding Visual sequences that capture silent action dramatically Overlapping storylines parallels which are early attempts at non linearity and which predate the storytelling technique of comics like Grant Morrison s The Invisibles.Overall A brave attempt to critique history, government, dictatorships, corruption, religion and power, while mixing in the minutiae of each of these topics into the overall storyline Sadly, though this makes author illustrator Bryan Talbot the equivalent of comics Umberto Eco IMHO, the master of minutiae in literature , it doesn t help smoothen the writing of this epic.It s a little like Watchmen in that a main character catalyzes a crisis in order to save the world a little like the Jet Li flick The One, in which parallel universes are accessible and contain parallel characters a little like The Matrix ...

    This book is like Lou Reed and the Velvet Undergroung It s the guy behind the guy Talbot s book has influenced the face of modern comics so greatly that it seeps into everything Morrison, Moore, Ellis, Carey, Ennis They all come from Talbot And from Arkwright It s wort...

    While my awareness with British comics is mostly limited to second hand knowledge of Judge Dredd, I had seen praise for this series and decided to check it out.The book begins with a foreword by Michael Moorcock, which is extremely appropriate The story that follows reminded very much of Moorcock s New Wave SF work on the Eternal Champion series and the Jerry Cornelius character in particular The hero is a somewhat groovy super agent who journeys to various parallel Earths in a semi mystical struggle against the Disruptors, a shadowy high tech group trying to bring about their own ideal timeline.Luther Arkwright debuted in the mid 70s, and the comic is definitely a product of its time In addition to high tech weapons, over the course of his adventures Arkwright makes frequent use of psychic powers, meditation, and consciousness expanding drugs He powers up via Tantric sex narrated with myth heavy stream of consciousness narration goes on walkabout in Tibet and encounters mysterious Buddhist monks The story never drags, but the psychedelic, Carlos Castaneda style mysticism made the story feel a bit dated.It s a very British ...

    Mind bending, freak ass sci fi mysticism Grant Morrison wishes he was this good Both this graphical novel black white and the sequel, Heart of Empire The Legacy of Luther Arkwright in color deserve to be in the collection of anyone who likes literary comics The Adventures of first issued in 1990 was just reprinted by Dark Horse, so this is a great chance to snap up both collections.Bryan Talbot writes sophisticated storytelling, complex characters and illustrates beautifully this master work Amazing to see how his art got even better in part two The storyline is a re imagined history of England if the empire kept growing, rather than collapsed under its own weight, and became a regime much like Nazi Germany Oh, and if it was supported by dark forces from across parallel universes, of course You get the idea no, not really both novels have twists and turns than Timothy Leary s intestines Features ...

    return return It s weird to think that this is over thirty years old, though not published in book form until some time later It s also a bit embarrassing that I hadn t read it before, given its seminal importance to the comics genre in the UK I liked a lot of things about it very much the interplay between Royalist rebels and Cromwellian puritans, the latter still ruling Britain in the 1970s the role of Arkwright, agent of order, but not necessarily of good the fantastic detail in the art, and the intricac...

    There s the inevitable parallel to Moorcock s Jerry Cornelius, who was the first in a chain of a whole new skew of fiction for me, in mindblowing read after mindblowing read I don t think I would have appreciated this book had I read it five years ago More familiar with Talbot s contemporary, historical work, I was astounded at the level of his skill I d say this is a perfect visual reference for any reader of Moorcock s Cornelius you get an idea of how he moves through the multiverse, only I think Una Persson is a singular, original copy while Cornelius is the prolific chain of existence throughout the worlds Arkwright stands strong on his two feet though, here, ending with...

    The sixties new wave lingers strongly over this comics masterpiece Moorcock s Nomad of the Time Streams, Cornelius Quartet, Keith Robert s Pavane, Burrough s cut ups, and stream of consciousness combine in a dense, mythic, non linear narrative with beautiful black and white illustrations Hugely ...
