In 1978, Bryan Talbot began the epic Luther Arkwright saga with The Adventures of Luther Arkwright. Serialised initially first in the comic Near Myths, and later in Pssst! Magazine, the serialised parts were completed by the rest of the story and published as first a comic book series and then a graphic novel.

The Adventures of Luther Arkwright is considered a groundbreaking work in the history of British comics and, with material dating back to 1972, one of the first British graphic novels.It was followed by a sequel, Heart of Empire in 1999, and a final volume – The Legend of Luther Arkwright – will be published in 2022.

Working closely with creator Bryan Talbot, Bryan Talbot’s Luther Arkwright: 50 years of a British comics legend celebrates both the release of The Legend of luther Arkwright alongside the history of the character and previous installments of the series. Immerse yourself in never-before-seen material, insights into Bryan’s process, different editions, models and ephemera, and original comic art from the series.
