If only Arkwright weren’t dead… The Cast We’ve almost waiting long enough for the sequel to be in real time. Eighteen years is quite a long time ago. A lot’s happened in between. Another life.” a b Bell, Chris (Spring 1989). "Arkeology: Not just Luther Arkwright 10". Arkeology. Serge Boissevain ... has been waiting for the complete Adventures for about ten years now, patiently encouraging Bryan, publishing the first Book, putting up the money for the second, and publishing the third...; without him, Bryan might well never have managed to make time to complete Luther.
A work ambitious in both scope and complexity that stands unique upon the comics landscape... stunning."--Alan Moore

The Adventures of Luther Arkwright ( Dark Horse, 1997) ISBN 1-56971-255-7; republished in 2004 and 2007 With David Tennant, the release also reunites members India Fisher, Siri O’Neal, Robert Jezek and Jez Fielder. Emily Haigh, Georgina Hellier and Ahmed Hamad also join the cast as new characters. The novels are set across a multiverse in which many alternate versions of history exist parallel to one another. Talbot’s hero, psychic secret agent Luther Arkwright, has the ability to move between these parallels and he fights the malign influence of the Disruptors, a group who have manipulated humanity throughout history. He is aided by fellow agent Rose Wylde, a telepath who can communicate with her many alternative selves across the multiverse. They add: "Graphic novels are well suited to adventure, incident and appearance – introspection and psychological depth are more elusive – but The Legend of Luther Arkwright raises questions of morality, metaphysics and politics. This is image-based storytelling, at its most entertaining, provocative and visually striking."With many decades in the comics industry, Talbot has displayed his range of abilities and The Legend Of Luther Arwkright is a bold and exciting sci-fi adventure tale with real heart and real brains. There is no one else quite like him in the comics industry. The rest of the dramatis personae here also lend depth and breadth from Arkwright’s slightly crotchety eccentric lieutenant Harry Fairfax to genderless villain of the piece Proteus who is first introduced as a misguided figure but it soon becomes clear that its intentions are anything but benevolent.
