Some reviews of Grandville Force Majeure:

Rich Johnston: Grandville Force Majeure is my favourite comic of 2017

The Slings and Arrows Graphic Novel Guide reviews Grandville Force Majeure: "Grandville Force Majeure is an excellent addition to perhaps the most visionary and consistently good series produced by any one creator for a very long time. Like its predecessors it is visually lush, well written, astoundingly imaginative and bloody good fun. If LeBrock does make a reappearance you’ll hear no complaints here."

Ian Rankin: "Wow! Force Majeure is astonishing - sumptuous art, a whole alternate universe made real, rollicking storytelling, lovely little details and puns and in-jokes/references. The best Grandville yet!!"

Juan Días Canales, Writer of Blacksad: "More than a furry steampunk uchronia, Grandville is a smart and brilliant view of the human past... and maybe of his future. It's the kind of graphic novel I love!"

Val McDermid: 'Welcome to Grandville -- vivid, vicious and visceral.'

The Star said: This is a thriller, but it has more twists and turns than a Paris back street and a density of storytelling that hearkens back to Talbot’s 1970s/80s masterwork The Adventures of Luther Arkwright. And as emotive as Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes, which Talbot created with his wife Mary and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

Rachel Cooke in The Guardian says: Strongly recommended (and adored by me) is Grandville Force Majeure, the fifth and final book in Bryan Talbot’s magical series of stories about a steampunk badger detective, Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard. In this volume, our hero is on the run, the victim of a diabolical scheme to annihilate him by Tiberius Koenig, one of the greatest villains in all detective fiction.
