THE STORY SO FAR…

DSE are in the last stages of editing THE GRAPHIC NOVEL MAN: THE COMICS OF BRYAN TALBOT, the four-part title documentary for the DVD.  The very first part traces Bryan’s early creative influences from fan to creator.  These include  Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in the SHERLOCK HOLMES 1940s film series, Nigel Kneale’s QUATERMASS AND THE PIT, RUPERT BEAR, LEO BAXENDALEthe classic HAMMER HORROR FILMS, the brilliant CREEPY and the MARVEL COMICS RENAISSANCE.  To provide context there are some wonderful shared insights by then teenage comic and film fans on both sides of the Atlantic with PROFESSOR HENRY JENKINS, PAT MILLS and DEZ SKINN.

This is just a sneak peak at some of the content leading up to Bryan’s almost 40 year professional career.  It hints at the early breadth of influences which helped ignite the creative passions for art and history, the detective, science fiction, and horror genres that have made Bryan Talbot one of today’s most innovative comic creators.  DSE would like to thank all the respective copyright holders for their kind support in making this series of documentaries possible.
