Oliver Cromwell was successful and his descendant has turned Britain into a fascist state. Luther Arkwright is an agent for King Charles II. Alternative history with a touch of sci-fi.

This is an excellent novel. I say novel because it crosses the threshold of the comic book into the world of literature. This book understands the fine line between mythos and logos. Luther Arkwright is more than a mere transitory being sent to save the space time linear continuum. Luther Arkwright becomes this enigmatic symbol of evolved spiritual consciousness that understands the sensuous flesh of the universe. Luther Arkwright is the next era of becoming, he is the definition of life and death that is crucified in the pitiful blood drenched mediocrity that is known best as man's history. From this novel we sneak a peek at the transcendence owed to us by GOD.

Re-reading this for the second time, I still have no idea what the hell is going on with this story. I know this is better than 3 stars, but I'm not ashamed to say that I don't get it. I'm also not a big fan of Talbot's drawing style, but there is some very striking work in here. I can see a strong influence from Michael Moorcock, and how this was influential for Alan Moore and Warren Ellis. I would probably appreciate this more if I had a better understanding of British and European history. The sadomasochistic nuns are pretty cool, though.

This is a well writen and drawn book. Luther Arkwright is the only one of his kind in the multiverse. There is only one of him and he can travel between worlds. As he fights his own demons and the evil bad guys bent on the destruction of the multiverse he enjoys some tantric sex and blowing up people. Not for the little ones but very good.
