Some tropes common in Bryan Talbot's works:
- Steam Punk: The Luther Arkwright stories are early steampunk, and Grandville is another example.
- Touch Telepathy: Used several times in The Adventures of Luther Arkwright and its followup Heart of Empire. Mind reading is done by touching hand to head, but it appears that it's more of a data dump than reading surface thoughts (though it is implied that another psychic can control the contents of the dump). However, it is possible to implant thoughts without touching.
