MISC. MANGA, *Steam Wars

With all their steampunk-inspired stories, it was only a matter of time before they decided to do a Star Wars parody with it. It's a more fleshed-out version of the story Fred Perry did in the Victorian Secret: Girls Of Summer special.

This ongoing series takes place on an alien world that thrives on steam-driven technology, and dominated by the evil Hegemonic Crux. The Duchess Imoen leads the Resistance against them, and she along with with the pushy airship Captain Lowe, his co-pilot bear Smokey, and the stuck-up droid Clees have to get the plans for the revolutionary Warp Coal away from Crux’s troops. Fortunately, they come across the last of the “Quantum Dragoons”, Bo Baron, who is really Crux’s son.

Even though it’s a tribute to the original Star Wars trilogy, it does manage to maintain its own identity as a steampunk adventure. Plus, Fred Perry brings his own unique take on fanboy love for both steampunk and Star Wars.
