MISC. MANGA, *Steampunk Originals
The more memorable ones are where a messenger girl has to plow through a rowdy bar to get a letter to a swashbuckling rocket-toting prince, an epic battle between 18th Century ronin and a mechanical army, a disfigured woman in an armored suit acting as a hero for defenseless women, a look at what a sci-fi convention would look like in a steampunk world, a daring explorer’s journey into a tomb filled with mechanical monsters, a disgruntled employee seeking revenge on his benefactors using tools he cobbled together in the sewers, and an enchanting tale of a woman’s lifelong ambition to reward the mechanical man who saved her life as a child.
This 2-volume series makes for a good introductory for anyone wanting to sample the world of steampunk.
