Steampunk Gorgon

by Isambard Dobig
I had to downsize the comic to upload it here, you can find it in a bigger size on http://zodiakoverun.de/Steampunk00.htm.

Read the adventures of gorgon-model Medusa and her friends in a 1930ies post-war steam-punk-world, including some magic, villians and of course technology. It's not victoriana or gas-lamp, but real steampunk mixed up with film noire. It's all handlettered and handdrawn with ink on real paper, no digital effects added.

@hpkomic: I totally agree, especially if this isn't some pseudo-traditional humtata, but good music.
@hpkomic: I hardly want to confess, but these titles were quite improvised and I spent less then 10 minutes on creating them...

@hpkomic: The original was done in red, white, and black... But strange, I often thought about recoloring Steampunk Gorgon. If you like any images in higher resolution, there should be a possibibility (I have everything on paper).

Interesting worldbuilding so far.

Interesting that you were able to create depth even through there is just a constant layer of concentric circles

If this was at a higher resolution and a little more cleaned up I would LOVE to color this.
@hbar: It is quite something like this. The newspaper is laying around in the saloon, and some of the technical people on board used the margin for a quick sketch of a circuit in mind.
@hbar: I really wanted to have handlettering, as everything is 100% analogue made, but handlettering is very time consuming, too, and it is impossible to correct mistakes. Sometimes I wonder if I should rework the comic and replace the handlettering with easier to read (and smaller) computerfont.
@hbar: No, I just like cars (when there where still some around, sigh) and some good machinery.
One thing I'm really liking is all the technical diagrams and great automobiles, you really have a knack for drawing them. Makes me wonder: do you have some engineering background?
Good one. "Make love, not babies" makes me chuckle. I like the humor, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting into the story so far. There's a lot of information and dialogue in a hard-to-read font. I may need to reread!
What's the significance of the circuit diagram in the upper-left corner? I'm imagining a character doing a back of the envelope -- or should I say -- margin of the newspaper calculation q:
Thank you very much. Actually it go so time-consuming (especially the handlettering), that I had to stop (and it didn't have much feeback then). After several started projects, I am now concentration on the Thater of Bloody Tongue Comic.

@Tantz Aerine: Nikolaos Gysis? Now that is flattering for me. But I grew up browsing in books with art noveau drawings, and there was a Mucha poster in my parents home.
She may never have said it, but at least the photo's very becoming :)
I really like how you introduce us to the world.
How very Art Deco! I love the composition AND the pencil work. Well done! This reminds me a lot of sketches by the Greek painter Gyzis.
"Snakes black" - haha, nice one!
