Steampunk Originals

Goggles, gadgets, and gears: considering Steampunk on those terms is no less absurd than imagining our reality populated solely by electricians, hackers, and astronauts. Imagine a reality where steam-based technology and 19th century culture persisted. The Confederacy holds to Southern traditions while industry flourishes in the Union. The west is wild as the Apache fight ...more

A generous two stars, for this mostly uninspired collection of steampunkish comics. The art often wasn't in a style I enjoyed or seemed a bit rough. While some stories were so packed with steampunk gears, goggles and what-not there was little room for character or story, others didn't seem to fit into the collection at all. Few were worth the price of admission (my time).

I also was hounded throughout the collection by the fact that there were few women represented, and the few that were, weren't

Reviewing a graphic novel is never easy, and when that graphic novel is a collection of almost thirty shorts, one shots and ads, it's even harder.

First, a little about the rating: the actual stories being told in this anthology are fairly average, and rely heavily on an understanding of stereotypes to convey their messages in a small space. My biggest complaint with the stories was that a fair number of them really needed to be longer in order for me to care what what happening. However, many of

I have to say, this was quite a mess. A handful of mildly interesting ideas marred by awkward conceptions and stereotypical depictions, Steampunk Originals leaves a lot to be desired, both in the first and second parts of the title. In spite of the intriguing descriptions, which posits a variety of alternate history tropes, hardly any of these ideas are used, and the features end up feeling both disconnected and repetitive. While the art here ranges from amateur to pretty good, the writing is ge ...more

A moda steampunk pegou e tornou-se banal ver o adjectivo de género aplicado a livros e filmes que se socorrem de dirigíveis e mecanismos de relógio como adereços. A Arcana é um exemplo típico de editora com estas práticas e este livro uma colectânea pouco homogénea de histórias curtas dentro do género. Apostando em autores novos, frescos e ainda crus, varia muito na qualidade. Encerra algumas boas surpresas e é de apreciar o estilismo arrojado da maior parte das histórias, que fogem ao aspecto l ...more

Various is the correct author for any book with multiple unknown authors, and is acceptable for books with multiple known authors, especially if not all are known or the list is very long (over 50).

If an editor is known, however, Various is not necessary. List the name of the editor as the primary author (with role "editor"). Contributing authors' names follow it.
