Steampunk comics are taking the comic book industry by storm. Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Steampunk comic book creators imagine a world where inventors have crafted all of the same modern conveniences that we enjoy in our world, using the technology of an earlier time. Comic book fans in turn, have embraced steampunk, devouring comic books as soon as they hit store shelves and many cos-players have incorporated steampunk styles into their costume repertoires.
It is said that author Kevin Jeter was the first person to coin the word, steampunk as a way to separate himself and other retro-tech sci-fi writers from future-loving cyberpunks. Steampunk has grown into a whole visual style, and even a philosophy. It's about mixing old and new, fusing the usability of modern technology with the design aesthetic and philosophy of the Victorian age (William Higham, Huffington Post).
Steampunk's retro-tech style isn't completely limited to Victoriana though. Styles can be taken from anywhere in the giant dressing-up box of the 19th and early 20th centuries, the broadness of which is part of the trend's appeal.
Steampunk comic books are stories interwoven with science-fiction and fantasy and some really cool steam-powered vessels. This genre is perfect for sci-fi fans and fans of fantastical voyages and adventures. Also the machinery concepts are amazing.
