Aaron Diaz's Dresden Codak is an inventive swirl of science and supposition. The writing is fantastic speculative fiction all on its own but it's complemented by Diaz's damn impressive artwork. ComixTalk had a review of the comic earlier this year, I caught up with the creator for an interview by email for this month's issue.
In celebration of Steampunk Month here at ComixTalk, I've decided to take on the task of reviewing Warren Ellis' FreakAngels. Be warned, though: if "steampunk" to you means stovepipe hats, pocket watches, and parasols, then you may be a little disoriented by the direction Mr. Ellis takes his comic.
But then again, beyond the cutesy wordplay on "cyberpunk," what's steampunk, anyway?
