The Adventures of the 19xx (A CS lookalike!)

Postby Igor » Sat Oct 26, 2013 11:46 pm

Just dropping by to point out something I just found that you guys would probably appreciate, a dieselpunk web comic created by Paul Roman Martinez...
...not long after the end of the Great War, those who were capable of hearing it, received a revelation… another Great War was coming. This coming war would push the limits of technology, split the atom to create the power of a small star, and bring together forces more evil than the world has ever known. That this war would happen was man’s fatal destiny, but the outcome of the war and the details of it were not as clear. A weak League of Nations banded together to form a group. A group capable of doing what those countries could not. A group of adventurers, explorers, and scientists from every allied country to search the globe and fight a battle far from the public eye. This group is The 19XX, all the public has been told is that they are fighting for all of the good in humanity to survive the nineteen hundreds and beyond.


Just to wet your whistle for it, this is how they get about...

I'd love to see a Crimson Skies comic or graphic novel done in the same fashion! Gotta run!

There was a Crimson Skies comic book. To the best of my knowledge only the initial preview was published. The planned four issue mini series never happened that I am aware of.

Found the site that Igor mentioned >>The19xx.Com<< that link opens the most current page, you will have to select book one to start at the beginning.

Yes, they're on book three now. I notice you can buy them as hardcopies as well. An enterprising writer / artist duo could clean up with the CS IP

Came across another CS look-alike, "War of The Worlds: Goliath" which bills itself as a Steampunk based on HG Wells classic, however it strikes me as more Deiselpunk than anything!

Looks a bit like an anime.

The story revolves around the "Second Wave" of the Martian attack from the HG Wells novel, War of the Worlds. The bulk of the story takes place on Manhattan Island.

The full BBCode set is not installed or I would be able to embed the video here, follow the links below for the trailers.
