While shuffling around the aethernet, I found a trailer for “The Clockwork Girl”, based on a comic series about a young mechanical girl named “Tesla”, and her attempts to navigate within the larger world, including a romance with a boy monster. Unfortunately, the two are kept at bay by rival scientist, and well, one might be better served by hearing the story from one of its authors, a Mr. Sean O’Riley, from his 2007 interview at “Comic Book Resources” (CBR) here.
Looks like it will be an outstanding Steampunk-esque whenever it completed (ideally in 2010), but for the time being, more information can be garnered at:
As some may have read from the New Babbage Ning from Miss Breezy Carver’s “Waves of a Seabreeze“, Time Magazine published a short but positive article on the Steampunk genre this week. While I was flattered to have the Heliograph mentioned in conjunction with a production of the caliber of Brass Goggles in the writeup, perhaps more importantly were the good aspects that were mentioned regarding Steampunk.
Many an writer/blogger/whatnot has predicted the imminent demise of Steampunk, asserting that it is merely a passing trend or clever artistic endeavor. To see Steampunk perhaps beginning to be viewed as more of a encompassing genre to those who may not be aware of it, certainly bodes well for the future.
