Its research...really, honest. I have been considering Steampunk as a genre to research for our Object theory class. I stumbled across the Girl genius web comic..a page published on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Luckily for me the comic has been going since 2002..so no waiting for a while..though sadly now I have caught up to the present day and have to wait like anyone else.
It is well written, a good story and beautifully drawn and coloured, I may have to purchase a volume...more research you understand!
