bringing the sharp-edged "sabre" to steampunk

Here's an new webcomic for all of you steampunk enthusiasts out there: Lady Sabre & The Pirates of the Ineffable Aether.

Updated twice a week, this webcomic was launched a little over one month ago by Greg Rucka and Rick Burchett, who have worked on comics such as the Batman franchise in the past.

I've actually been following it since Day One, and although there are less than a half a dozen webpages up depicting Lady Sabre's exploits, thus far I am impressed.  It's pure swashbuckling adventurous fun, with guys in gas masks, corsets, an airship decorated in brass, and hidden handgun contraptions.

The story?  According to the website's About section, Lady Sabre's story is supposed to be all fun:

The adventures of the Lady Seneca Sabre and those she meets along the way as she travels the Sphere. Who she fights, who she foils, who she befriends. It’s about adventure and romance and excitement and, to paraphrase the great Zaphod Beeblebrox, “really wild things.”
