Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure #3-4

'I've enjoyed steampunk — everything except the name. . . . "Steampunk," which I think started as a joke take on cyberpunk and then caught on, is not that. These are gentleman and gentlewoman adventurers in the tradition of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. There's nothing "punk"-ish about it. Unfortunately, after we settled on the title Legenderry: Steampunk Adventure I came up with "Steampulp," which would have been more perfect title, since it encapsulates what we were trying to do.' -- Bill Willingham

Issue #3 - "Victory at Sea"

The shady individuals the next table over, the ones with an eye on Magna, realize they'll need to capture her for something called the "Black Mass." To that end, they unleash Dr. Moreau's animals to create the mother of all distractions.

Issue #4 - "Jungle Tales"

Magna's sister, by the way, is the adventurer Sonja, who Magna's been on a quest to find since issue 1.

Seven days later, Magna and the Phantom finally reach Port Defiance, from which she'll continue on her own in search of her mysteriously vanished sibling:

I'm sorry, I can't read "Victory at sea" without thinking of that Oglaf strip....

No, your other honor.

Ok, there's a lot to take in here, and it's really late where I am, so I'll just say four things before I go to bed:

1. I wish that this was animated or something for the sole reason that I want to see the Six-Thousand Dollar Man moving in slow motion with the cheesy sound effects.

2. When I got to "Any new update, Drums?", I had to stop reading and laugh for almost a solid minute before I could go on. But seriously, Wakanda's got nothing on these guys. Well, except the cure for cancer, I guess.

3. It took me a couple looks to see that the object in the background of the panel where Magna and Phantom kiss was a giant pink gear.

4. I absolutely love Devil, the snarky Phantom-shipping robot wolf.

Can't wait to see more of this! It's going to be Legen- wait for it...

I couldn't help but hear THIS whenever bionic Steve makes an appearance.

My first thought when looking at the cover was how Phantom-esque the guy looked even down to his striped pants, I didn't think he was ACTUALLY the Phantom!

Oh, thank goodness it wasn't just me! :-)

I shall have to pick this up in trade. Looks amazing.

Looks alright, but I prefer Antarctic Press's Steampunk fair, like the Steampunk Fairy Tale and Edge of Empire comics.

Y'know, the Phantom gets a pass because of the Grandfather Clause, but Steampunk Phantom takes things to an entirely different level of uncomfortable RE: Imperialism and such.

Interesting... Blakmaas is Captain Victory's grandfather in the original, Jack Kirby-penned Captain Victory series back in the 80's. He's also the series' NOT!Darkseid just as Victory's father is NOT!Orion.

Mandrake and Lothar NEED to be in this. So we can have the full set of the steampunk Defenders of the Earth.

I DID NOT think that a Steampunk Six Million Dollar Man was something I wanted.

But that is now the world we live in.
