New York Comic Con Panel

My husband and I will be on one Friday, October 14th! We’ll be the Victorian emissaries with a few Baritarian Histories on hand trying to look very smart.

Steampunk in Comics and Literature

Friday 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Location: 1A02

Steampunk traces its origins back to the science fiction of the 19th century, and the term itself was coined to describe a genre of Victorian sci-fi being written by modern authors. At the same time, steampunk and Victorian industrial age aesthetics have long held a great fascination for comic and manga artists of various backgrounds. This panel will discuss steampunk as a literary and artistic genre, examining steampunk’s literary origins and early examples of steampunk in comic book medium, as well as modern examples from both mediums such as Jay Lake’s Mainspring, G. D. Falksen’s Blood In The Skies, Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and Girl Genius by Phil and Kaja Foglio. The panel will also feature first looks at upcoming titles and give aways from leading publishers such as Wildside Press, Orbit Books, and Yen Press.
