Didn’t Godfrey (the guy on the right) just climb that dangerous ladder on page 14? And what about Mr. Spyglass? How did he get up there?
So, I have just archive binged all 47 pages, looking forward to more.
It can’t be Steampunk as I have yet to see a single blimp. Also, a parody of Victorian Britain where young ladies of high breeding walk around showing off their ankles for all to see *adjusts monocle* preposterous.
Still, your outrageously great framing of panels and wonderful art style more than make up for it. I look forward to reading more.
Wow. Thanks for reading! I’ll see what I can do about the blimps 😉
Yay! There is not such thing as too much steampunk.
Regarding the flagrant display of ankle, that’s just typical webcomic fanservice. You know how these webcartoonists are, they’ll stoop to any depths for more page hits. Please try to overlook it.
“Fanservice”? I feel dirty just reading that 😉
Since Napoleon is still ruling France in the story present, this is obviously not the Victorian era yet (she wasn’t even born until 1819!). Moreover, morals were getting increasingly repressed throughout the Victorian era, so it stands to reason that the early 19th century would start out more liberal, quite possibly enough so to allow the display of ankles.
Ditto on the archive binge and such, though.
Always happy to have binge readers! Different parts of the prologue take place at different dates, with this current storyline set in the English Regency period, though historical accuracy will be a victim to my whims 😉
They have a secret backdoor? That is only for males?
Sexual discrimination! How dare they?!
So, this is happening before the girls climbed up?
The answer to your question is only pages away.
Not sure what is going on in the Incentive, but was the mystery girl expecting the guy to be taller?
As with most of the incentive images, they are teasers for what comes after the Prologue… which could be an eternity from now at this rate.
He seems singularly unimpressed with her excellent Spidey imitation. Perhaps he hasn’t seen the movie yet?
He’s playing Hard-To-Get.
A Hollow Earth plotline, of course!!
You are correct, Sir!
Only loosely based on the actual Hollow Earth.
Just re-read the archives to check if we know what the connection between Philo Farthing and the Wollstones is yet (answer: not really). This is a Prologue of truly Wagnerian proportions!
Wagnerian? Yikes. I guess you’re saying I should get to the point. I agree.
No, no, it’s all brilliant stuff, and the pacing reads fine! Just entertained that the “prologue” is now longer than the average comic book issue….. I was thinking of “Das Rheingold,” the so-called “introductory evening” to the Ring Cycle, which is actually a pretty hefty opera in it’s own right. (er, to be pretentious.)
I’m glad you feel that way, as Prologue Parts 5 & 6 are planned… after that, though, things will get UNDERway.
Ha! Made it! Fantastic comic! Adding it to my list now. 🙂 Lots to smile about here and a few good laughs as well! Loving the sisters camaraderie, this has lots of good characterization, and Napoleon to boot! Good job all around. 😀
Thanks! I’m happy to have you as a reader!
Uh, you know what? I was gonna read all that’s posted before I add it to my feeds but forget it I’m doing it now. Won’t risk losing this comic because of a sudden need to reinstall windows or something like that.
Great art, great humor, great story so far. I’ll definitely keep an eye on it.
Thanks! Glad to have you as a reader 🙂
