A Dieselpunk Airship Story of Loyalty and Revenge
Hey El Moochadores! Another great project we encountered at WonderCon 2016 was a Dieselpunk comic series about warring airships (war dirigibles!?) called Skies of Fire! The series is by Vincenzo Ferriero and Ray Chou, with additional art by Pablo Peppino, Bryan Valenza, and Nic J Shaw. The series will have a limited run that they are currently trying to fund through Kickstarter. Here’s the story:
Skies of Fire takes place in the Aquilan Empire, a kingdom where airship travel has become the dominant means of transportation, commerce, and war. In the center of the Empire lies a monstrous, never-ending storm called The Expanse.
In Issue One, the raider Delmonte orchestrates a surprise attack on the key trade outpost, Port Prince. His actions prompt Royal Guard Captain Helen Pierce to volunteer for an expedition to bring him to justice…
Giant metal dirigibles shooting the hell out of each other. Awesome! I’ve posted the Kickstarter promotional video below along with a few sample images. We also got a short interview with Ray Chou at the con which you’ll be able to hear on the next Moocast ( It’s almost done!), episode #115.
