ARCANE SALLY & MR. STEAM is an original supernatural steampunk adventure by two award-winning creators. Our Kickstarter for the first issue raised $4,797 from 170 backers from around the world.
Arcane Sally & Mr. Steam is set in Victorian England, where Lord Percival Cawthorne, a rogue agent of the British Crown, and his faithful manservant Runnymede, must stop an elusive mastermind from unleashing Lewis Carroll’s most dangerous mathematical theories and altering the very nature of reality. Teamed up with a mysterious and obstinate agent named Miss Sally, they set out on the trail of a murderer—who has already been tried and executed! In short order, our intrepid gentlemen find themselves up to their cufflinks in saber duels, doomed locomotives, dire mathematical equations, homicidal reanimates, dueling airships, and—most terrifying of all—strong-willed women! By the story’s end, one of these daring agents will meet with Death; the other will face something far worse… True Love.
The script is by David Alton Hedges, a screenwriter from Los Angeles, CA. In 2013 David was the winner of the prestigious Academy Nicholl Screenwriting Fellowship, and a PAGE International Screenwriting competition semi-finalist. The art is by Jefferson Costa, a prolific, award-winning comic book artist and animator from São Paulo, Brazil.
