Kickstarter - Skies of Fire comic, An epic new comic featuring gigantic diesel-powered airships and their duels in the high skies. Not steampunk but certainly of interest, because of *Airships*! Skies of Fire takes place in the fictional Aquilan Empire, a kingdom roughly analogous to post-WW1 Great Britain. Instead of a navy, the Aquilans maintain a vast fleet of airships to defend its colonies, trade routes, and holdings. In the center of the Empire lies a monstrous, never-ending storm called The Expanse. It’s so dangerous not even the Royal Fleet dares venture into it for fear of losing its ships, personnel, and cargo. Naturally, that’s made The Expanse a haven for those who would prey on the Empire for their own gain. Ends April 11th.
