Steam Powered Giraffe The Comic FAQ

What happened to the old Steam Powered Giraffe Comic?

The “old comic” is being retrofitted. Some pages have to be redrawn, but most of the existing pages are still being used. We’ve also taken some creative liberty to move things around to serve the story better.

What’s the plot?

The Steam Powered Giraffe Comic takes place in present day in San Diego, California. Faceless inventor Peter Walter VI is visited in his manor by his new intern: a young lady named Lorene Keaton. But the woman is a little unprepared for the zany antics of the family that lives in the manor. Some of them are mutants and some of them are robots, but that seems to be common affair for a legacy of mad inventors.
An ongoing rivalry with another scientific family places motive when one of Walter’s prized artifacts is stolen. Peter and his robots must set off into a parallel dimension to recover the artifact before it falls into the wrong hands. But the stakes are high as the plot thickens, twists, and continually derails thanks to Peter’s three clueless androids and a myriad of non-sequiturs.

Is this going to be a continuing series or a one shot?

This will be a collection of multiple issues and finally a self-contained graphic novel.

Will this be released in print or online?

The first two issues are available for free online. Subsequent issues can be purchased from our store! We do plan to release a collection book of the comic upon its conclusion.

Who is writing and illustrating?

The story is written by Isabella Bunny Bennett, with additional writing from Sam Luke and David Bennett. The art is drawn by Isabella mostly. Sam Luke provides art and additional line work in Issue #2.  Gabi Gonzales also has contributed to the second issue doing background art and coloring.

Each issue will credit the artists involved!

Will we learn more about the back story of the robots?

You will get to see the robots as they appeared in Victorian times in Becile and Walter’s infamous Weekend War and various other points throughout history. With that of course comes tidbits of the back story. We’re treating the comic like the viewer has never heard of Steam Powered Giraffe- so there is exposition weaved in.

Does the comic primarily take place in Walter Manor?

The majority of the comic will take place in Kazooland, the dimension where The Cavalcadium resides. But we do get to see plenty of Walter Manor!

Is Rabbit going to be a girl in the comics?

Rabbit appears in the present fully transitioned, but there are flashbacks and references to prior.

Will we be learning more about the interrelations between The Cavalcadium, the Brown Suits, the Walters, and the Beciles?

The Cavalcadium, the Brown Suits, the Walters, and the Beciles are all featured in the comic. You can definitely expect to learn more about them and how they fit into the world!

When will more issues be released?

We’re hoping semi-quarterly, but it’s up to the Isabella and the time she spends working on them!
