This time last year we introduced the new comic book series by Arcana - Steam Engines of OZ.
In May, for Free Comic Book Day, we had a blast giving out the very first issue. Then in October we had our huge giveaway of the first three issues.
At the same time, Arcana had a very successful Kickstarter campaign and started creating Volume 2 of the series - Steam Engines of OZ - The Geared Leviathan.
The Steam Engines of Oz is back in an all-new story! Return to Arcana's World of Oz, set 100 years after The Wizard of Oz in a Steampunk future. Encounter old friends and new characters along the way as Victoria learns the secret of twins tied to Oz's infamous past. Along the way, a father searches for his lost sons, a fallen hero is on the path to redemption, former prisoners adjust to life among the rough n' tumble Munchkins, and, most importantly, What is the Geared Leviathan!?!
This volume takes up a short time after the end of Volume 1 - Steam Engines of Oz.
There is a new threat in the land, as well as a new secret soon to be revealed. It is full of action and all my favourite characters from the first volume are back!
Here is a little teaser for you...
The artwork, as you can see, is just as gorgeous and colourful as in the first. I would get this just for the artwork, but the writing is wonderful as well. I love their reinterpretation of OZ and how well they have expanded its history. Volume 2 is a perfect compliment to the first and the whole story just wouldn't be complete without it.
If you enjoyed Steam Engines of Oz, then you'll be downright giddy about Volume 2.
