    Only have one minor complaint/question: Why is the spine so exposed in the Morlock driven wooden Robot? It just seems like a odd design. One hit there and the entire thing would topple. Read Full Review

    The Steam Man #3 is not the best book you'll read this week but there's no doubt that for what it is it's entertaining. So by all means run out to your local comic shop and grab yourself a copy because we could all use some fun in our pull-lists. Read Full Review

    Beautifully drawn by Piotr Kowalski, the art is detailed and fluent. Kowalski brings to life the crazy genre-bending ideas that this comic throws together and makes them sensible. Although sometimes bogged down by hit or miss jokes and a stale dynamic between characters, I think The Steam Man still finds its potential in the idea of itself. This is a comic that doesn't take itself too seriously and yet still has an interesting plot with a lot of heart. A story doesn't have to be deep to be enjoyable, but this comic is definitely enjoyable. As a fan of genre mixing stuff this hits all the right points. Sometimes steampunk can get overused, but in this case both writers don't rely too heavily on it as a crutch. Fun, fast-paced, and weird, The Steam Man is a great read for those who love H.G. Wells and the fantastical stories he once wrote. Read Full Review
