The surviving members of the Steam Man's intrepid crew have lost all hope. Now captives of the vengeful and vicious Dark Rider and victims of his hideous torture, they can only watch helplessly as the Rider initiates Armageddon-but just because the crew is down for the count, don't count the Steam Man himself out of the fight!

    Compared to previous issues, this final issue is much darker in both art and story. That actually manages to intensify the world, as the Captain, Feather, and the Dark Rider end their clash in a brutal, and violent way. I will admit the more I read this issue, I could see the influence of Mike Mignola. Especially in the close up of the Dark Rider, which has a grotesque, predatory appearance. Read Full Review

    A visceral, tense yet highly gratifying ending to this excellent series by two writers who I hope work much more in the industry and an excellently fitting art team. Highly recommended to any mature readers who enjoy the Steampunk genre. Read Full Review

    Obviously, if you have all of the other four issues, then you will be buying this one anyway. Wont you? Its not the strongest of the series, but its not the weakest either. Anyway, who gets this far in only to buy four out of five issues? The big question at this point should be, will The Steam Man be worth buying when its collected? Well, yes it will. Its a tidy little story and it was worth the telling. Read Full Review
