Dieselpunk Adventures!

If you like steampunk or dieselpunk you might want to check out The Adventures of the 19XX.
It's a webcomic, by Paul Roman Martinez, and it is a lot of fun.
Here's the synopsis:
"Somewhere in the 20th century…
not long after the end of the Great War, those who were capable of hearing it, received a revelation… another Great War was coming. This coming war would push the limits of technology, split the atom to create the power of a small star, and bring together forces more evil than the world has ever known. That this war would happen was man’s fatal destiny, but the outcome of the war and the details of it were not as clear. A weak League of Nations banded together to form a group. A group capable of doing what those countries could not. A group of adventurers, explorers, and scientists from every allied country to search the globe and fight a battle far from the public eye. This group is The 19XX, all the public has been told is that they are fighting for all of the good in humanity to survive the nineteen hundreds and beyond.
Their mission is to track down every powerful relic, every modern and undiscovered weapon, and every magic incantation ever uttered on the earth’s crust, because the forces of evil responsible for the next Great War would be searching for the very same thing. Nothing in the realm of the tangible or intangible is off limits when the fate of the entire world is at stake."

 And the best part- you can read it for free, right on the site. Here's the link to Book One.

And if you are a tabletop gamer, you might also be interested to know that the 19XX has a kickstarter going to create a game, based on their comics! (I have an XO package coming. Woo hoo!) 
They also have some very groovy shirts, posters, bags and patches on their website. They make their money primarily from the sale of some of those items, so if you love the series, think about buying some merchandise too.

That's all for now, Dieselpunks. 
Fly low, fly fast!
