Rucka, Burchett launch Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether

Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether

Writer Greg Rucka and artist Rick Burchett launched their swashbuckling steampunk webcomic today, Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether. As announced back in April, Rucka said the comic is “steampunk, pirates, western thing,” noting it would feature airships, floating islands, gunslingers and sword fights.

“Swords are cool. People fighting with swords are cool. Airships are cool. Cowboys are cool. Pirates are cool. Clockwork men are cool. Smart, savvy, witty women are very cool. Laconic gunslingers? Totally cool. Steampunk? Frosty,” the strip’s “About” page reads. “That’s what Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether is, that’s what it’s about. The adventures of the Lady Seneca Sabre and those she meets along the way as she travels the Sphere. Who she fights, who she foils, who she befriends. It’s about adventure and romance and excitement and, to paraphrase the great Zaphod Beeblebrox, ‘really wild things.'”

They plan to update the comic every Monday and Thursday, and they’re also selling a limited edition print (above) featuring the title character. Go check it out, or at least add it to your RSS feed for updates.



In my opinion, this book should be titled “Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Effing Aether.”

Ineffable-aether-dot-com? I am never going to spell that correctly.

Among the impossibly huge cast of LADY SABRE & THE PIRATES OF THE EFFING INEFFABLE AETHER, there are Averell Weatherell and Aethelread the Ealdorman. Just wait for it.

Is it just the one page so far? And its free?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this creative team! From back when they were doing the Batman books.

Hopefully after they produce enough pages they print them too. I would buy anything these two produce together.
