An Extra Suggested Reading: A Pinch of Snuff

Greetings, delicious friends!  Remember that awesome browser game I told you about?  Check out Fallen London now, if you missed it.  Well, if you do remember, and fell as much in love with the game as I did, here’s a lovely little treat for you!

Failbetter is not only working on their new, non-browser PC game, The Sunless Sea, but on comics now as well.  Here’s a tantalizing little taste of the gruesome  and glorious work.

A Pinch of Snuff is a wonderful first taste of a comic series that is only just beginning.   It is dim, dank, and delectable.   The art by Paul Arendt is a perfect example of the sublime and shadowy beauty of Fallen London, while the story by Chris Gardiner is funny and sinister in all the right ways.

To be plainly honest with you, I want them to make more of this comic because I think it could be awesome.  So, please go read it, giggle, comment, and share!  If you have a gently dark sense of humor, or just like a bit of intrigue and bizarre, this little comic is sure to give you a chuckle.


Are you an author who loves Steampunk as much as I do?   Or, are you just a big big fan of a Steampunk/Neo-Victorian author?  Would you like to see  your favorite book, comic, or your own work featured on this blog?  Please leave a comment on this post with a short pitch and a link!   I’ll happily feature anything that I think will fit the style of my blog.  And even if I don’t feature it, please please leave your info in a comment anyway!  Who doesn’t love new books?
