One of our readers, Mark, suggested that the following online comic may be an example of Clockpunk. So here it is.

    Talking about comics, maybe Vögelein could be interesting. I found it on here. Sadly, the preview link seems to be broken at the moment.
    It’s a comic book by Jane Irwin. The second volume is just getting released. The synopsis on her website says this:

    “Vögelein is a clockwork Faerie, crafted in Bavaria in 1692 by a master watchsmith named Heinrich Uhrmacher. Heinrich originally created her as a tribute to a lost love, but Vögelein quickly became her own person.

    She carries with her a tiny silver key, her link to life- and remembering. Her three hundred years of eidetic memories can be both blessing and curse: if Vögelein winds down, she begins to lose her memories, starting with the most recent first.

    Through the years she has been passed from Guardian to Guardian like a treasured family heirloom, handed down to trusted people who will continue to wind her every day.”

    Thanks for the link Mark, I just recovered your comment from the flagged commented, hence the late reply. This is definately something worth looking into and even a post of its own.
