Well there's...

'Grandville', 'The Adventures Of Luther Arkwright' and it's sequel 'Heart Of Empire or The Legacy Of Luther Arkwright' all by Bryan Talbot.

'H.G. Wells': War Of The Worlds', it's sequels 'Scarlet Traces' and 'Scarlet Traces: The Great Game', & Stickleback: England's Glory - All by Ian Edginton & D'Israeli.

The 4 'League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen' books by Alan Moore.

I'd add 'Gotham By Gaslight: A Tale Of The Batman' and it's sequel 'Master Of The Future' if you like the 'Otherworlds' or alternate time-line kind of things.

......anybody else want to jump in here?

Five Fists of Science, apparently being re-released this month (it's not a recommendation as such as I still haven't got around to reading it)

Exactly the graphic novel I was going to mention and I can recommend it as it is most excellent.

Don't know if there are any French speakers out there but last time I visted the Motherland I found a stunning Steampunk series called 'Le Régulateur' (I think 'The Timekeeper' is best translation...). Infact the artwork was so stunning that I would recommend you buy a copy even if you don't speak the language!!

Particularly loving the cover art for book 3!

Ooooo, also, tho it's not been collected into a trade paperback yet, Ignition City (Warren Ellis) is rather good.

Ellis is forever saying that Freakangels ISN'T steampunk on his forum.

I always wanted to read the Batman story "Gotham by Gaslight". Is it any good?

I don´t know what you´d consider to be the difference, so for general comics I would suggest Ruse by the brilliant Mark Waid. It´s about master detective Simon Archard, which takes place in the victorian city of Partington and involves a bit of magic and weird science. It´s probably difficult to find though.

Well, yes, Freakangels isn't exactly steampunk, but steampunk is a big influence on it, and it influences steampunk as well.

Gotham By Gaslight is worth reading. It's not mindblowing, but it's very solid writing.

The latest volume of "Bizenghast" has quite a steam-punk aesthetic to it- the cover art and Dinah's dream sequence in particular.

David Hitchcock's Springheeled Jack. I have original artwork.

Ian Edgington's new book The Victorian Undead.

I can recommend 'Thoughtbubble' the Leeds Comicon in the UK. Held in November each year. Mr Hitchcock and Mr Talbot were both present, as was The Victorian Undead. They are outgrowing their current venue and hoping to move to The Temple Works, a former Victorian Flax mill, with a faux Egyptian temple facade, which at one time was the largest room in the world. The roof was turfed over to retain moisture in the flax, and they had sheep grazing on it, it was so large. A loverly steamy venue for a comicon.

Victorian Undead is, so far really good.  I just picked up issues 1 and 2 (issue three is due out the end of this month) and they're really well written and brilliantly drawn, and is certainly worth it if you are interested in all things Victorian, Sherlockian and Undead!

The premise of this series is basically Sherlock Holmes vs Zombies, however there is a lot more going on than just that.
