"Die Corsaren der Alkibiades" is a story about secret agencies in 1825 which battle one another for technology and power. It has everthing you wish for, from steampowered sailing ships which convert into airships... submarines, Victorian tanks on the northpole and so on. The story is a bit confusing but the drawings are fantastic right down to the last detail.

Maybe it will also be translated soon.

Sounds interesting—is it on-line anywhere or purely hardcopy?

I agree!! I don't like reading books or comics online.
Besides, you support the author by buying it. And good work deserves reward...

Quite possibly true, but being hardcopy only does tend to limit readership. I doubt I shall have the opportunity to peruse this work to assess its merits.  Sad

Mh, true.
For me it is easy to get almost every English book or comic, but I guess it might be harder for you to buy a book from the German-speaking market... (And I'm saying that without any irony..)
But look: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Die-Korsaren-Alkibiades-02-Rivale/dp/3770433610
Amazon has it. I would probably buy it from Amazon, too, or make my local bookstore order it, so it wouldn't cost you more effort to buy it than it would cost me.
(Except that it is still in German... so you might want to wait for the translated version, and then it would be even easier to get.)
