Earlier this month I was at a book store and I bought a bundle of assorted comic books. One of the comics in it was Joss Whedon's Runaways. It involves teenagers with superpowers who go back in time to the early 20th century. It has assorted steampunk trappings, including a mechanical man who spits out punch cards and who delivers the line "I am the Difference Engine." I thought it was interesting.

I picked that one up a while back and rather enjoyed it.  I was glad that it didn't require extensive knowledge of the characters prior to reading it.

Fray is also well worth a look, its sort of Judge Dredd meets Buffy

I also got an issue of Runaways that takes place during the Marvel Civil War, but it has nothing to do with steampunk. Still interesting, though.
