TEASER: Greg Rucka’s Lady Sabre & The Pirates of the Ineffable Aether

It doesn't take much to get me excited about a new Greg Rucka project with art by Rick Burchett, so when this teaser page when up at ineffableaether.com, I got happy. Especially after I realized that it didn't say "ineffable leather" which would have been weird.

On July 11, the webcomic starts up. You'll find links to the RSS feed, Twitter, and Facebook.

You'll also find the following image of a sword. Or sabre, with this text, which gets me all ready to set sail in a Patrick O'Brian sort of way.

…vessels closed with Pegasus firing upon the Hollern fourth-rate Steelblade, striking amidships and dismasting the mizzen. At boarding, it is reported Her Ladyship led the bloody engagement, leaving fourteen dead, twice again that number wounded, before taking the ship a prize…

~Excerpt, The Rose Herald, 5-29 IV.E 898


You smell that sea air?

    I really liked Greg Rucka and Rick Burchett’s Batman work so I’ll be keeping an eye on this. Thanks for the heads up!

  10. @Bryce31  Burchett is a master. Doesn’t do much comic work these days, but when he does, it’s top notch.

    @josh  @Bryce31  Actually, Burchett is currently doing the art for The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which I’m enjoying very much. He’s doing it in the style of the TV show, but he’s doing it very well.

  12. Man, I love Rucka, and this sounds awesome, but I’m just not interested in web comics.

  13. That is most decidedly not a sabre.

  14. @jcr0042  SWORD NERD!

  15. They’ve updated the image to have a flintlock looking pistol over the non-sabre. 🙂 

    PS: Typo: “went” not “when” in the first sentence.  Sorry… can’t help it.
