Hi Steampunkers!

I’m just curious about what you favourite steampunk stories or movies would be.

My first encounters would be with Japanese animations, like Miyazaki’s Laputa Castle in the Sky and Howl’s Moving Castle. Many of the Japanese sci-fi westerns have some steampunk elements (like Trigun).

There are episodes of The Books of Magic comic series that fall under this classification too (well, I think so anyway!)

I always loved the movie Dune for its fantastic set design…cool studded brass hatches and crazy computers. Awesome.

Love those awesome lizards in Howl’s too…can’t resist a flying reptile!!! :D

Oh yeah, Dune was a great world setting with the removal of computerisation!

LOL, you and flying lizards :)
