Powder Mage #3: The Autumn Republic
The capital city of Adro lies in the hands of a foreign invader. Field Marshal Tamas' son is missing, his allies are indistinguishable from his foes, and reinforcements are several weeks away. With the Kez bearing down upon them, the Adran army has turned against itself. Inspector Adamat is drawn into the very heart of this new mutiny with promises of finding his kidnapped son. And Taniel Two-shot, hunted by men he once thought his friends, must safeguard the only chance Adro has of getting through this war without being destroyed.

The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage: The (Mostly) True Story of the First Computer
Black & white. In our reality, Charles Babbage planned but never built a mechanical calculating machine, and in 1842, when Ada, Countess of Lovelace, translated a description of Babbage's plans for the machine, she added annotations three times longer than the original work, and her footnotes contained the first appearance of the general computing theory. In this graphic novel's alternate Victorian England, these two brilliant mathematicians team up to build the Difference Engine, and then use it to build runaway economic models, battle the scourge of spelling errors, explore the wilder realms of mathematics, and fight crime for the sake of both London and science.
