Age of Blight
What if the end of humanity is not caused by some cataclysmic event, but by the nature of humans themselves? These sf stories explore a kind of post-future - in which humanity is finally abandoned to the end of its history - as well as the nature of dystopia itself.

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.
