Anno Dracula
1888: Queen Victoria has remarried, taking as her new consort the Wallachian prince Count Dracula. His polluted bloodline spreads through London as its citizens increasingly choose to become vampires. In the backstreets of Whitechapel, a killer known as Silver Knife is cutting down vampire girls. The eternally young vampire Genevieve Dieudonne and Charles Beauregard of the Diogenes Club are drawn together as they both hunt the sadistic killer, bringing them ever closer to England's most bloodthirsty ruler yet. Plus annotations and an afterword by the author, as well as an alternate ending (first published in The Mammoth Book of Vampires), excerpts from the film script, essay 'Drac the Ripper', and short story 'Dead Travel Fast'.

Padua, Sydney  
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.
