Ok, let me rephrase that. It was the end of steampunk

Yeah, but the whole idea of steampunk sort of revolves around the Victorian era. WW2 is quite a large jump from that period, WW1 is not. And while there was a lot of progress during WW2, something about WW1 screams steampunk. Probably because it is a lot closer to the Victorian era.


The Young Victoria was an awesome movie. Just thought I throw that out there.  :)

That totally makes since. It's hard to squeeze decades into one book. And WWI is definetly more steampunk than WWII.
But steampunks can make the machines from WII and WIII stronger. Think about it. More casualties, and more soldiers. Space battle on the moon, man!
You know, there is a reason... we never went back to the moon

The Victorian Era ended with the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen... WWI happen during the Churchill Era

All I am saying is the Victorian era is more similar to WWI than it is to WWII.

No WWI is more similar to the Churchillic Era... because it is IN THE CHURCHILLIC ERA

I know that WWI was during Churchill's time. But I never even mentioned Churchill. Perhaps I should rephrase. Steampunk is Victorian. WWI reminds me of Victorian steampunk awesomeness more than WWII does.
