The shop crew of Airship Isabella takes the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS. Thank you Chris Ayers for this!

Oh yeah and we challenged: John Strangeway (aka Steampunk Boba Fett), Cannon Trawets and the Airship 67, Jesse Thaxton, Brian Oliver (aka the Tin Man), Ant Schmitt, League of G.E.A.R.S., and Ken Sharkey Braden and Erin Crowley.

Also, included in this edition of the Misadventures we are featuring the story of the last comic for you to read. We want you to be able to enjoy the wonderful art that is just spilling out of our Art Department, but also get to read the stories that they draw their inspiration from for these little one page illustrated pieces.

“Summer Punk”

The summer here was hot. Hotter than most the crew might experience on any given day in the life of the Isabella’s ventures. It was so hot, in fact, that the aether needed to power the jump drive allowing them to travel from place to place, had grown too thin to collect. Because of this, the ship had deployed their large balloon to keep from drifting too low to the surface and risk being detected. That, unfortunately, had been days ago…

Amelia Whittaker sat with fan in hand on the largest of the covered decks sipping an iced tea. Her dress, much like the rest of the crew’s, had turned into the smallest showing of clothing required to still be dressed for mixed company and not stew to death in sweat in ones own sweat. Audra, their mechanic, sat beside her dazed and red-faced in the sweltering heat.

Luthiem grumbled to herself as she forced open a jar of blood. The heat had since turned her supply to a coagulated mess. With a mournful look she proceeded to dump the contents off the bow and over the side. “Can’t we refill any faster…” She whined.

Amelia’s head swung languidly to face her, “No…and don’t dump that over the side, it’ll fall somewhere and likely be a bad day for somebody.”

This is edition 1 of our ongoing shorts. We will be publishing a new page twice a month, so hang out with us to see more like this. Each page is done by a different artist so keep an eye on that as well. These comics are basically little character stories about individuals and small groups of us in our day to day lives. These are little happenings that go between the big adventures we have and are a slice of the life on the Isabella.

Now, without further babbling I give you “Summer Punk” written by Rebecca Harrison and made visual by David Orenday.

It's Hot Up Here

Long Overdue Update

It’s that time again for a long overdue update. We recently returned to Home Port after a 3 week stint in various variations of Texas. Dropping into the Wonderland Reality to deal with a bit of relic shenanigans at the Steampunk World of Wonderland, followed by an extended stay in Great Texas for A-Kon 25. After we finished all our country dancing and cow tipping fun (not really, no cows were even touched… but can’t you see Suzeaux trying this), we headed off to Louisianime before scuttling (Woop woop woop woop wooop wooop) back home.

All the events were absolutely memorable. We held and impromptu auction at Steampunk WoW and frightened shoppers in the Goblin Market at A-Kon (Thanks Ben Hamby of The Sky D.O.G.S for letting us help with this). Finally Louisianime was the blast it always is; Vampires, Steampunks, Anime and a random Sunday drag show… How can you go wrong?

Now that we are finally home we are getting caught back up on everything. I have made some updates to the Etsy, Attica has posted new chapters to the Battle of Charmelle and everyone has gone on a cleaning rampage!

Keep your eyes out for more amazing art, comics, and writing here. We will also be posting cool new things that you can get from our Etsy. We are also ramping up for the Endless Nights event with a couple large prop/decoration builds, so this should be an amazing fall season (if it will ever get here and not be so hot).
