Welcome to La Macchina Bellica! Macchina is a wartime romance/drama in a neo-Victorian setting. The comic will be updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday!
This comic is drawn in traditional media- penciled then inked with Sakura microns on Blue Line Pro paper. Reduced 67% then toned in Manga Studio. Speech bubbles and other text/minor tweaking in Photoshop CS2.
La Macchina Bellica takes place on Vesudha, a planet vaguely reminiscent of Earth. It is divided into two continents, Feuerland and Calanthia.
For nearly a thousand years, the two continents have been in constant struggle for territory. With the unearthing of buried technology, both sides have been building steam powered war machines. As more technology is uncovered from various ruins and dig sites around the planet, the battle escalates. Peace is tenuous and strained at best, and rarely lasts more than a few months or years.
This story follows both sides of the conflict: the Devons, a Calanthian family living in the capital city of Solaris, torn by internal strife and the story of the Feuerlandian battleship the Reinheit.
