Warren Ellis discovered x planes while doing research for his new steampunk-comic, Ignition City. I haven’t read it yet, but if x-planes is anything to go by, I’ll definitely have to check it out. Dirigibles, Tupolevs, hot-air balloons - the photos are nice and big, and the explanations very brief. Just the way we Twittards like it!
