Sydney Padua, who admits the whole thing is experimental, as she's not a comic artist by profession, describes it as:
either the agonizing birth pangs, or monstrous death-throes, of a comic.
I hope it proceeds to fruition. Her style is brilliant (akin to that of Posy Simmonds) and the commentary about the history and development process is worth reading too:
Isambard Kingdom Brunel was like the Wolverine of the early Victorians.
I read the extraordinary Charles Babbage’s comic masterpiece of an autobiography. I urge everyone to read it immediately. It has charts. CHARTS!
And there are generally interesting (if you're a bit geeky) Lovelace/Babbage links such as the Lego and Meccano Difference Engines. The merchandise is fun too, especially that with the nice ST:TNG pastiche of Ada working in the Difference Tubes.
