Fussy Faux Victorian Cover

Captain Swing and the Electrical Pirates of Cindery Island #1, by Warren Ellis and Raulo Caceres

This is an example of that popular genre known to the young people as steam punk, where you set something in Victorian England (typically London) and then ramp up the technology level. So this features members of London's new Metropolitan Police Force squaring up against Spring Heeled Jack and some weird electrical flying ship. It is somewhat interesting, but also somewhat underwhelming, so I may or may not bother with the second issue.
