I prefer Fullmetal Alchemist to the FMA Brotherhood revamp.  Strictly speaking it's not steampunk as it's timeline is around WW2.
Shou Tucker has got to be one of the best shonen villains ever but it's the love between the brothers that makes it sparkle.

The manga is top-notch too.  There's a frame where Lust is sat on a train reading a newspaper with a headline about a British agent being shot - a nod to You Only Live Twice.   8)

But ... if fishes were courses then we'd all be eating hake ...

Having never read steampunk before, I recently picked up Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, mostly because they were on about it in Locus magazine. I wasn't too impressed to be honest, the story was fine I suppose but didn't really grip me and I wasn't too fond of her writing style. I was just wondering how representitive this book was of the genre, so has anyone more familiar with steampunk read it? Opinions?

Theres a brilliant Japanese Anime film from 2004 called Steamboy. It's set in an alternate steampunk 19th century Europe. Check it out
