Modern Antarctic Press: Steam Wars: First Empire #1 and 2

These next two Steam Wars issues continue to use imagery that is inspired by Star Wars.

Steam Wars: First Empire #1a - Antarctic Press, U.S. (September 2015)
Steam Wars: First Empire #2a - Antarctic Press, U.S. (December 2015)
Steam Wars: First Empire #1 shows characters that I cannot relate back to specific Star Wars characters, but it is easy enough to see the inspiration.  The female looks like a darksider, holding a red sword, aglow like a lightsaber.  The soldiers behind the female have helmets that look like a cross between Mandalorian and Darth Vader's helmet.  Steam Wars: First Empire #2 is more easily recognized for it's Star Wars root.  It shows a steampunk version of an AT-AT bearing down on an individual brandishing a sword and dressed in desert garb.
