How did the Steam Riggers end up where they are today? Issue #3 takes us back into the past where Tunney and Duff are new recruits, just experiencing the rigs for the first time. On their first mission, Tunney and Duff must discretely transfer valuable condensed coal that the Prussians would love to get their hands on. Everything goes perfectly; until they are ambushed. In Larry Blamire's Steam Wars, Victorian era decorum meets rugged, gritty, and powerfully powered Steam Engine technology.
