This webcomic is dedicated to chronicling the (fictional) exploits of two historical figures in the field of science. Specifically computers. Which is impressive, because computers as we know them hadn’t even been invented yet (we’re talking 19th century).
Also of note is that Ada Lovelace was the daughter of the infamous poet, Lord Bryon.
Here’s a link to the beginning of the adventures of Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage.
What I love about this work is that it hits a lot of my weaknesses in one go: eccentrics, mad science, over analysis…a lot of great elements with which to create humor that I actually enjoy.
And if that isn’t enough, it’s awesome that the author actually puts extensive notes with links and references for each post. Lots of research going into this.
