David O'Connell's Tozo is a rather popular webcomic that's got a rich story line and has been running for almost 5 years now. Like Girl Genius, it's in the Steampunk style and, also like Girl Genius, it takes place on an Earth parallel, in Europe. The setting is a stand-in for Venice, but the papacy has headquartered there rather than Rome..... and there's something mysterious happening on the European mainland involving an asteroid.
Panel 2 there is the first glimpse of the map of Nova Venezia there is the offices of its ruler the Doge, Lady Celestine.... although this version of Venice doesn't quite look like ours.
Professor Borello, who made him that little mecha-golem Klikker in that first panel, who was preceded by Tikker who the professor also made, but who ran off and became a spy for the resistance against the Spider Empire on the mainland.
Uh-oh! War has broken out between The Doge and the Papacy. That's not good!
