Abstract
Published in 1993, Sebastian O was one of the first steampunk comics published. However, Grant Morrison and Steve Yeowell’s contribution to the formation of steampunk, specifically their role in creating the first steampunk comic, is frequently overlooked. Sebastian O helped define the recognisable characteristics of neo-Victorian steampunk. By focusing on the works of Victorian decadents such as Oscar Wilde, Sebastian O reconsiders the Victorian literary legacy in light of contemporary social attitudes. Additionally, Sebastian O provides an opportunity for critical reflection on canonical works of decadence and aestheticism.
