Archangel From The Winter's End Chronicles is a steampunk web series set in 1893 London.
In this alternate history tale, humanity has harnessed the power of both steam and steel to achieve staggering technological advances.
Exploration of the natural world has reached unparalleled heights.
Sadly, instead of this being a golden age of enlightenment, a vast criminal network, known as "The League," has corrupted the world's governments, and oppresses its peoples.
Out of this troubled time arises a vigilante who is dedicated to utterly destroying The League. He comes to be publicly known as Archangel.
Archangel is extremely well-produced, with an aesthetic that represents the best of steampunk, including gorgeous clock-work props, detailed costuming, intricate sets, and sepia-tinged cinematography that gives the series a rich, period feel.
The series is produced by Atlanta Cutlery Corp./Museum Replicas Ltd. - a leading manufacturer of armor, swords, and other edged weapons used to produce collectibles based on many Hollywood properties, such as Game of Thrones.
This explains why the costumes, props, and sets have a verisimilitude often only associated with big-budget period movies.
The cast also rises to the occasion, with the actors turning in fine performances vital in bringing the series to vivid life.
The first episode of Archangel mainly serves as a primer, introducing viewers to this intriguing world and its major players.

The second episode of the series is also available Archangel Episode II.
More episodes are planned, which will expand the mythology of the series.
Archangel is yet another promising web series in the increasingly popular steampunk genre. With its fascinating premise and exceptional production value, I look forward to seeing more stories set in this imaginative world.
