Comic Book: Meridian
Meridian is a comic by CrossGen. It's set in a universe of flying ships and floating islands. The comic follows a noble girl named Sephie and her uncle Ilahn, both of whom receive mysterious Sigils at a reception on Meridian, the island that Sephie's father rules. Each Sigil seems to grant a different set of powers; Sephie focuses on healing and gentle pressure, while Ilahn uses his abilities for destruction and intimidation.

This series provides examples of:

  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The dark, brooding uncle's powers of destruction are red. The cheery and friendly girl's powers are yellow/gold.
  • Cool Airship: The flying airships that travel between islands count as this.
  • Fertile Feet: Sephie falls from a flying ship at high altitude and lands in a toxic wasteland, making a human-shaped crater around which plants start to grow.
  • Floating Continent: The wealthy in the world of Meridian live on floating continents to stay away from the polluted (Blighted) ground.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: See color coded above.
  • Grey Goo: The ground pollution that causes ground structures to erode and fall apart quite quickly. All surface cities are continually being rebuilt.
  • A Million Is a Statistic: The girl's uncle sends an entire floating island to the ground, killing nearly everyone on board. Somehow it has less emotional impact then the death of the girl's parents.
  • Sky Pirates: Where there's flying airships, there's sky pirates.
  • Steampunk: But only if you're wealthy enough to live on a floating island. Also some coalpunk for the super industrial island.
