I heard its based on Jacques Tardi's comic book series of the same name all about the adventures of a female pulp writer turned journalist/detective. Dark Horse comics republished the series in English.

Doesn't look very steampunk to me... just pulpy.
Whenever I get confused about D&D alignment morality, I just imagine Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Ghandi arm wrestling shirtless on the back of a killer whale.

In other words, I remember that it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense and deal with it best I can.

i agree, it doesn't have a punkish feel to it but a wonderful victorian macabe atmosphere instead. Must brush up on my French...
A writer is congenitally unable to tell the truth and that is why we call what he writes fiction. – William Faulkner
