It features Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage in an alternative universe where they have successfully built an analytical engine and use it to "fight crime". The book grew out of a webcomic of the same name. But then I started thinking, 'What if I actually did the comic? The setting describes an alternative historical reality  in which Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage have actually built an analytical engine and use it to "fight crime" at Queen Victoria 's request. The comic is based on thorough research on the biographies of and correspondence between Babbage and Lovelace, as well as other bits of early Victoriana , which are then twisted for humorous effect. Plenty of times, I've thrown something into the comic just so I'd have an excuse to refer to some document," Padua says.

Like Maus and Persepolis, Thrilling Adventures offers readers an extraordinary and inventive composite of experiences in the comics medium. This novel stands alone as brilliant testimony to some of the most pertinent and relevant new directions in comics. Padua ignites a cheeky self-awareness of elements that readers might typically associate with the genre—superheroes, science fiction, and fantasy to name a few—and deftly grounds that awareness with traditions of academic writing. Padua capably manages vast information within the mainframe of the story. Thrilling Adventures is laden to the brim with ambitious footnotes, endnotes, and appendices—these components share space with the story and often dominate entire pages. Padua clearly sustains an equal affection for Lovelace and Babbage in Thrilling Adventures , yet it is fitting that marginalia effectively takes such precedence in the book: Padua originally created the comic for the first Ada Lovelace Day in , and her ordering of Lovelace first in the title affirms a slight bias.
Look Inside. Her footnotes contained the first appearance of the general computing theory, a hundred years before an actual computer was built. Sadly, Lovelace died of cancer a decade after publishing the paper, and Babbage never built any of his machines. But do not despair! The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage presents a rollicking alternate reality in which Lovelace and Babbage do build the Difference Engine and then use it to build runaway economic models, battle the scourge of spelling errors, explore the wilder realms of mathematics, and, of course, fight crime—for the sake of both London and science. With black-and-white illustrations throughout.
