Rust is a high-octane adventure set in the prairie lands of an unknown time. Life on the Taylor family farm was difficult enough before Jet Jones crashes into the barn, chased by a giant decommissioned war robot! Oldest son Roman Taylor struggles to keep his family's small farm afloat as the area heals from a devastating world war. While the rest of his family may not trust the mysterious boy with the jetpack, Roman believes the secrets of Jet's past may be the key to their survival.

You'll believe a boy (robot) can fly. Everything about this is well designed, especially visually. The characters, the production period design, the action, with really cool robots. It's a little later than steam punk, more electromechanical punk, from the 20s-40s perhaps, in some place like central Kansas or the Canadian plains. It's a bit frustrating since it is only vol. 1 but the rest of the series promises to be worth the wait. And while it may be considered a teen book, I think anyone who like graphic novels will enjoy this.
