It's an anime; basically world gets flooded and weird anthro mutants want to exterminate humans but they were also made by a human but they think humans are bad because it's a retro anime and it was heavy with symbolic "nuclear weapons are horrible"- now that i think about it, the only thing that makes them similar is that there's a whole lot of ocean.
How big are these ships? It's a little hard to judge scale based on the comic, but I'd assume they're about the size of a skyscraper or at least a tall building turned on its side or something. I just remember in volume 2 Seth Weever mentions that the Pristidae is somewhat smaller than the Balena, and that was an aircraft carrier, so the Balena must be pretty big.
The Balena is 633 meters in length, so... you know the Acclamators from the Clone Wars era? Those are 752 meters, so I'd say the Balena's about as long if you left out the Acclamator's tail section.
One other thing that just occurred to me, is the propulsion on these city ships magneto-hydrodynamic propulsion like in The Hunt for Red October? Because I don't think I've seen a single propeller on any vessel in this issue and the engine design of the Balena suggests some kind of intake manifold in the front.
Cool ship designs, are there any underwater or floating cities in this world or does everyone live on subs like these ones?
I like the thought of putting stuff like this on the chapter-covers, it could be a neat way to give a bit more background info about the setting without interrupting the story for exposition.
