Ignition City is a five-issue science fiction comic book limited series, written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Gianluca Pagliarani.


Ignition City is set in the dieselpunk alternate history year of 1956, where World War II was interrupted by a Martian invasion. As a result, space travel became commonplace. Ignition City itself is a circular island spaceport, the interior of which is populated by former spacemen. The story follows Mary Raven; a young woman who travels to Ignition City after her father, a once-famous spaceman named Rock Raven, is killed there.
