DC Comics Goes Steampunk This February with 20 Killer Covers

Strap on your goggles, burnish your brass, and inlay wood into everything within spitting distance, because come this February, the New 52 is getting a Steampunk makeover, courtesy of DC Comics and an armada of artists. Don’t worry – this isn’t a weird Elseworlds-style event; they’re simply giving twenty of their titles a steampunk variant cover featuring artwork from illustrious illustrators like Howard Chaykin, J.G. Jones, Matteo Scalera, Dave Johnson and many more. Our pals at HitFix and Comic Book Resources had the scoop, but we’ve assembled them together here so that you might gaze upon their majesty in one convenient, centrally-located place.

    @Carole, they aren’t practically naked. In fact, I’d say they are pretty well covered, and in some cases, are wearing more than they normally do.

  2. Linc says:

    Why is Chester Arthur Superman not a thing? This should totally be a real thing!

    That being said, I also love the clockwork bats on the Batwoman cover… and the plague mask Nightwing.

  3. Trevor Culmer says:

    Star Girl, Batgirl, Batwoman, Carol Ferris and Zatana are all fully clothed. Only the Multiple iterations of Wonder Woman are sort of partially clothed…These covers are awesome but theres always that 1 person…

  4. Lasher says:

    @Carole Comics…

  5. Coyote Wiley says:

    Some of them are really, really good (ex: the Wonder Woman going into the Saloon) … and some of them ? Meh.

    Some of them look like they were rushed and drawn by a three year old.

  6. Carole says:

    How come the guys are mostly fully dressed and the women are practically naked?

  7. Alexei says:

    Needs more Batman & Superman.

  8. Nina says:

    I know some people are hating on steampunk right now but I think a lot of these look great. All the Wonder Woman look awesome!
