Steampunked: Batman

Another busy day, but found the time to gather this artwork inspired by a recent post on Brass Goggles. I remember reading Gotham by Gaslight back in 1989 in the middle of Tim Burton Batmania. It was the first DC Elsewhere graphic novel, where DC Comics characters are put into alternate timelines or realities and it blew me away. It seemed such a fresh idea, re-imaging such a familiar character in a Victorian setting. Of course these days the internet is full of steampunked Dark Knight Detectives and here are a few of my favourites I’ve stumbled upon.
