10 Delightfully Smashing Steampunk Comic Covers From DC
Looking to cash in on a genre that’s dead before it has even fully begun, DC Comics have released images of their STEAMPUNK variant covers. Ugh.
"Yeah but what is steampunk?" you ask. Good question. Steampunk is a sub-genre of science-fiction, usually set during the 19th century in Britain or America or at least borrowing the fashion sense and slang of the time period. Staples of this alternative future-past include steam-powered machinery and gadgets — sometimes including advanced computers, dirigibles, and robots all run via intricately designed clockwork — and a hodge-podge of modern and antiquated social customs and/or class structures. Think Jules Verne or China Mieville.
