DC Comics Goes Steampunk In February With ‘New 52’ Variant Covers
  |  

In February 2014, DC Comics will be bringing the increasingly popular sci-fi subgenre, steampunk, to their New 52 lineup in the form of variant covers. The covers will span their most popular titles from Action Comics and Batman to Justice League and Wonder Woman. A collection of artists including Dave Johnson and Klaus Janson will be providing the covers.

The covers will feature all the trademarks of steampunk, which is a sci-fi subgenre that is generally set in an alternate Victorian era where steam and clockwork have become the predominant technology. These covers feature it all – from dirigibles and steam-powered machines to cog-driven robots and brass button covered apparel. So, so many brass buttons!

You can check out the full list of comics getting these variant covers and their artists below, along with previews of the covers.

  1. Wasn’t Harley Quinn #3 given the “Steampunk variant” treatment, too?
