SmashingBadGuysLikeItsEighteenEightyFour: Victorian age supers, anyone?
These are just too darned cool to ignore. Over at Sillof’s Workshop he’s created superhero figures that re-imagine what the Justice League of America would look like back in the Victorian Age. The figure above is 1880s-era Flash, and he’s freakin’ amazing.
This takes the ideas from Gotham by Gaslight and run with ‘em, creating a suitably Gothic/Holmsian Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Hawkgirl, Superman and (of course) Batman along the way. Victorian superheroes is just about as cool as you can get without actually exploding.
Considering there are hand-crafted one-of-a-kind figures, the detail is just amazing too. Check out the lacing on the Flash’s boots!
Enough raving. Go looksee. Now!
Darn. Now I want to create Victorian superheroes
