Gaslight Justice League

There is something just right about he pairing of retro futurism or Alternative Histories with action figure modding. Especially, superhero action figures. Alternative History, while long a staple of science fiction, was first introduced to me through the Hiesenbergian multi-verses of comic book mythologies. It seems a hair's breadth away from fan-fiction in the realm of reappropriating pop icons for individual purposes. Action figure modding, seems like fan-fiction made tangible. So these Steampunk renditions of the Justice League feel particularly apropos. Of course the artistry with which they are executed doesn't hurt.

My favorites are the Flash, and Hawkgirl, but you should check out all of them.
