Whitechapel Steampunks The Batman and it is Awesome

Warren Ellis regularly throws out remake/remodel challenges to the talent gathered on the Whitechapel forum, and this latest one is turning into quite a doozy: Steampunk Batman.

From Ellis’s explanatory text:

Immerse yourself in the era of Steampunk, and the coal-fired industrial nightmare of Gotham, where is set the popular silent films concerning The Batman. Or even The Bat-Man, if you prefer.

[…]

Your task is to design a poster, suitable for placement outside a cinematheque or other theatre, regarding one of these films. There are several in the series I have not mentioned, and you are of course free to make those up. I mean, use them wisely.

The creation above, by Michael Nelsen, is but one of the many steampunk movie posters assembled.

Here’s a handful more of our favorites from the challenge. See them all (and MUCH more) in full-size at the above Steampunk Batman link:
