Victorian society gets a new union of superlative steampunk heroes

Chet Phillips' illustrations have taken us to the steampunk Planet of the Apes and an alternate universe where Earth's greatest writers and artists are cats and dogs. His latest fantastical trading cards place familiar superheroes in the VIctorian era.

Steampunk versions of superheroes are nothing new, but there's something especially charming about Phillips' period-style illustrations and reimaginings of the heroes' biographies. Among the other super steampunks featured are the Flatiron Knight, Stupendous Gent, Empress Amazonia, Plastic Samuel, and Lord Wolverton.

Unfortunately, the set is currently sold out, though Phillips says he'll replenish his stock in the next few days.
