Superman Wonder Woman Steampunk by urban-barbarian Superman Wonder Woman Steampunk by urban-barbarian
A series of special alternate covers were created for DC Comics hits the stands in February 2014.  I drew three of them but I liked this one the best.  Inspired by an idea from Josh Barnett [ apparently a man of many talents! ]

Mr. Panosian. If someday you work for regular artist in Superman or Acton Comics I`m going to live a dream come true! Your art is awesome.

I hope Superman and Wonder Woman stay as a status quo couple in DC for now on, Lois Lane is just all wrong for Superman in my opinion. She's so mean to Clark Kent and Superman all the time in the comics, plus Superman would brake Lois' scrawny neck if they ever did it :)

Wonder Woman is actually Superman's equal, she's not bitchy like Lois is, she wears a more....interesting attire than Lois and she's a lot nicer to Superman and Clark Kent. 

Seriously what is wrong with Clark Kent/ Superman for liking women who treat him like crap after all he does for them?

And here I was thinking that working on comics was just tell some fine stories and enjoy drawing.... gosh! Was i mistaken.... REALLY love this piece, Dan. Iīm a sucker for anything with a soviet reminisence and this steampunk piece, has that quality, sort of :)
The rest, itīs just people. You know youīre an artistic wild force, please donīt let those "genius" commenting get you.
Best to you and the wife on this 2014!

I've only just read the other comments -- I'm obviously a sociopolitical moron. When I first saw this piece, I was overwhelmed by its beauty. THEN, I wondered what Supes was carrying in those cases and thought this exact phrase: "Batman must not have a gadget to carry all his other gadgets". I even imagined Bruce was still on the train arguing with Flash about all the laws of physics he breaks when he uses his powers.

Thanks man.  If the glass is half full - it's a cute piece.  If it's half empty I guess it's something demeaning...  Depends if you're having a good or bad day I suppose.  I meant it to be fun.  I like the interpretation that Superman lost a bet with Wonder Woman personally.  I had two friends of mine in mind when I drew it.  They have a great relationship.

Wow- I think it's time for an Andrew rant. First off, Dan you're a beauty. You handled yourself marvelously in the face of some real social fascists. Their speculation into your mindset behind these beautiful drawings without giving you the benefit of the doubt, is just appalling. 
As artists we must create without imprisoning our imaginations to the thought police and let the chips fall where they may.
I think we should all be focused on real problems; women who aren't allowed to read, dictators starving their people, Iran seeking the atomic bomb. If only more men carried luggage and opened doors for women and vise versa- oh what a better world it could be.

Wow.

Thanks Andrew.  Well spoken.  I agree 100%.  That sort of energy would definitely be better spent working towards peace and true equality/justice.  When a man carrying luggage for a woman becomes a boiling point - I think there's a lot of misdirected anger/energy going on.  I offered a bunch of possible storylines and even a pre-dialogue to explain a rather common and polite gesture.  It never seemed good enough.  Some people want to fight I guess.  I understand the whole Wonder Woman doesn't need a man's help.  I get it.  But who doesn't appreciate kindness.  After looking at Supe's expression again I guess one could read into it.  I just thought it was a serious look.  But people see what they want to see.

If you focus on injustice you'll see it in everything.  If you're on the look out for the color red - there it is!  If you focus on happiness, it's there too.  I like focusing on happiness, as silly as that sounds. 

Thanks again and thank you for the kind words Andrew.  Much appreciated.
