Batman and Wonder Woman by mlpeters Batman and Wonder Woman by mlpeters
This combines characters from two DC Elseworlds tales -- Gotham by Gaslight and Amazonia, featuring Victorian age versions of Batman and Wonder Woman. It was drawn for a benefit to help comics writer William Mesner-Loebs printed in a benefit book from Two-Morrows and auctioned off.

Amazonia was an Elseworlds book written by Mesner-Loebs and given it's setting, it seemed cool to pair her with the Batman from Gotham by Gaslight (always liked that book -- where artist Mike Mignola became famous).

No, but it made sense with the two Victorian versions of the characters - - the Gotham by Gaslight Batman and Amazonia Wonder Woman.  I drew it for a benefit to help out Amazonia's writer, William Messner-Loebs when he and his wife fell on hard times, due to some medical expenses, IIRC.

always was surprised they didn't bring these two concepts together.

Agree! If they ever did, I'd love the chance to draw it... but even if I didn't get the gig, that's a book I'd buy.

Sorry for the late reply... and sorry that my connection won't allow watching your youtube thing. Rural dial-up and video don't mix.

I read Countdown Arena, which had Amazonia Diana in it, and then I bought Amazonia. I really get the feeling the writer didn't do his homework when he wrote her dialogue in Arena. Wonderful art.

I had fun drawing this picture. I haven't read Countdown Arena, but like the original Amazonia book.
