Steampunk X-Men
by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov

Adi Granov has been wowing comic book readers with his realistic, but subtle work since his first work for Marvel with 2005's Iron Man: Extremis. Here, in Astonishing X-Men: Ghost Box #1, (Dec 2008), with Granov's subtle shading and muted colors, has put the X-Men in an amazing steampunk world of whirlygyros and blimps and the X-Men of Earth -889 in corsets and top hats. Granov's realistic detail is perfect for this Victorian era story, filling the pages with amazingly descriptive art giving a treat for all those fans of the popular Steampunk genre.
