Classic Album Covers Redone DC Women Style
Creating album covers for superheroes isn’t a new idea - Cliff Chiang has been doing it for years - see Cliff Chiang’s mash up of Purple Rain and Batgirl.
But recently Artist Robert Jimenez created one of a kind art pieces by taking old album covers from the 50s and 60s and 70s and tweaking them to include some of the women of DC Comics. All the covers are sold now but here’s a look. If you’re arty you can probably hit a garage sale this weekend and try it yourself.
The Original Cast Album for “Red Head” (which just missed the 60s) starring Gwen Verdon (who today is known to many as the woman from whom Beyonce borrowed her “Single Lady” dance moves) has been changed into something starring Selina Kyle.

In my part of the world it is summer and that means popsicles. But I don’t think the Good Humor truck will turn up anything as cool as these by artist Chung Kong. This set of minimal pieces imagines DC, Marvel and Dark Horse characters as summer treats. And a delight they are.

1887 Catwoman by Michael Dooney
I used to love those Elseworlds like Gotham by Gaslight where they’d have Bat stories set in the past. I’d wish they’d do one just to have this Catwoman.
