Since the 1960s, Sports Illustrated has been serving up a mix of fashion, glamour and controversy with its annual Swimsuit Issue, known for its cover shoots featuring models and celebs. Now DC Comics is giving its superheroes the same treatment, peeling our favourite characters out of their capes and skintight suits.

Getting in just in time for the end of summer, the G’nort’s Swimsuit Edition features a range of popular DC characters cavorting at the beach in trunks and bikinis, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy, Nubia, Harley Quinn, Aquaman and, er, the Penguin. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it seems to be a hit with fans (see our character design tips for ideas for your own work).
