I suppose I'm saying that I'm not sure where the line between "historical" and "historical interpretation" is, especially since I know that the comic's writer and artist are pretty good about doing their research to begin with.
I'm not sure with my answer but I think that usually, when doing a historical interpretation, it has to be clear that it's an interpretation. Like the batman dress here : http://costumecon32.com/programming-...al-masquerade/
From my understanding, you're better to have a clear interpretation than trying to please both the re-creation and the historical accuracy.
