I am impressed with DC's attempts to broaden the scope of their comic landscape in this post-Convergence world. We heard of Prez, Bat-Mite, and Black Canary. We heard that good stories will trump continuity. And we have seen books geared for different audience types.
And here is the blurb: DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS will join the Digital First comic line-up with a
new ongoing series. Digital chapters will be available starting in July
with the first print collection available August 12.
Written by Marguerite Bennett and art by Marguerite Sauvage, DC COMICS
BOMBSHELLS #1 introduces retro-bombshell versions of Batwoman, Wonder
Woman and Supergirl in an alternate reality where super-powered female
heroes are on the front lines in WWII! The full line of Bombshells
characters will be introduced as the story unfolds in the months ahead.
We saw DC do something similar with the Ame Comi girls book. I was intrigued by that book and bought it. I think the Bombshell designs are superior to Ame Comi so I am definitely in. I especially like the Wonder Woman and Batwoman designs, so glad they are two of the stars. And while I don't like the Supergirl design, it doesn't hurt that she is one of the headliners.
Add to that a perfect creative team of Marguerite Bennett and Marguerite Sauvage and how could I say no.
I can only hope that Supergirl gets treated a little better here than she did in the Ame Comi books. I liked that book but poor Supergirl. She was treated pretty shabbily.
And between this and JLA 3001, I wonder if this is what Dan Didio meant when he said there were plans for Supergirl in the summer.
