DC Expands its Bombshells Line with Statues, Busts and Annual
Its been three years since it was introduced and been a relative success for DC Entertainment, but the company has announced plans to expand upon their popular DC Comics Bombshells line. The concept has appeared in comics, statues, toys, and games, and features the likes of Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy, Batwoman, Stargirl, and Harley Quinn in an alternate World War II setting. The expansion includes new statues, an annual and a coffee-table book.
The line debuted in 2013 and was inspired by the retro artwork of Ant Lucia which mixed the pin-up style of the war period with rockabilly influences.
In January 2017 Katana enters the mythos with a new statue designed by Lucia and sculpted by Jack Matthews. In October 2016 a line of busts designed by Emanuela Lupacchino and sculpted by Matthews will debut. October also sees the release of The Art of DC Comics Bombshells, a hardcover collection of design work by Lucia, Lupacchino and other artists including Des Taylor and Terry & Rachel Dodson. August 2016 sees the release of the comic series first annual. Writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Elsa Charretier reveal the hidden history of “The Bloody Batgirl,” and the cover by Terry and Rachel Dodson is below.
