The success of Bombshells would be a Cinderella story if Cinderella wore motorcycle boots. The initial idea was to build a comic book inspired by a line of popular collectible figurines. That germ of an idea has expanded into one of the brightest and funniest comics DC has to offer. The comic sold 60,000 copies in its debut print issue in August — a massive number for a digital-first comic.

Women writers and artists like Bennett often face backlash for "pushing an agenda," which is usually followed up by complaints that they're ruining comics by not having women overtly sexualized in their stories. A similar backlash is also applied to nonwhite writers and nontraditional heroes.
But 60,000 issues has a way of drowning out those voices.
"I feel like there was a lot of resistance to that at first, but now people are like, 'The books are here, you can see what they're like, they're great. Go forth and read,'" Bennett said. "I think people are starting to understand that this is not the destruction of Western civilization if you let girls in your goddamn clubhouse."

Diversity is making DC Comics great again

The lovely folks here introduced me to the DC comics: Bombshells series, so I thought I'd complete the circle and post a few of my favourite moments :) )

And now for the first time since the 1970's TV series, we see a live action Themyscira, courtesy of an Italian TV report

Looks promising )

I wasn't very familiar with Etta Candy going into this issue, but based on just this, I like her so far. Here's how Diana and Etta first met, plus Diana's Xena + Samurai Jack + Quantum Leap origin. (At least for this arc. I think.)


Also, look at that sickass cover! That'd make an excellent character poster.

6 pages from a nice 20 page issue.

Hardwick, Sugar and, uh ... Araminta. Dammit. Whatever other family names. )

For the record, Bekka has super-attractiveness powers. And is a member of the Sinestro corps.

Continued from Superman # 48. Some quick shots, since Truth is going to end in a month.

This issue, Superman gets his powers back, and some ones that I guess he didn't have in the New 52.

Also, Vandal Savage's evil plan gets especially comic booky.

NOTE: You may not be able to see some of these images unless you are using Google Chrome. Or something. Still not sure what went wrong last time I direct linked from blogspot.

I've mentioned this series in posts in the past, but it still seems relevant to the group, and to those looking for some actual female focussed superhero items for younger family members, or even for yourselves (I'm in no position to judge another person's toy collection heaven knows). The dolls and action figures have now been shown in packaging.

Well, I have a some nieces and a goddaughter or two who might enjoy these )
