"You see this with a lot of Batman's villains -- he wants them to recover, he wants them to find the positive path, because the worst thing in the world happened to Batman when he was eight years old. That's what sets him on the path to become Batman. He knows that a dark moment can send you spiraling in different directions, but he has to believe that you can pull yourself towards the light. Having a character on this team that as fun to write as Clayface, and as fun to play with because of his abilities, is great. I also love that he used to beat up Batman all of the time. There are some good lines coming up in the next few issues. Honestly, putting Clayface on the team is what glued the book together. It's that one extra thing that shows that while Batman is not the friendliest guy in the world, he is an optimist who wants the best things for the people around him -- even his villains. When he sees the chance for redemption, he pushes for it." - James Tynion IV

"She is Batman's equal -- she is not a secondary figure. They're cousins, so they are very similar, down to their hearts. I wanted that moment of equalization. ........... That was a turning point in writing that first issue and understanding their relationship together. It really presented itself on the page, and once I wrote it, I knew this was the way to handle it moving forward." - James Tynion IV

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 :) )
