DC Comics has announced that coming this August, their popular collectible line, DC Comics Bombshells, will be making the jump from just merchandise to the comics.
Starting in July, DC Comics Bombshells will join the digital first line-up releasing chapters that will later be collected on August 12 for the first print issue. The series will be written by Marguerite Bennett and art by Marguerite Sauvage. The first issue 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.
As part of the celebration, the variant theme for August will be DC Comics Bombshell variants.
In addition to the comic side, Warner Bros. Consumer Products will be rolling out licensees featuring apparel and accessories from Bioworld, collectible buttons from Diamond Comics, stylized posters from Quantum Mechanix, stickers from At-a-Boy and PVC figures from Cryptozoic. DC Universe Online will also get in on the action by adding playable Bombshells Legends characters, as well as a unique new episode for players to jump into action alongside them.
