This Week’s Must Read: DC Comics’ Bombshells #1
I’ll admit, I’ve already the first two parts of DC Comics’ Bombshells #1 since the series has been releasing with short digital chapters each week. (Here’s my insta-review of Part 1.) And guess what? It’s great! The first full issue releases in print this week and will contain all three digital chapters that have released thus far. Written by Marguerite Bennett and art by Marguerite Sauvage, Bombshells follows the superheroines who rise to the challenge while the men enlist during WWII. It’s 40s throwback style is great fun and adds an interesting spin on these familiar characters.
Pull List: Constantine The Hellblazer #3, Descender #6, Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #14, Howard The Duck #5, Injustice: Gods Among Us – Year Four #15 (Digital), Swords Of Sorrow #4, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #8
This Week’s Must Read: Doctor Who: The Four Doctors #1
It’s always a special event when multiple Doctors team up in a Doctor Who story. But this mini-series promises to be particularly notable because of its writer – Paul Cornell – who has written some of the greatest Doctor Who stories of all time as a script-writer for the television series, a novelist and as a comic book writer.
Pull List: Batman #43, Gotham Academy #9, Starfire #3, Descender #6, Shutter #14, Velvet #11, A-Force #3, Secret Wars #5, Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #2, Years of Future Past #4
This Week’s Must Read: DC Comics Bombshells #1
One of best things to come out of DC’s Convergence event is that any and every alternate reality is up for grabs creatively. While this series could have happened with Convergence or not, it still is indicative of the opportunities the event has laid before the comic-loving audience. Marguerite Bennett will take the concept of DC Comics’ Bombsell statues and variant covers and given the characters a little slice of action. Bennett (co-writer on Angela: Asgard’s Assassin) is at the forefront of bringing strong female characters to life, so I’m excited to read what she does with this concept.
