DC Entertainment is excited to bring to you a brand new Digital-First comic book series, DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS! Inspired by DC Entertainment's fan-favorite Bombshell designs—DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS will join the Digital-First ongoing series lineup with a new issue every Saturday.

Digital chapters are available for download starting with issue #1, tomorrow, July 25th, with the first print collection available on shelves August 12. Written by Marguerite Bennett with art by lead artist Marguerite Sauvage (to then be followed by guest artists in later chapters) DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS introduces an all-female line up of heroes written as strong retro-bombshell versions of themselves!

"When I was contacted to work on this book, I was attracted by the retro style of the statues, not to mention the most iconic female characters of DC are represented,” explains artist Marguerite Sauvage. "And then when I read Marguerite's script, I was really excited and totally convinced by the story…”

This series features 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.

"DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS is one of the wildest things I've ever had the pleasure to create—a story of the DC heroines, all the DC heroines, in a crisis that defines themselves as well as their generation,” explains writer Marguerite Bennett. "I cannot possibly tell you how excited and grateful I am to be involved in a story this massive and inventive. The series will explore war stories, romances, mysteries, heists, action adventure, and horror in a way that only these characters could do—I cannot wait for this book to drop. Pun very much intended."

As our launch to this new series fast approaches, new chapters will be released on Saturday and will be available for download via the DC Comics app, Readdcentertainment.com, ComiXology.com, Google Play, Kindle Store, Nook Store, iBooks and iVerse ComicsPLUS. The first print issue, which collects three digital chapters, will hit shelves on August 12th.
