Whether you’re talking about the popular statues, the bestselling comic book or the upcoming line of action figures, to enter the world of DC Comics Bombshells is to take a journey to an alternate past full of powerful heroes and villains. Based largely on the designs of artist Ant Lucia, the Bombshells have been one of the most highly sought lines of DC Collectibles since their debut in 2013. Launching with an instantly classic take on Wonder Woman that drew immediate parallels to the “We Can Do It!” world of Rosie the Riveter, the line has expanded to include dozens of different characters, including many of DC’s male heroes, and has made its way to clothing, art prints, calendars and many other products.
But it all starts with the designs, and a brand new art book published by DC puts those designs into a vivid new light. THE ART OF DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS features pages of never before seen artwork and preliminary designs by Lucia that would eventually develop into the now recognizable statues that have shaped the line. Available on November 23rd, it’s a beautiful, coffee table-style hardcover that would make a perfect gift for any Bombshells fan.
As a DCComics.com exclusive, we’re excited to debut some pages from the book featuring Lucia’s pencil designs for two of the most iconic Bombshells: Supergirl and Black Canary. Scroll below to check them out!
