DC Comics: Bombshells Vol. 6: War Stories Reviews

  • Alana

    Enjoyable as always. Can’t wait to start Bombshells United now :)

    This is really hard to review, I will probably have to read each volume over again in a shorter amount of time to really understand how I feel. I really want to give this ending 2-3 stars, but I really like the characters, the art (except there were some wonky faces in the beginning of this one, what's that about?), and most of the plot(s).

    Where was Black Canary? Was she in this series AT ALL? Because she's one of my favorites and that in of itself makes me want to drop the whole series 1 star.

    This was a series I desperately wanted to love, and overall I enjoyed it, but there were times when the writing and the art just weren't up to the task. I was on board for a reimagining of the DCU, where the men who would be heroes were off at war, and that left the women at home to pick up the slack in the realm of crime-fighting.

    Unfortunately, the final product felt a bit unfulfilled. None of the heroines really get enough time in the spotlight to be distinguished as anything but a 1940s versi

    This was a series I desperately wanted to love, and overall I enjoyed it, but there were times when the writing and the art just weren't up to the task. I was on board for a reimagining of the DCU, where the men who would be heroes were off at war, and that left the women at home to pick up the slack in the realm of crime-fighting.

    Unfortunately, the final product felt a bit unfulfilled. None of the heroines really get enough time in the spotlight to be distinguished as anything but a 1940s version of themselves, plus a deliberately dolled-up boudoir style. The exception might be the Bat Girls. In addition, the story is one about occult Nazis and taking the fight to the fascists—entertaining and exhilarating, but there's no time for significant character development. The arcs that actually happen, like Raven's emotional journey and Lois Lane dealing with her grief after fighting in Spain, get lost in the noise.

    It got a lot of stuff right, though. None of the titular Bombshells have to compromise on their heroism, and despite the preponderance of male characters, the only threat to their time in the spotlight is each other—Steve Trevor, John Constantine, and Lex Luthor stay in their secondary roles where they belong. Lois Lane as a freedom-fighter-turned-war-journalist works on so many levels. Above all, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy steal just about every page they're on, and I think this series contains their first on-page kiss? I'm not sure, and I'm not going to risk looking up "Harley and Ivy kissing" at work. In any case, good on you, DC.

    This last volume gets four stars, since it brings almost everything to a satisfying (if unmemorable) close. If you really like DC heroines, this is the book for you. Otherwise, pick it up from the library. Myself, I'll be giving the next series a pass.

    World War II comes to an (early) conclusion in this final volume of Bombshells as Killer Frost, Hugo Strange, and a surprise appearance by another villain all play their last cards in the war to end all wars.

    But first, we get a missing issue from earlier in the run as the Suicide Squad infiltrate a submarine to rescue a familiar face. This incarnation of the Squad are an eclectic bunch, and it's always nice to see them.

    World War II comes to an (early) conclusion in this final volume of Bombshells as Killer Frost, Hugo Strange, and a surprise appearance by another villain all play their last cards in the war to end all wars.

    But first, we get a missing issue from earlier in the run as the Suicide Squad infiltrate a submarine to rescue a familiar face. This incarnation of the Squad are an eclectic bunch, and it's always nice to see them.

    Then we get back to the main story. After the big conclusion a few volumes ago, we've slowly been building back towards another one. This one however is much more personal, with a lot more riding on the success of the good guys, especially for Raven and Supergirl. It's masterful storytelling with a lot of moving parts all coming together for a very satisfying (and actually quite hopeful) conclusion that even now manages to get some more Bombshell-verse characters in that we haven't seen before.

    The Bombshells art team continues to impress as well, with chapters from Mirka Andolfo, Laura Braga, and Sandy Jarrell, with some help from Carmen Carnero and Aneke (who takes the entirety of the Suicide Squad story).

    Bombshells comes to an end, but all is not lost; every ending is a beginning, and the Bombshells are just getting started.

    I need a movie on this series asap. Someone make this HAPPEN.

    This final volume was a nice ending to the series, but not an entirely satisfying one. Quite a few main characters were missing entirely from this volume, including Wonder Woman, Batwoman, and Mera. Luckily, there is a sequel series to continue their stories. I'm not surprised that the book couldn't fit in every character since this series has a huge cast. But it did continue the stories of the ones who made it in the book very nicely.

    The book started with more of Batgirl and the Suicide Squad as they staged a rescue. They were only in the book for an issue, but their group dynamic was fun and I'd love to see more of them.

    Supergirl got a big reveal in her former home planet and her parentage that she had to quickly come to terms with and face in this volume as her birth mother's identity is revealed. She also got some nice bonding with her clone siblings, Power Girl and Superman, and Lois Lane (hopefully her future love interest).

    Raven also had to face her past when she met her father again. And her new-found family with Zatanna and Constantine continued to be adorable.

    Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy also continued to be cute, even if Harley had some very bad jokes that Ivy had to endure.

    From start to finish, the

    series proved to be a fun ride with the ladies of the DC universe taking center stage. It took the simple concept of what the world would be like if the female superheroes came first and ran with it, re-imagining their dynamics in a World War II setting. And so many queer characters. I don't think there was a single issue that didn't feature a queer character, with most featuring multiple.

    I'm so glad there's a sequel to this because I loved every moment of this series and there's so many more stories that can be told with all the characters. And hopefully more DC heroines will join the series.

    What I am finding hard about following this series in trades is that so much time elapses between release of volumes, that I don't always remember exactly what is going on. Since the cast of this series is so big and sprawling, this is a bit of a problem. That said, Zatanna/Constantine's family is still great, and I am here for it if we're getting Lois Lane/Kara? I hope we're getting that.

    I guess I will find out in another six months!

  • Kb

    Either I keep forgetting who all the characters are or we're getting to characters I don't know, and their reveals aren't as dramatic to me as the narrative wants them to be.

  • Daniel Butcher

    I like the concept, but it might be getting a bit tired.

    Final issue is clearly a march to finish the series as it includes multiple artists including a cartoony style that doesn't fit the issues beforehand...or the other artists in the same issue.
