DC Bombshells #1

DC Bombshells #1 - Marguerite Sauvage, Marguerite Bennett

Love this! I finally gave in and paid for the first single issue, and I'm so very glad I did. I can't wait until this comes out in trade!

 

DC Bombshells gives massive love to the huge role that women played during World War II. Working in factories, running companies, playing baseball. All the things that, until this point, were jobs for men. It made my heart happy to see Batwoman, circa World War II, running around in her baseball uniform. Kate Kane is as kick-ass as ever, and she looks gorgeous while doing it too. What's stunning to me though, is that I didn't feel like this was fan service to men. Instead, these illustrations are just plain gorgeous overall. Sure, Kate and Maggie are gorgeous. But they are also clothed. Thank you!

 

Shout out to the fact that this first issue proudly features Kate and Maggie's lesbian relationship. I was given a clearly loving relationship, on the brink of change. What to do when one half of the couple wants more than the other can give?

 

I guess I'll have to wait for issue #2 to find out.
