Hello and welcome to the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!
While Pride never really ends, we’ll be concluding our Pride Month by taking a look at something a little different, by taking a look at the beloved alternate universe of DC Comics: Bombshells! We’ll be looking at the digital issues #1-12, written by Marguerite Bennett, with art by Marguerite Sauvage, Laura Braga, Stephen Mooney, Ted Naifeh, Garry Brown, Bilquis Evely, and Mirka Andolfo.
I had a different sort of week, so I’m a little late getting my thoughts down. This feels a bit uneven to me. The aesthetic is wonderful and beautiful; it very much feels like they had the look first and then wrote some vignettes to go with it. I enjoyed this take on Wonder Woman and Batwoman. Batwoman as an Indiana Jones type adventurer in the 30’s is a fun idea. I’m not sure about the Supergirl/Stargirl story because it feels really similar to Red Son.
