The DC Comics Bombshells are based on the best-selling line of statues from DC Collectibles featuring designs from illustrator Ant Lucia. The DC Comics Bombshell line finds each female reimagined as a vintage pin-up, with a look that hearkens back to the nose art found on World War II-era bomber planes.
Fans of the Bombshells line will be able to buy art prints of their favorite DC Comics heroine from QMx, featuring retro-style incarnations of Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Batgirl, Supergirl and Catwoman, among others.
"When we saw Ant Lucia's artwork, we were completely blown away," said QMx CEO Andy Gore. "Not just the retro styling, but the skill and creativity of the DC Comics Bombshells art make these pin-ups something any comic book fan would love to hang on their wall."
Each DC Comics Bombshell will be rendered as a museum-quality 18"x24" art print and will be priced at $14.95. QMx expects to release the first DC Comics Bombshells art prints in Q2 2014 at QMx-authorized comic, collector and specialty retail outlets around the country. They'll also be available for purchase directly through the QMx website at www.qmxonline.com.

Pfeifer: That's the whole team for now, though these things are always in a state of flux. I'm starting with characters people know (and, hopefully, love), but we'll mix things up soon enough. Plus, the personalities of those heroes are different enough that just bouncing them off each other will keep things lively for several issues.
Q: There's no teen hero from the Superman family or the Flash family. Why this decision?
Pfeifer: There was no big decision behind it; it's just how things shook out when the lineup was planned. Plus, what we probably should be saying is "There's no teen hero from the Superman family or the Flash family - yet." Something is in the works, but I don't think it's along the lines of what anyone is expecting.

The play, much like Siegel's life, is a meshing of fantasy and reality, telling of his hero's origins and the tragedy - namely World War II - that helped form him as a protector of truth, justice and the American way, a hero the real world seemed to desperately need.
It's a large and sprawling story, fitting for one of pop culture's biggest heroes. The question is how to tell such a massive story with so many elements, characters, costumes, leaps in time and space and sets.

Goyer: I mean, I know this is going to sound cheap, but I don't really. There's just our approach to how we want to tell a story, and hopefully we can convince Warner Bros. or whatnot of that. We don't sit in a room with cigars and say, "Look at what these guys are doing!" It doesn't work that way. I don't know.
IGN: As a fan do you look at it and observe it, or take an interest?
Goyer: I'm a fan. I see all these movies. Some are great, some aren't great. I never thought I'd see the day when there'd be a Guardians of the Galaxy movie or an Ant-Man movie. I mean, that's nuts - in an amazing way. I just never in my wildest dreams imagined that that would be happening.
IGN: Yeah, for me, it's truly fascinating to watch how Marvel's become more and more outlandish, more and more galactic and out there.
Goyer: You have to admire what Marvel's done. It's really hard to create a brand, I mean, where people will follow your brand. Pixar's done it, and now Marvel has done it. It's really, really hard to do, because there's not a lot of brand loyalty anymore. They've created a cohesive universe, so I really admire what they've done.
IGN: Is there a pressure for you to do the same?
Goyer: I mean, yes and no. Look, we've been pretty lucky with the films we've done so far. I think right now it's just kind of, "More of the same, please."

This makes me happy.

Did you get caught out by our April Fools Day news pranks?
We've been doing these for a few years now, so it's no surprise that a lot of you came to the site on April 1st expecting us to post fake news reports. Still, it's good to see we fooled a few people.
In Australia we have a tradition that you can't fool people after midday on April 1st. Seems that's not the case in other parts of the world, so pulling down the fake news items halfway through the day meant a lot of you didn't see them in time. Maybe we'll need to adjust that next year. ;)

Other than that this was a fun wrap up to a fun series. While the He-Man/Superman scenes felt rushed they were still entertaining. The action was split between Justice League Dark and Skeletor facing off against the mind controlled heroes of Earth, which made for some fun moments. The real action happened with He-Man and Superman fighting Orko and while I would have liked to have seen more of it the moment where He-Man gives the sword over to Superman made me smile.
