DC Comics women given retro makeovers for Bombshell Variant covers

DC Comics

‘ iconic female characters have been rendered in classic 1940s and ’50s pin-up style as part of the publisher’s Bombshell Variant promotion.

Artist Ant Lucia’s retro takes on Wonder Woman, Catwoman and Poison Ivy have been revealed ahead of their release in June.

The special variant covers will feature on 20 of DC’s best-selling titles that month, including

Action Comics

#32,

Detective Comics

#32 and

Green Lantern

#32.

DC Collectibles’ Bombshell Statue line served as the inspiration for the Bombshell covers.

“I’m so proud of the work we’ve accomplished on the Bombshell line and very excited to see them become part of the cover series,” Lucia told USA Today. “It has been a privilege to work with the team at DC Collectibles and watch these develop.”

She added: “Having my art on the cover of DC’s comic books has been a dream of mine since I was very young so this is particularly special to me.”

Thanksgiving With the Bears

“It’s a fun atmosphere. I come here every year on Thanksgiving”

That’s what Sarah Cheney says of the Roscoe bar Poison Ivy Pub which has been open for Thanksgiving for the last fourteen years. But this time she says the atmosphere was a little different compared to other years.

“It’s a little more energized I think.”

This because the Bears played against Detroit on Thanksgiving for the first time since 1999.

“It’s kind of fun that it’s the Bears Lions today. I’ve seen a lot of people wearing their Bears jerseys even though it’s Thanksgiving. They still get dressed up for their team,” said Cheney

And, the owner of Poison Ivy, Steve Quies, says Bear fans were not the only ones at the bar.

“We got a lot of people that come in that have family or may not have family in the area.”

Quies says Thanksgiving Day is usually a busy day for him.

“Pretty decent crowd on Thanksgiving it’s kind of all day long just trickle in-out. People stop for a short period and go to their family outings or afterwards they come here. We have several groups that come in after their dinners at their homes. Its been their tradition every year.”

And, while this year was different the Bears game was all too familiar — another loss.

“Big bears fan been following them for years. Little rough this year being a Bear fan but like all Bear fans we’re hanging in there,” said Quies.
