DC Comics Bombshells line has, despite its name, turned out to be a saucy, retro Dieselpunk adventure rather than just pictures of half-naked girls. started as a line of statues it spun off into a well received comic by Marguerite Bennett, Marguerite Sauvage and others, and finally: trading cards. But the cards will inclue MALE bombshells as well.
Cryptozoic ‘s line of cards hits next week; more info here and a gallery below.
The 63-card Base Set and four Chase Sets feature art from the covers of the DC Bombshells comic book series—including drawings by Ant Lucia—and from DC Bombshells variant covers of other comic books, as well as the illustrations used to create Cryptozoic’s DC Bombshells and Lil Bombshells figures. Each hobby box contains one rare “Golden Goddess” variant of a DC Lil Bombshells 2.75-inch vinyl figure: Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, or Supergirl.
“There’s something refreshing and irresistible about the retro style of DC Bombshells,” said George Nadeau, Manager of Product Development at Cryptozoic Entertainment. “These new trading cards allow fans to collect the beautiful art from the comic books and the amazing drawings our artists created for our DC Bombshells collectibles. If that weren’t enough, they can also get ‘Golden Goddess’ DC Lil Bombshells figures, which are sure to turn some heads with their eye-catching gold-and-white design.”
The first Chase Set is “Characters,” focusing on individual DC Bombshells characters. The other three Chase Sets feature images created for Cryptozoic’s collectibles lines: “Sketches,” “Lil Bombshells,” and “Bombshells – Men,” which depict male DC characters drawn in the Bombshells style. In addition to the “Golden Goddess” DC Lil Bombshells figure placed in each hobby box, there will be several randomly inserted cards in packs: Sketch Cards, Variants, Printing Plates, and “CZ STR PWR,” which are rare, high-quality, thicker cards printed using Cast and Cure technology.
