What does this mean for the current DC Bombshells series? Well, it will be coming to a close next month with chapters 98-100 set to release on June 16th. These issues will be collected for print issue #33 on August 16th and will seek to resolve the ongoing narrative threads in the current series.
In a nice nod to the series’ beginnings, the final cover for the current Bombshells series compositionally echoes the first. Artist Ant Lucia presents Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and Batwoman leading the charge into the future and into our hearts.
