Wonder Woman fights Nazi zombies? DC Bombshells: Volumes 1and 2 review
DC Bombshells Volume 2 released July 13 and things have gotten even more interesting. Nazi zombies, a gang of Batgirls, and a sea princess join forces with “night witches”. The series takes place during World War II where the women of the DC Universe are starring front and center all over the world. In Volume 1 most of our beloved heroines are on the side of the Allies, while those on the opposing Axis side are dabbling into some very ancient and nefarious magic. Luckily for the Allies they have Wonder Woman fighting for their side. They are also fortunate to have Steve Trevor, who crash lands on the beach of her beautiful island Themyscira and gets the strong and compassionate princess to join the fight. Diana convinces her good friend Mera to leave their noble homes behind to get justice for those who have innocently died as a result of such a senseless war and violence. Mera just wants to go for the adventure of it all.
On the other side of the world, Kate Kane aka Batwoman lives with her girlfriend Maggie Sawyer in Gotham City until Amanda Waller lands a plane on top of her apartment to personally invite Kane to join the group of Bombshells to fight and eventually win the war. Kane’s first assignment is to fly to Berlin to spy on a widowed Italian countess suspected of committing numerous thefts across Europe. In Berlin we also meet Zatanna, who performs in the Cabaret of the Joker’s Daughter the night she is forced to perform in a ritual that binds a contract between JD and an entity known as The King Beneath the Black to aid the Nazi Germans in the war. He provides the Joker’s Daughter with the power to create the Tenebrae, souls that house themselves in the bodies of dead, to fight for Nazi Germany. We are also introduced to Supergirl and Stargirl who are used as Russian Propaganda. We even get to meet Harley Quinn as she runs away from her boring life to find her Puddin again but instead finds herself in Poison Ivy’s vines.
Volume 2 shows us how Gotham is holding up in the absence of Batwoman. We run into Harper and her gang of Batgirls as they keep the streets safe while trying to save Harper’s brother from Pinkney Orphanage. Unfortunately for them things aren’t as they seem and they stumble upon much more than they bargained for. This seems to be the theme for all of our heroines in this volume mostly due to past family secrets and lies. Not to worry though since our girls are strong enough mind and body to withstand anything thrown their way. Almost anything at least. Volume 2 concludes after an intense battle in Britain which leads to a climax that results in a huge loss for the Allies side. I would love to suggest DC Bombshells to anyone who is a longtime fan of DC comics and characters and would like to see them in a new spin with a 1940’s pin-up twist. Feel free to leave comments below of who your favorite Bombshell is!
