Ant Lucia Gives the Women of DC Comics a Retro Makeover for ‘Bombshells’ Prints

By Betty Felon

Tapping into the popular DC Bombshells statues line from DC Collectibles, QMx has released a set of prints of Ant Lucia’s conceptual artwork featuring DC’s favorite heroines and villainesses in the style of mid-century pin-ups. Lucia channels Alberto Vargas’ trademark pin-up style while capturing the strength and beauty of the likes of Wonder Woman, Catwoman, et al; and the result is a fun, sexy, and chic makeover of DC’s finest. This artwork will be also used for DC Bombshell-themed variant covers for DC’s current series in June 2014.

Ever since the release of the DC Bombshells Supergirl statue last year, Lucia’s redesigns have been a hit with collectors and cosplayers alike, with the line of statues quickly expanding and with fans emulating these stylishly retro makeovers of Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and more.

Feline Fatale Collection, by I Love Crafty

I Love Crafty’s capsule collection of feline-themed acrylic jewelry reminds me of Catwoman and Luella Bartley’s Spring 2008 collection, with chic cat masks, playful kitten silhouettes, and surly feline faces. As someone who can never have too many cats in her wardrobe, here are some of my favorite pieces from this collection.

I don’t know about you miss kitty, but I feel so much yummier.

Lauren's Catwoman dress was one of my favorite outfits at New York Comic Con last year. Lauren created this purrfect look by modifying a long-sleeved skater dress and a domino mask with white fabric paint to emulate the signature stitches from Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman digs in Batman Returns.

Some DC girls redesigns! An extension to the street wear Super heroines thing I did awhile ago. Unfortunately missed the Project Rooftop redesign contest, but these have been floating around in my head for awhile. I also get a lot of questions concerning the brushes I use for these character portraits. I use 2 brushed in my set to do them, and here they are!

I love the worlds of comics and video games, and I’ll probably be doing more like these :)
The Harley redesign is largely influenced by Kris Anka’s work!

Real Talk: Mingjue Helen Chen’s redesigns for Batgirl & Harley are making me reconsider my pantsless wardrobe.

Forever 21 Channels Gotham’s Favorite Socialites In ‘Bats & Cats’ Collection
By Bethany Fong
Just in time for Fall/Winter vigilantism, Forever 21 has launched the Bats and Cats Collection of apparel, accessories and cosmetics, featuring the iconic motifs of Batman and Catwoman. After the success of previous licensed collections showcasing the designs of Hello Kitty/Sanrio and Minnie Mouse, the Bats and Cats line is the first comic-centric collection that Forever 21 has released. Although Forever 21 has occasionally carried DC and Marvel apparel (primarily graphic tees), this collection features a wider variety of merchandise, including Bat-emblem leggings, Catwoman sweaters, and purses covered in gold bat-shaped studs, and more.
Check out some of our favorite pieces of the collection on ComicsAlliance!

Last Thursday, I came down with a bad cold and thought that the Bats & Cats Collection was just a fever dream. I woke up the following morning with a shipping confirmation in my inbox and a slight dent in my checking account.
I’ll post a review/unboxing of the items that I ordered once my shipment arrives~!
