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.

Featured comic guest Darwyn Cooke created this amazing t-shirt for the upcoming Boston Comic Con. I can’t wait to grab one of these at the end of the month!
EDIT: According to @BostonComicCon, DC Comics refused licensing for the production of these shirts. What a shame - I would’ve loved a shirt and/or a poster of this artwork, especially since it reps my hometown, my love for Darwyn Cooke, and my life-long allegiance to DC Comics.
