    This was a series I desperately wanted to love, and overall I enjoyed it, but there were times when the writing and the art just weren't up to the task. I was on board for a reimagining of the DCU, where the men who would be heroes were off at war, and that left the women at home to pi...

    Unfortunately I think is the point where I'm going to have to drop this series. I really love the idea of it and it started fairly strong, but with each volume I like it less and become more impatient and confused. It's a fun girl power series, but it never focuses on the characters I'...

    This was definitely the weakest volume for me. Maybe it was because it's been a while since I read the last, but it's probably also because not a lot of my favorite characters were in this one, with the exception of Supergirl. While I enjoyed the mother/daughter theme, there was a lot ...

    Maybe 3.5, I'm having a hard time rating this one since its covering such a large scale of events, although most of it is about the siege of Leningrad where General Faora (instead of Zod) shows up to confront Supergirl, and where Raven meets her father, Trigon. ...

    I like the concept, but it might be getting a bit tired. Final issue is clearly a march to finish the series as it includes multiple artists including a cartoony style that doesn't fit the issues beforehand...or the other artists in the same issue. ...

    As the first major arc/series of DC BOMBSHELLS comes to an end, I feel so very thankful that DC decided to print this series in the first place. I also feel bitter as hell that the second series, DC BOMBSHELLS UNITED, was cancelled, therein ending the world altogether. So going into th...

    So this is kind of standard super hero book stuff to say off gate, but I hate most of the character designs and costume choices. That said, I enjoyed my time reading this. I haven't read the first 5 volumes of bombshells because doing things in order is for people of loose moral fiber...

    Eehh, I like that this series has tried to widen its scope (geographically), but as a result, it feels disjointed and unwieldy. I have the first volume of Bombshells: United checked out, so I'll give it a shot, but if it doesn't hold up I'm going to have to let go of this series. :...

    This is apparently the last volume of the series (though it does pick up in a sequel series) and it's the first one that comes close to a three star rating. The art is still fantastic and I still love the Bombshells, but there's just so much happening in this volume. Though it does do ...

    This is really hard to review, I will probably have to read each volume over again in a shorter amount of time to really understand how I feel. I really want to give this ending 2-3 stars, but I really like the characters, the art (except there were some wonky faces in the beginning of...

    Well, I guess this ends Bombshells. It didn't seem to be any wildly climactic ending. But I guess most things were tied up. The great part of this series was seeing what they did with each of the characters. So, yay. I definitely loved this whole thing in general. ...

    Apr 08, 2018
    What I am finding hard about following this series in trades is that so much time elapses between release of volumes, that I don't always remember exactly what is going on. Since the cast of this series is so big and sprawling, this is a bit of a problem. That said, Zatanna/Constantine...

    World War II comes to an (early) conclusion in this final volume of Bombshells as Killer Frost, Hugo Strange, and a surprise appearance by another villain all play their last cards in the war to end all wars. But first, we get a missing issue from earlier in the run as the Suicide S...

    The Bombshells series draws to a conclusion with a final battle against Hugo Strange and Killer Frost, as well as the mastermind behind the villains the Bombshells have faced. Supergirl and Raven both must face their pasts if they want to win. This final volume was a nice ending to ...

    Another out-of-date Harley joke, must be on purpose. I love Raven's backstory in this though - possibly better than her actual backstory. I also liked the Suicide Squad replacing the Batgirls. ...

    I love the bombshells series. I really really do. But this issue, for a finale of sorts, lacked something. Maybe because I?m sad we haven?t seen two of the three main characters in any of the recent issues. Maybe because I?m not keen on all the characters they focused on in this ...

    I love this series, LOVE IT. It's so queer, full of amazing superheroines and anti-heroines. There are discussions about humanity, hope, and goodness and calls out of white supremacy, antisemitism, racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. The world is pretty queer friendly. Perfect? No, b...

    Such a stunning end to this run with beautiful art by Braga and Andolfo. Amazing characters in this and such an intricate plot. Cannot recommend this enough! ...

    This volume just had far too much going on and was incredibly disjointed. I feel I?d enjoy this series better if the trade paperbacks were collected by characters rather than release date as I feel that would have improved my reading comprehension of the many many MANY characters and...

    I feel like a broken record. The ideas in this are fabulous, the characters interesting, and the whole is somehow not the sum of its parts. It is partially a comics thing, but characters (including big villain) are just sort of dropped in without build up, and I honestly think there...

    This series in general has suffered from the typical comic book pacing issue where every book you need a new villain to defeat and there's no foreshadowing so it just seems like these people keep showing up like whack-a-moles even though they were presumably around for all the events o...

    The final issue/chapter in this volume really felt out of sync with the rest of the book and threw me. Normally I don't have a problem with the artwork being different, but that section just felt really clunky art-wise compared to everything else. (Yes, I understand different artists h...

    This series did get better with the last two volumes but it was not what I expected and I'm a little underwhelmed. Having the DC ladies taking care of the homefront while the men were off at war and dressing them up as iconic images seemed to be inspired. But this series quickly lost t...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) I didn?t realize it when I reviewed our previous ?DC Bombshells? Collection that ?War Stories? was the last in the first large series within this alternate historical universe starring the awesome ladies of DC. I also didn?...

    I keep reading the Bombshells series, hoping I'll like it more. It's not bad...it's just not great either. The storyline is constantly jumping and expanding to the point that it's hard to keep up, and characters are introduced and thrown in all over the place. It's fun for a little whi...
