Review- DC Bombshells, Vol. 2: Allies

Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s been nearly five months since I finished reading Volume 1 of DC Comics Bombshells! I absolutely loved the first volume so I was pretty excited to finally get around to reading the second volume.

You know how sometimes you read something and it just really resonates with what is going on in the world around you? I definitely had this feeling while continuing the Bombshells’ saga. Between the current political climate and a particularly frustrating 48 hours where I had not one, not even two or three, but FOUR personal reminders of the importance of feminism, I was more than ready to see these female heroes kick some Nazi and misogynistic asses. 😛

Volume 2 takes us all over the globe to locations like Berlin, London, and Greece as WWII continues to rage on. Even on the home front in Gotham City, tensions rise and danger looms. One thing I really like about DC Bombshells is that it touches on both soldier and civilian life during the war. No one goes unaffected by the horror going on in the world.

As if the Axis Powers weren’t enough to contend with, a sinister supernatural influence continues to grow in power, bringing a horde of undead soldiers with it.

The art continues to stun in this volume and the characters are fantastic. (Batwoman is still, of course, my fave!) Strong female relationships aplenty in these pages, both platonic and romantic alike. Also, just strong, kick ass females in general. The characters are believable with their own motivations, insecurities, weaknesses and strengths.

The biggest bummer for me was that I was missing my girls, Harley and Ivy in this one. They were nowhere to be seen in volume 2. *Proceeds to pout in the corner.*

But, hey, at least we get more of Zatanna and Bunny Constantine!

All in all, I really enjoyed volume 2. I think I enjoyed volume 1 a little bit more, but I’m still looking forward to reading the third volume very much.

    1. Oh, nice! 😀 Yeah, I agree, the art style definitely is perfect for a tattoo! The hardest part would be choosing who to get. They all look so cool, and there’s so many good characters. It’d be neat to see someone with a sleeve or something of a bunch of the characters. 🙂 I’m too much of a wuss to get a tattoo myself but I love them.

      1. Ah, gotcha! 🙂 No worries about being new to reading comics. There’s so much great content out there that there’s literally something for everybody. I know it can be a intimidating for a lot of people on where to begin, but don’t sweat it. Just start with what seems interesting to you. If you like sci-fi/fantasy, Saga is an EXCELLENT series. People new to comics and veterans alike both always seem to love the series. 🙂 Your local library might be a really great resource too for getting started if you’re interested. More and more libraries are carrying big collections of graphic novels, so you might be able to find some good stuff there to test the waters and see how you like it. Haha, sorry about the winded response there. lol I love comics so I tend to ramble. 😛

      2. I love marvel and dc comics but my local library doesn’t really carry much things like that and if stores do it’s way too expensive! Haha no worries about the long response I like interacting with other bloggers!
