    Things are getting dark overseas for the Bombshells. Evil magic and PTSD can put a strain on characters. I am surprised at how deep this comic is getting with Steve's condition. We've seen stories about soldiers suffering from mental and physical damage, but to see it in a comic is"surreal. Leave it to DC to get deep. I must say I am loving Laura Braga's art. The sharp lines and shadows keep everything sorta edgy while still giving room for femininity in the female characters. Colorist J. Nanjan gives us some great depth and a real creep factor to the tenebrae. I do smell a Wonder Woman/Von Gunther smackdown on the way, and I am loving it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics Bombshells finally gets out of Gotham and back to the frontlines and it works out very well. While we're just getting this part of the story underway, we've had the origins of the tenebrae previously and are now seeing their scale and impact that will come. There's some great Steve and Diana time this time around as well that shows exactly what kind of person she is and how she approaches the various aspects involved in a war. Bringing the two storylines together is going to up the ante and provide for a lot more that the Bombshells are going to have to deal with. There's a lot of room to grow here and while I keep feeling like this series could be rushing through things I'm excited to see what's next. Bennett definitely captures these characters well, particularly Diana, and I absolutely loved seeing Braga back on the artwork as her Diana interpretation is everything that I want out of the Bombshells era version of her.
