    Bombshells kicks off its next three issue digital arc in a good way here and you can see how the threads are going to start tying together as the various sides make their way to war. Marguerite Bennett is putting together a fantastic storyline that's working a good build while being able to play in a world that's got so much potential to it – and what looks to be a great line of artists excited to be a part of it as well. It's not a fast read or one that's empty on thought and ideas. There's some rich material to delve into here and the chance to shed new light and angles on these characters and situations through the period and shift in players from the men to the women is fantastic.

    Perhaps the best way for me to sum up this issue and this title is that it is wildly entertaining. I just love it. And these versions of the characters are so engaging. They are treated with respect. They are fancifully dressed but that is just a superficial rendering of more three dimensional characters. I hope this book is a success in all its formats. Because it is a ton of fun, written well and lushly drawn. Read Full Review

    While Bombshells started out looking like it was going to be a fun, self indulgent romp, Bennett has been slowly steering it into darker territory reminiscent of her work on Angela: Asguard's Assassin. Read Full Review

    A visually mixed book generates a mixed response, but this is worth checking out. The first two tales were great, while the third was a let down. Wonder Woman has been the least interesting character in this series so far. Perhaps she could be left for a while to introduce other heroes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 16, 2015

    While Wonder Woman's introduction didn't wow me with a new concept before, here I'm told to suck it by Marguerite Bennett's completely new take on how our Princess makes her way to man's world and the people by her side when she does it.  We have a new artist on this chapter, but don't worry because it looks great and really works well with the art that we've already had in the first three issues.  It's a great chapter to this series and I can't wait to see where the rest of the story goes.

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Nov 11, 2015

    The Bombshell women are headed into combat and it seems like only a matter of time before they get into fisticuffs with one another. In the meantime, however, they are still trying to figure out their roles within the armies to which they have pledged. Add the unpredictable element of Harley Quinn leaping into the fray with agendas of her own and you have an entertaining mix of nice throwback bubblegum adventure with a little slice of the darkness of global warfare lurking beneath the glitzy costumes. Bennett does a marvelous job of explaining Wonder Woman's costume and makes the first literal connection to the painted airplane bombshells so familiar from World War II. This is a great series, even though it occasionally feels all over the European map at the moment. Read Full Review
