Ant Lucia Gives The Women of DC Comics A Retro Makeover for ‘Bombshells’ Printsby Betty Felon April 18, 2014 5:00 PMTapping 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.What I find particularly appealing about the DC Bombshells is the attention to fashion and design. I love how Lucia translated a character’s signature style into a retro pin-up look. Wonder Woman’s classic digs are reinvented as a Rosie the Riveter homage, with high-waisted star button sailor shorts and a golden bandanna in place of her tiara. Batgirl gets an aviator-styled cowl, while Mera gets a sailor beach bunny makeover.Two of the most inspired redesigns in the collection are definitely the retro futuristic Hawkgirl with a winged jetpack and a rockabilly Black Canary (where Dinah Lance looks like an extra from Cry-Baby, complete with a Green Arrow tattoo). Although some of these redesigns stray from canon, I would love to see the DC Bombshells in action, even in a one-shot compilation of stories about each character, and I’m sure I’m not alone in that sentiment.9 comments:William Desmond Gafford · Top Commenter · Archives and Data Management Assistant at IntroAmerica
These are fantastic and I wish DC would make some of these as statues.

They do. I'm looking at the Wonder Woman and Supergirl ones in my store right now.

Really marvelous. He really captured Harley's insanity. I wish I had this kind of talent.
