DC Comics has announced that the DC Comics Bombshells is coming to an end. However, fans shouldn’t despair because writer Marguerite Bennett has also announced that DC Comics Bombshells will return with a brand new ongoing series later this summer.
DC Comics Bombshells will wrap up its current storyline in digital chapters 98-100, with the final installment released June 16. These final chapters will be collected in print in DC Comics Bombshells #33, releasing Aug. 16.
Bennett teases on Twitter that the new DC Comics Bombshells digital first series will feature “New heroines, new theaters of war, new perils, new crises, and new smooches!” Bennett also says details about the new series will be revealed in the coming weeks.

The final chapters of DC Comics Bombshells will resolve several lingering plot threads, including the fate of Power Girl and Lois Lane’s final showdown with Hugo Strange.
The current DC Comics Bombshells digital first series has been written by Bennett and featured art by Mirka Andolfo, Laura Braga, Marguerite Sauvage, Richard Ortiz, Carmen Carnero, Aneke, Sandy Jarrell and others.
DC Comics Bombshells began as a line of DC Comics superheroine statues evoking the retro 1940s style of artist Ant Lucia. The designs were a hit with fans and so the merchandise line expanded to include t-shirts, mugs, toys and other memorabilia. The DC Comics Bombshells got their own line of DC Comics variant covers and a comic book series set in an alternate history of the DC Comics universe was launched.
Bennett’s DC Comics Bombshells run launched in 2015 and has been incredibly well-received by fans. The DC digital-first series has been noted for starring an entirely female core cast, inclusivity of LGBTQ characters, spotlighting female friendship, and having a more female friendly tone than the average superhero comic book. DC Comics Bombshells also adeptly combines the traditional backstories of iconic characters with hints from Lucia’s original designs and the genre fiction of the 1940s era.
The next print issue of DC Comics Bombshells, issue #28, hits comic book stores on June 7, 2017.
