Bennett’s Bombshells Swing Solo In New Series
Oct 22, 2017
Sequels are spurred by success, in which case writer Marguerite Bennett is a very happy person who has no cause for alarm.
Her breakout Bombshells series from DC Comics is a resounding hit with comic readers, and the book made such a splash that the runner-up Bombshells United is now the new kid on the block at your local comic shop. It’s an opportunity to celebrate for the writer, and her enthusiasm for the book is contagious. So contagious that we weren’t going to walk away from it after we spoke with Marguerite at San Diego Comic Con. We wanted to talk again to get in on the ground floor for Chapter 1 of Bombshells: United #1 (JUL170408).
“We wanted to give readers who maybe hadn’t gotten in with the very first Bombshells series an opportunity to explore the world, and make this a whole new jumping-on point,” Bennett remarked during our follow-up interview at New York Comic Con. “A story that’s not redundant at all to the original series.”
The book allows fresh adventures from the same universe, Bennett explains. Which means those of you who may not be up-to-speed on your World War II history are going to get schooled and entertained all at the same time.
“With the new series we’re really going to focus arc by arc,” she continued. “Stay within these singular heroines in a singular adventure.”
As the “Bombshells” themselves range from Batwoman to Supergirl to Wonder Woman, there is no shortage of leading ladies to take point on future stories.
