DC’s gimmick this month is “DC Comics Bombshells” variant covers again, based on the line of collectible statues they sell. However, this time, there’s an actual digital-first monthly book (of the same name) that’s going along with it. There’s also actual male “bombshell” covers as well (notably a shirtless Aquaman), though not to the degree of pin-up-ness as the women. The ongoing comic features World War II-set adventures of Wonder Woman, Batwoman, and Supergirl. I gather that it’s OK for DC characters to be tied to World War II again, as long as they’re alternate, non-canonical versions? It’s a slight break from the youth emphasis of the “New 52” reboot that lead to everyone, including the 40s-originated Justice Society, being de-aged into their 20s.

“Sensation” this month features guest-villain Superwoman, Wonder Woman’s evil counterpart from the parallel world of Earth-3.

“Batman ’66” introduces its version of Poison Ivy. Meanwhile, DC’s highest-cover-numbered still-published comic, “Looney Tunes,” sees Wile E. Coyote with Tetris-like all-purpose building blocks?
