    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) I didn?t realize it when I reviewed our previous ?DC Bombshells? Collection that ?War Stories? was the last in the first large series within this alternate historical universe starring the awesome ladies of DC. I also didn?...

    This was a series I desperately wanted to love, and overall I enjoyed it, but there were times when the writing and the art just weren't up to the task. I was on board for a reimagining of the DCU, where the men who would be heroes were off at war, and that left the women at home to pi...

    World War II comes to an (early) conclusion in this final volume of Bombshells as Killer Frost, Hugo Strange, and a surprise appearance by another villain all play their last cards in the war to end all wars. But first, we get a missing issue from earlier in the run as the Suicide S...

    What I am finding hard about following this series in trades is that so much time elapses between release of volumes, that I don't always remember exactly what is going on. Since the cast of this series is so big and sprawling, this is a bit of a problem. That said, Zatanna/Constantine...

    Enjoyable as always. Can?t wait to start Bombshells United now :) ...

    I need a movie on this series asap. Someone make this HAPPEN. ...

    I love this series, LOVE IT. It's so queer, full of amazing superheroines and anti-heroines. There are discussions about humanity, hope, and goodness and calls out of white supremacy, antisemitism, racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. The world is pretty queer friendly. Perfect? No, b...

    The Bombshells series draws to a conclusion with a final battle against Hugo Strange and Killer Frost, as well as the mastermind behind the villains the Bombshells have faced. Supergirl and Raven both must face their pasts if they want to win. This final volume was a nice ending to ...

    As the first major arc/series of DC BOMBSHELLS comes to an end, I feel so very thankful that DC decided to print this series in the first place. I also feel bitter as hell that the second series, DC BOMBSHELLS UNITED, was cancelled, therein ending the world altogether. So going into th...

    So this is kind of standard super hero book stuff to say off gate, but I hate most of the character designs and costume choices. That said, I enjoyed my time reading this. I haven't read the first 5 volumes of bombshells because doing things in order is for people of loose moral fiber...

    I love the bombshells series. I really really do. But this issue, for a finale of sorts, lacked something. Maybe because I?m sad we haven?t seen two of the three main characters in any of the recent issues. Maybe because I?m not keen on all the characters they focused on in this ...

    This is apparently the last volume of the series (though it does pick up in a sequel series) and it's the first one that comes close to a three star rating. The art is still fantastic and I still love the Bombshells, but there's just so much happening in this volume. Though it does do ...

    This is really hard to review, I will probably have to read each volume over again in a shorter amount of time to really understand how I feel. I really want to give this ending 2-3 stars, but I really like the characters, the art (except there were some wonky faces in the beginning of...

    I keep reading the Bombshells series, hoping I'll like it more. It's not bad...it's just not great either. The storyline is constantly jumping and expanding to the point that it's hard to keep up, and characters are introduced and thrown in all over the place. It's fun for a little whi...

    I like the concept, but it might be getting a bit tired. Final issue is clearly a march to finish the series as it includes multiple artists including a cartoony style that doesn't fit the issues beforehand...or the other artists in the same issue. ...

    Well, I guess this ends Bombshells. It didn't seem to be any wildly climactic ending. But I guess most things were tied up. The great part of this series was seeing what they did with each of the characters. So, yay. I definitely loved this whole thing in general. ...

    2.5 ...

    Such a stunning end to this run with beautiful art by Braga and Andolfo. Amazing characters in this and such an intricate plot. Cannot recommend this enough! ...

    Either I keep forgetting who all the characters are or we're getting to characters I don't know, and their reveals aren't as dramatic to me as the narrative wants them to be. ...

    Liked the series. Not sure what will come next but hope to see more. ...

    Just finally catching up on my single issues, I love this series! Still one of my favourite comic book series of all time. ...

    This has gotten a bit convoluted for me, I think. I still generally like most of the characters, but the story has gotten to be both a bit much and a bit dull. ...

    One of the more solid volumes in the series, and a suitable ending to the first set of volumes. ...

    This author had a lot to say about life in a very poetic way. Everyone seems to have a horrifying monster army in this arc. ...

    I just....I don't know anymore. Individually, I enjoy the stories, but the fact that there are now somewhere close to 2,378 characters to track, it's all too overwhelming. Everytime I had to stop reading, I would forget what happened, because I'd be looking at 35 characters simultaneou...

    I love this series, LOVE IT. It's so queer, full of amazing superheroines and anti-heroines. There are discussions about humanity, hope, and goodness and calls out of white supremacy, antisemitism, racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. The world is pretty queer friendly. Perfect? No, b...

    As the first major arc/series of DC BOMBSHELLS comes to an end, I feel so very thankful that DC decided to print this series in the first place. I also feel bitter as hell that the second series, DC BOMBSHELLS UNITED, was cancelled, therein ending the world altogether. So going into th...

    So this is kind of standard super hero book stuff to say off gate, but I hate most of the character designs and costume choices. That said, I enjoyed my time reading this. I haven't read the first 5 volumes of bombshells because doing things in order is for people of loose moral fiber...

    I love the bombshells series. I really really do. But this issue, for a finale of sorts, lacked something. Maybe because I?m sad we haven?t seen two of the three main characters in any of the recent issues. Maybe because I?m not keen on all the characters they focused on in this ...

    This is apparently the last volume of the series (though it does pick up in a sequel series) and it's the first one that comes close to a three star rating. The art is still fantastic and I still love the Bombshells, but there's just so much happening in this volume. Though it does do ...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) I didn?t realize it when I reviewed our previous ?DC Bombshells? Collection that ?War Stories? was the last in the first large series within this alternate historical universe starring the awesome ladies of DC. I also didn?...

    This was a series I desperately wanted to love, and overall I enjoyed it, but there were times when the writing and the art just weren't up to the task. I was on board for a reimagining of the DCU, where the men who would be heroes were off at war, and that left the women at home to pi...

    World War II comes to an (early) conclusion in this final volume of Bombshells as Killer Frost, Hugo Strange, and a surprise appearance by another villain all play their last cards in the war to end all wars. But first, we get a missing issue from earlier in the run as the Suicide S...

    What I am finding hard about following this series in trades is that so much time elapses between release of volumes, that I don't always remember exactly what is going on. Since the cast of this series is so big and sprawling, this is a bit of a problem. That said, Zatanna/Constantine...

    Enjoyable as always. Can?t wait to start Bombshells United now :) ...

    I need a movie on this series asap. Someone make this HAPPEN. ...

    I love this series, LOVE IT. It's so queer, full of amazing superheroines and anti-heroines. There are discussions about humanity, hope, and goodness and calls out of white supremacy, antisemitism, racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. The world is pretty queer friendly. Perfect? No, b...

    The Bombshells series draws to a conclusion with a final battle against Hugo Strange and Killer Frost, as well as the mastermind behind the villains the Bombshells have faced. Supergirl and Raven both must face their pasts if they want to win. This final volume was a nice ending to ...

    As the first major arc/series of DC BOMBSHELLS comes to an end, I feel so very thankful that DC decided to print this series in the first place. I also feel bitter as hell that the second series, DC BOMBSHELLS UNITED, was cancelled, therein ending the world altogether. So going into th...

    So this is kind of standard super hero book stuff to say off gate, but I hate most of the character designs and costume choices. That said, I enjoyed my time reading this. I haven't read the first 5 volumes of bombshells because doing things in order is for people of loose moral fiber...

    I love the bombshells series. I really really do. But this issue, for a finale of sorts, lacked something. Maybe because I?m sad we haven?t seen two of the three main characters in any of the recent issues. Maybe because I?m not keen on all the characters they focused on in this ...

    This is apparently the last volume of the series (though it does pick up in a sequel series) and it's the first one that comes close to a three star rating. The art is still fantastic and I still love the Bombshells, but there's just so much happening in this volume. Though it does do ...

    This is really hard to review, I will probably have to read each volume over again in a shorter amount of time to really understand how I feel. I really want to give this ending 2-3 stars, but I really like the characters, the art (except there were some wonky faces in the beginning of...

    I keep reading the Bombshells series, hoping I'll like it more. It's not bad...it's just not great either. The storyline is constantly jumping and expanding to the point that it's hard to keep up, and characters are introduced and thrown in all over the place. It's fun for a little whi...

    I like the concept, but it might be getting a bit tired. Final issue is clearly a march to finish the series as it includes multiple artists including a cartoony style that doesn't fit the issues beforehand...or the other artists in the same issue. ...

    Well, I guess this ends Bombshells. It didn't seem to be any wildly climactic ending. But I guess most things were tied up. The great part of this series was seeing what they did with each of the characters. So, yay. I definitely loved this whole thing in general. ...

    2.5 ...

    Such a stunning end to this run with beautiful art by Braga and Andolfo. Amazing characters in this and such an intricate plot. Cannot recommend this enough! ...

    World War II comes to an (early) conclusion in this final volume of Bombshells as Killer Frost, Hugo Strange, and a surprise appearance by another villain all play their last cards in the war to end all wars. But first, we get a missing issue from earlier in the run as the Suicide S...

    What I am finding hard about following this series in trades is that so much time elapses between release of volumes, that I don't always remember exactly what is going on. Since the cast of this series is so big and sprawling, this is a bit of a problem. That said, Zatanna/Constantine...

    Enjoyable as always. Can?t wait to start Bombshells United now :) ...

    I love this series, LOVE IT. It's so queer, full of amazing superheroines and anti-heroines. There are discussions about humanity, hope, and goodness and calls out of white supremacy, antisemitism, racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. The world is pretty queer friendly. Perfect? No, b...

    The Bombshells series draws to a conclusion with a final battle against Hugo Strange and Killer Frost, as well as the mastermind behind the villains the Bombshells have faced. Supergirl and Raven both must face their pasts if they want to win. This final volume was a nice ending to ...

    As the first major arc/series of DC BOMBSHELLS comes to an end, I feel so very thankful that DC decided to print this series in the first place. I also feel bitter as hell that the second series, DC BOMBSHELLS UNITED, was cancelled, therein ending the world altogether. So going into th...

    So this is kind of standard super hero book stuff to say off gate, but I hate most of the character designs and costume choices. That said, I enjoyed my time reading this. I haven't read the first 5 volumes of bombshells because doing things in order is for people of loose moral fiber...

    I love the bombshells series. I really really do. But this issue, for a finale of sorts, lacked something. Maybe because I?m sad we haven?t seen two of the three main characters in any of the recent issues. Maybe because I?m not keen on all the characters they focused on in this ...

    This is apparently the last volume of the series (though it does pick up in a sequel series) and it's the first one that comes close to a three star rating. The art is still fantastic and I still love the Bombshells, but there's just so much happening in this volume. Though it does do ...

    This is really hard to review, I will probably have to read each volume over again in a shorter amount of time to really understand how I feel. I really want to give this ending 2-3 stars, but I really like the characters, the art (except there were some wonky faces in the beginning of...

    I keep reading the Bombshells series, hoping I'll like it more. It's not bad...it's just not great either. The storyline is constantly jumping and expanding to the point that it's hard to keep up, and characters are introduced and thrown in all over the place. It's fun for a little whi...

    I like the concept, but it might be getting a bit tired. Final issue is clearly a march to finish the series as it includes multiple artists including a cartoony style that doesn't fit the issues beforehand...or the other artists in the same issue. ...

    Well, I guess this ends Bombshells. It didn't seem to be any wildly climactic ending. But I guess most things were tied up. The great part of this series was seeing what they did with each of the characters. So, yay. I definitely loved this whole thing in general. ...

    Such a stunning end to this run with beautiful art by Braga and Andolfo. Amazing characters in this and such an intricate plot. Cannot recommend this enough! ...

    Either I keep forgetting who all the characters are or we're getting to characters I don't know, and their reveals aren't as dramatic to me as the narrative wants them to be. ...

    Liked the series. Not sure what will come next but hope to see more. ...

    Just finally catching up on my single issues, I love this series! Still one of my favourite comic book series of all time. ...

    This has gotten a bit convoluted for me, I think. I still generally like most of the characters, but the story has gotten to be both a bit much and a bit dull. ...

    One of the more solid volumes in the series, and a suitable ending to the first set of volumes. ...

    This author had a lot to say about life in a very poetic way. Everyone seems to have a horrifying monster army in this arc. ...

    I just....I don't know anymore. Individually, I enjoy the stories, but the fact that there are now somewhere close to 2,378 characters to track, it's all too overwhelming. Everytime I had to stop reading, I would forget what happened, because I'd be looking at 35 characters simultaneou...
