Review: Bombshells United #7

With the first several issues being Wonder Woman-centric (indeed, most of last summer has been), Bombshells switches gears, focusing instead on the mysterious Batgirl – or so I thought. She has red hair, why wouldn’t she be Batgirl. No, she’s Batwoman; or at least the 1940s analogue.

It’s a tail of intrigue and espionage, she has sneaked into war-torn Spain, where she is reunited with former lover Renee Montoya in the hopes of freeing the nation from Generalissimo Black Adam.

I like Richard Ortiz’s artwork. I think it works very well for the subject matter. It’s kind of a P. Craig Russell meets Hergé. Here’s hoping we see more of it.

My only grievance is the general openness Kate Kane and Renee Montoya display in the alternative lifestyles. I find it hard to believe the 1940s (even in an alternate timeline) would be so tolerant. Bu8t that’s the beauty of alternate realities – anything goes. I like the notion of DC’s heroes and villains switching partners from time to time. I’d like to see more of it in the mainstream DCU.

Rating: 8/10
