And I agree with the comments, we'll never see that chase at Hot Topic.

Joker is based off this artwork by Ant Lucia, which also was made into a statue of the pair. I really hope they make a nurse Harley to match!

So does Joker release the day Hot Cash starts? Valentines Day? Randomly? I really need to be complete on Bombshells.

I really don't understand the logic in releasing a male figure as the first in the "Bombshells" line. The term originated in WWII and referred to attractive women, particularly those in pinups and aircraft nose art. If anything he should have been released with a puckered up Harley.

They couldn't use Batman in this line, so they just shoehorned Joker in. Ugh.

I completely agree with you, but after the success of the first Bombshell variant covers DC did a second round with a few male characters as well. Some were a bit much while others were actually decent.

I thought all the art was done by Ant Lucia. I have all the posters from this line and love it. Excited to see the pops.

DC put out a set of variant Bombshells covers, and some of those were drawn by other artists like Emanuela Lupacchino, Terry Dodson, and Des Taylor. I'm not sure if Lucia was involved in the design of the characters not depicted before.

In addition, that particular Joker and Harley don't really make sense to me unless they are posed like the WWII V-J kiss photo it is paying homage to. They don't really work in Pop form. It's just Joker peppered with kisses and Harley dressed as a nurse.

The glams should be interesting, I think using the Rock Candy line for this would be a better fit though.

I know he created the initial bombshell line not sure about the new comics and later and male bombshells. This is by far my favorite thing from DC in a while. Glad they are running with it. It would be cool to see co-pop sculptures like an actual joker and harley that fit together in a pose.

I was looking at my Cryptozoic Harley and was just thinking the exact same thing. It will be interesting to see how the Bombshells translate into Pops. But I'm sure I'll still buy the entire line.

DC Bombshells began as a line of statues put out by DC that reimagined the DC Universe heroines in the style of pin-up girls that you would find painted on the noses of WWII fighter planes. They proved popular, so it branched out to other merchandise and even became a comic starring those versions of the characters.

I really loved the comics as I was reading them, so I'm pretty excited for the Pops. I'm just really nervous we won't be getting a Stargirl.

This is kinda what I though of too. I mean the whole idea of the Bombshells line is that it is about women. The men are secondary characters. I do like the Joker but I think it should've been saved for wave 2, after the main characters have had their pops.

I've always been curious where some of the Pop designs draw their influence from. If you look closely at the X-Men series one, you can see Jim Lee influence. Thrillkiller Batman, pays homage to Dan Brereton with one of his covers on the back of the box. One of the Harley Quinns (I think it is Harley with Mallet) has Amanda Conner's covers on the back. I didn't see much of a Bruce Timm influence on the Batman Animated ones. I'm a huge Terry Dodson fan, so hopefully some of the Bombshells designs will be modeled after his artwork.

I'm guessing it'll be either completely B&W or use the "noir" colorway from her B&N exclusive Cryptozotic statue.
