LOS ANGELES — April 9, 2014 — Quantum Mechanix Inc. (QMx), a leading sci-fi and pop culture collectibles company, unveiled plans today with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, to produce a line of art prints featuring the ladies known collectively as the DC Comics Bombshells.
The DC Comics Bombshells are based on the best-selling line of statues from DC Collectibles featuring designs from illustrator Ant Lucia. The DC Comics Bombshell line finds each female reimagined as a vintage pin-up, with a look that hearkens back to the nose art found on World War II-era bomber planes.
Fans of the Bombshells line will be able to buy art prints of their favorite DC Comics heroine from QMx, featuring retro-style incarnations of Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Batgirl, Supergirl and Catwoman, among others.
“When we saw Ant Lucia’s artwork, we were completely blown away,” said QMx CEO Andy Gore. “Not just the retro styling, but the skill and creativity of the DC Comics Bombshells art make these pin-ups something any comic book fan would love to hang on their wall.”
Each DC Comics Bombshell will be rendered as a museum-quality 18”x24” art print and will be priced at $14.95. QMx expects to release the first DC Comics Bombshells art prints in Q2 2014 at QMx-authorized comic, collector and specialty retail outlets around the country. They’ll also be available for purchase directly through the QMx website at www.qmxonline.com.
