It's hard to believe that in just a few years DC's '40s pinup takes on its female characters, the Bombshells, have evolved from a small line of statuettes to a full on merchandising empire — they even got an excellent comic book! Ahead of this weekend's New York Toy Fair, we have an exclusive look at what's to come for the Bombshells.

DC's Young Animals imprint is giving us some of the weirdest, most enjoyable books around lately — Doom Patrol, Cave Carson, Shade the Changing Girl, the list goes on. The latest book heading to Gerard Way's imprint is equally weird, but it's a pull back far into the wonderful mind of the legendary Jack Kirby. Forager the Bug returns!
DC Comics has lifted the lid on a new four-part crossover between Teen Titans, Deathstroke and Titans that will see Deathstroke once again strike out against the Teen Titans — this time in an attempt to get at the returned Wally West, who Deathstroke believes can bring his dead son Grant (the original Ravager) back to life. It's going to be called The Lazarus Contract. Get it?
Batman is no stranger to love. He hugs people and things sometimes. (Usually after something bad happens though.) So Valentine's Day stuff with the Dark Knight's likeness on it aren't necessarily the worst merchandising idea. But these old cards featuring Batman, Robin and their enemies are, honestly, a little freaky.
Bruce Wayne has had to do a lot of questionable things in his time as the Dark Knight — that conflict and struggle is what makes Batman such a compelling character. But I have never felt more betrayed by a comic book as I was today, to discover that Bruce Wayne eats hamburgers with a knife and fork.
In January 1967, DC Comics put out Detective Comics #359, which introduced a new Batgirl to the Dark Knight mythos. Barbara Gordon wasn't the first Batgirl in the publisher's history, but she's the one that's best known to most people. She's gone on to have a long, dramatic career as a superhero over the last 50 years, as both Batgirl and meta-hacker Oracle. Time to share your top Babs sequences, folks.
