Goodreads Synopsis:

In these stories from issues #1-6 of the hit series, learn the story behind this alternate reality where the Second World War is fought by superpowered women on the front lines and behind the scenes! It all begins with the stories of Batwoman, Wonder Woman and Supergirl.

Review:

In this graphic novel, the super hero women of DC Comics fight in World War II. They were given the name Bombshells, since they were the secret weapon.

Each of the characters were introduced individually. I recognized Wonder Woman’s origin story, when she met Steve Rogers. However, I was confused at the story of Supergirl and Stargirl. In this graphic novel, they were presented as Russian sisters who became the army’s secret weapons. I had no idea who they were until they were introduced by their super hero names. The different backgrounds for them really threw me off.

There was too much going on in this graphic novel. There were a few pages devoted to each super hero, who were all stationed in different places across Europe. It was hard to keep track of them all, especially the ones I wasn’t very familiar with. I wish they had come together in some way to see how they all worked together.

Have you read this book? What did you think of it?
