tl;dr Bombshells but this time with biker chicks >Based on the DC Collectibles line of the same name, GOTHAM CITY GARAGE is a new Digital First series that follows a diverse group of rebels with one cause: freedom for all.>Taking inspiration from the fan-favorite statues, the team of Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (GRAYSON) craft the world of GOTHAM CITY GARAGE, flipping the script on some of the DC Universe’s most famous characters including Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Lex Luthor and more. The exhilarating new series debuts August 16.>“Gotham City Garage is an anti-fascist anthem for the open road, starring reimagined takes on DC’s great female characters through an outlaw lens,” says Kelly. “We’re bringing Big Barda, Steel, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Silver Banshee, Hawkgirl and the first Kryptonian this world has ever seen—the mysterious girl named Kara Gordon—into a world of bikes, outlaws and elaborate tattoos.”
>It’s been a decade since Governor Lex Luthor saved his people from devastation and turned Gotham City into the modern utopia known as The Garden. With the rest of the world in ruins, Luthor’s city continues to thrive—but not for everyone. Order has been kept only by the LEXES technology that networks the entire population under one mindset—and if a citizen steps out of line, the Bat and his minions are brutal in restoring the status quo. So when a young Kara Gordon comes under suspicion by her LEXES superiors, she heads straight into the dreaded wasteland—where she’ll discover the fierce oil-and-gear rebels of the Gotham City Garage.>“This is an exciting chance to explore the meaning of heroism in a world devoid of hope, to rebel-yell alongside our favorite DC superheroines at a time when we need it the most,” adds Lanzing.>GOTHAM CITY GARAGE debuts August 16, with a new chapter released biweekly through October 2017 and weekly thereafter, with print issues available in October. The series will have rotating artists, beginning with Brian Ching (SUPERGIRL) and followed by Lynne Yoshii of the DC Talent Development Workshop.>The GOTHAM CITY GARAGE #1 cover by Rafael Albuquerque will debut at a later date; the variant cover by Dan Panosian is available to check out here. Chapters can be downloaded via the DC Comics App, readdcentertainment.com, iBooks, comiXology, Google Play, Kindle Store and Nook Store.http://www.comicosity.com/dc-launches-new-anti-fascist-series-gotham-city-garage/one of the statues it's based on

>It's like the Bombshells situation, but with the Gotham City Garage statues.I'm really down for this. Those statues were great.
>>93942382Really, not Silver Banshee?
>Barda>Hawkgirl>Silver Banshee>Road RashI'm game.
>>93942345>anti-fascist>elaborate tattoosi hope it'll be good but some of the selling points make me think this could end up being a little ham fisted
How long must I wait for a beefcake book
>>93942345Considering I main Anna Bell Peaks, am ok with it, even if it is just for the art. Plus I oddly liked bombshells even with its sjw stuff in it. No idea why, considering my family is made out of jews from eastern europe that stayed in eastern europe after WWII.
This seemed really bizarre to me until I realized it was just shamelessly trying to recreate the success of Bombshells.
>>93942439Have you tried any other superhero book?
>>93942345>Kara GordonIt's Supergirl. Lame.
>>93942432let's not fall for marketing nonsense, it's yet another waifu universe
Post post apocalyptic Gotham, nice setting.
I just realized... she better be there, DC. She fucking better!
>>93942408Silver Banshee's cool.
It's been done.
>>93942429I blame an accident at the age of 7 for finding women that look at me from this position too hot to handle.
>>93942463It's not the same and you know it anon
>>93942592>chest tattoosAbsolutely disgusting.
>>93942659you, sir are a mormon for thinking that.
>>93942646Is she? I've never once seen a thread about her. Nor any presence of waifufags. I think once I saw some guy say he hated her New 52 redesign because muh blown out hair fetish, but that's all I remember.
>>93942659It's a character who accepted the Joker's seed, what do you expect, a habit?
>>93942345GODDAMN IT WONDER WOMAN YOU'RE A FUCKING AMAZON THAT CAN TAKE A HIT FROM DARKSEID.YOU DON'T NEED A GODDAMN MOTORCYCLE HELMET.I know she is a role model, but it is stupid as fuck.
It will last longer then any Marvel title
>>93942746maybe she doesn't have powers, like tattoos would be difficult (though not impossible) if she was normal strengthwe'll have to see m8
>>93942345>When your biggest properties are so dried up and underperforming you start making up spinoffs and treat them with more thought and creative ingenuity while your main stories turn to shit
>>93942345>>93942380>“This is an exciting chance to explore the meaning of heroism in a world devoid of hope, to rebel-yell alongside our favorite DC superheroines at a time when we need it the most,” adds Lanzing.DRUMPF BOUTTA GET BTFOSLAY QUEEN SLAY
>>93942627It's a nice touch that the wheel spokes is the cat-scratch W from her logo.
>>93942687Yeah she's pretty cool.I really liked her N52 iteration actually.
>>93942380>rotating artists, beginning with Brian Ching (SUPERGIRL)Dropped
>>93942834you're not wrong
>>93942345>>93942380>mfw it is another Yuri-Verse
>>93942742selina lookin extra thiqq
Does this mean Bombshells is finally ending?
>>93942953Nope, getting a relaunch this August
>>93942953Didn't bombshells end a while ago?
>>93942345>>93942380>a diverse group of rebels with one cause: freedom for all.>an anti-fascist anthem for the open road>rebel-yell alongside our favorite DC superheroines at a time when we need it the mostWhy can't this shit stay at Marvel? At least this isn't the main universe but the sudden proliferation of SJW elseworlds is a disturbing turn of events.
>>93942345>>93942380God DC how desperate can you get
>>93943148waifu fapbait is the opposite of SJW
>>93942345>biker wondywell, you may not get my money, but I'll be on 4chan reading
>>93943148Man, you're gonna freak when you realize these story beats are just a retread of a comic they've been publishing for about 3 years.
>>93942834>>93942851Lynne Yoshii is not bad tho
>>93943148Heck yeah Redditbro! FUCK women! We 'pedes love sucking FAT COCK!
Oh boy, Bombshells 2: Electric BoogalooThey better have Sejic on this Was he ever on Bombshells?
>>93942345>Gotham City Garage>Not about a leather clad, greaser NightwingFucking dropped. Why does every book aimed at women have an all female cast with very few hot dudes? Fucking hell.
>>93943217I knew Bombshells was bad but I never realized it was THAT bad.>>93943194>but muh dikTruly, the weak-willed are easily swayed.>>93943272>hating SJWs is RedditWhat did he meme by this?
>new world centered around GothamAt least they're being more honest about centering everything on Batman in some way
>>93942345WHERE'S MY YAOI VERSE DC? WHERE'S THE BL COMIC I NEED? WHERE ARE MY CUTE BOYS STATUE? CUTE BOYS MERCHANDISE?
>>93943387Honestly it sounds like they're just using the name because of the statue line, it's basically a Metropolis story with Lex in charge and the new Kryptonian emerging to causing the story to happen.
>>93943148SJW ruined the second world war as well. Leave fascism alone!
>>93943428Go ask them they'll probably do itThey're pathetic and desperate enough
>>93943428Well they announced those Ricken statues a while ago, but it seemed like normal Batuniforms rather than something you can build an AU out of. Have hope.
>>93942345Okay this is something I'll read. The Bombshells setting and premise just isn't interesting to me.
>>93943314Dude, how can you know about Bombshells at all without learning that?
>based off of statues>digital first>focus on female characters>fighting against fascismSo it's basically Bombshells 2.0 lol
>>93943242Ching is literally so bad nobody will want to read past the first issueAt least Bombshells waited a while to have absolute garbage artists
>>93943857did the anime girls fight against fascism?
>>93943886Nah, it was your typical "Brainiac wants to bottle up Earth* plot
>>93943917then it ain't ami-comi if they aren't fighting against fascism
>>93943969Yeah it isn't, I don't know how anon connected Ame-Comi with Bombshells/Gotham City Garage
>>93943937Seeing it all together kind of a lazy way of drawing breasts, not all of those materials would behave the same way. Not bad though, I'm just being picky. >>93943992presumably just from the "statue line turning into a comic line" thing
>>93942627Damn, that's actually pretty cool looking.
>>93942439I want a gay comic verse like BombshellsMost comics are already beefcake but none have Batman and Superman making kissy faces like Vixen/Hawkgirl or Lois/Supergirl in Bombshells
>>93942345>>93942380This sounds more like something Ollie and Canary would be inHell, now I want GA in this just to call it Queen's Angels
>>93944139>Queen's Angelsnow THAT I would buy
>>93942345I fucking called it.I saw >>93942380 a few weeks ago online and when the Bombshells sequel was announced I KNEW they'd try to make a comic based off of the motorcycle statues.Bombshells was too successful for them to not try and repeat it with something else.And if this is somewhat successful /co/, what other digital first elseworlds should DC try?Other than something gay.
>>93944202DC could actually give another shot at Ame-Comi, this time less super-hero-y and more as your typical slice-of-life anime
>>93944139>Queen's Angels>It's GA and the Siren's>In this dystopian EarthSo i just sign here and the money will transfer to you, right?
>>93942345Hey Comic Fans! It's tume to open up those wallets again and buy more statues and their comic tie ins! Girl power heavy, but in a male-fetishy way, so you guys will love it.... or hate it! Either way, you pathetic nerds will open your wallets..... again!
>>93944202>spoilerWell you are no fucking funBut if we keep going with this trend of borderline fetish porn elseworlds, I would like to see either a Cyberpunk or something in a hospital. Anything to see more officially published fetish outfits
>>93943148Are you so dense that you dont get it? They're punk rebel biker girls, no shit they'll act like that.
>>93942380>>93942345im vaguely interested, bombshells was hit or miss, and had way too many storys going on at once, so you'd miss a character you actually cared about for months at a time, but i am absolutely not a fan of this metropolis/gotham hybrid it seems to be, even down to the protag being super/bat-girl
>>93944350Okay okay, it can be gay.I'd suggest something military related to explain the lack of women in large roles for maximum gay but that's just my fetish talking
>>93942465What if she's Superbatgirl?
>>93942829New52 Silver Banshee doesn't exist anymore.Nothing New52 Supergirl does. Everything has been raped and neutered to death.
>>93944433If only Orlando weren't such a shit writer
>>93943825>So it's basically Bombshells 2.0 lolWell, Bombshells has a pretty solid fanbase, the comic sells consistently, and they're still making expensive statues that still sell really well. I don't fault them for doing another one and the motorcycle range has been pretty slick.
>>93942439Those Bombshells boys were mighty fine too.
>>93944077Too bad they killed Red Racer, Earth-36 had a decent shot of being that.
>>93944433Perkins (who did the last Supergirl arc) is writing Superwoman right now, and is bringing back lesbian Maxima, who is being hunted by straight-Maxima
>>93944449I'm still mad that Dick's variant was so disappointing.Like fuck, he's the go to guy for male sexualization and he's was not only the least sexy but the least creative too.
>>93944381Bombshell is already military themed, so no need for another one.Spy stories a la Grayson can be fun, with skin tight leather suits.Or something more out there like all the men work in a touring strip club Magic Mike style>>93944470>lesbian writing lesbianOh baby, can't wait
>>93942775Bombshells, for all its SJW nonsense, sold well enough to run 100 issues and get a sequel. DC Super Hero Girls was their top selling graphic novel of 2016. I can safely ignore Bombshells and not have my main DCU impacted by the idea that every hero is about lesbian girl power. I really wish that Marvel would follow this route. Keep their SJW and Girl Power comics quarantined in their own universe and just let the 616 be the 616 we always knew. No one would mode Black Panther and The Falcon being used to shill for BLM (a terrorist organization to most of the country) if that shit was contained in some OGN or digital comic. When they infected the 616 with anti-white male rhetoric, it became very easy for fans to get angry and drop their main comics entirely.
>>93944202I think this is the opposite, Garage will be for fanboys and Bombshells for crazy lesbians
>>93943969>Brainiac isn't a facist
>>93944443I suspect at least part of the problem is DC trying to retcon new52 Supergirl in her pre-Flashpoint persona(s), de facto removing everything that made new52 Supergirl interesting.Such a WASTE of character development!
>>93944554Nah, she's not acting anything like preFP Supergirl. Hell new 52 Kara after her character development was basically at that point. It's just weird forced synergy and Orlando not being able to characterize anyone who isn't an asshole.
>>93942648and it was glorious... all half a season of it.it might be worth giving gotham garage a chance, but if it's nothing more than SJW bullshit then i'll pass.
>>93944486I want a Mad Max verse with fetishy leather pants.
>>93944584I'm totally unconvinced of Kara trying so hard to be "an Earth girl".Or basically everything about her setting. And I HATE they made her father a psycho evil bastard.
>>93944804Just have to hope the next writer comes along and pulls a "kryptonite poisoning" to smooth over the stupider parts. I've checked out on the current run though.
>>93944486>>93944381I'd be down for something military if it was straight-up military. Like, not spy stories and not necessarily stuck in WWII. Gimme sum Green Arrow in 'Nam, that kinda stuff. That said, you'd have to find writers who can do war stories, and those are few and far in between nowadays.
>>93944614I'm also down for this. The whole Atomic Age thing in that one DC MOBA was neat but it really could've used more leather pants.
>>93943148It's hot women on motorcycles fighting fascists, will you just shut the fuck up already?
>>93944860while we're here>no SoCalHal Elseworldswhy even live
>>93944881A panel from a bit in Channel 52, that newsflash style thing from the New52 where they'd pimp upcoming issues all over the line. This was when Wondie had just turned into the God of War, so Ambush Bug and co were putting up these "renditions" of what that may mean.
what if The Main Man shows up?
>>93945014As someone who has read barely any stories involving the Main Man I wondered what the deal with him and dolphins was in the currently ongoing JLA.
>>93945014Then we'll finally get the glorious return of Bimbo.
>>93944896>Clark going sleeveless to rock the guns and hold a football.Fucking DChads, man.
>>93945070inb4 someone posts Chadseid
>>93944888>who cares if the comic is literally about STRONK INDEPENDENT DIVERSE WOMYN WHO DON'T NEED NO MAN fighting against FUCKING CIS WHITE MALES as long as the art is pretty/co/mblr is real
>>93944831Frankly, I'm more hoping for a Superbro\Superdad type of deal.Like, when she lost her powers it was actually her being split in two, one is still New52Kara and is having adventures IN SPACE while trying to get back to Earth to understand what happened.The other is RebirthKara, and RebirthCyborgSuperdad is actually a Brainiac copy(or something) made to test her.At some point they either fuse back together and we can generally ignore the events of Rebirth.
>>93945127It's less about >muh sjwand more about>muh dic
>>93944896>No post-apoc DC Elseworlds with Hokuto no Shiva punching people 'till they explode
>>93945127I don't get what you're complaining about, they're entitled to write what they want just like you're entitled to call it shitty.
>>93944896>this party is boring>none of these imbeciles could even wear a power ring>my feet hurt>i wish i was in space
>>93942345CARD GAMES ON MOTORCYCLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>93945229I'm more surprised he's wearing shorts
>>93944835Speaking of War focused elseworlds, always thought that Green Arrow is almost purpose built for a Spanish Civil War story as a member of the International Brigades.
>>93943194Why would you want a waifu who wouldn't love you back?
>>93945293And a t-shirt with the corps logo on it. And a Sinestro corps bracelet.
>>93945351That sounds like a pretty good idea. Would you make him british, like a sort of marxist commando Robin Hood, or keep him american?
>>93945351man, all these great ideas for GA. Start giving him Elseworld books!
Gotham City Garbage
>>93945440Still American, as they arrived slightly later than the rest, meaning there's room for some of the IB to be jaded in comparison to his optimism. The arc I have in mind is mainly to do with the internal struggle in the Left (somewhat similar to Homage to Catalonia) and Ollie discovering how internal politics can severely limit ideology. He'd probably be Communist as they were sent to Madrid (One plot thread in HtC is how Orwell wants to get to Madrid, but the non-communists are sent to other theatres). From that set up, in one firefight the guns provided jam (Many were from the time of Tsarism), hd grabs a nearby bow, turns the tide, and then has to deal with being propagandized as "The Green Arrow: Hero of Madrid!" or similar.
>>93945702Love it. Him being american means that yes, he'd definitely have less experience with how divided and fragmented left politics had grown in Europe. Maybe the bow thing could also spring out as a method of launching grenades or homemade explosives at franquist tanks, trick arrow style?
>>93942345>REBEL>OUTLAW>no mentioning of Red HoodDC really hate Red Hood for some reason.
>>93945910he's not a cute grrl
>>93944486>Bombshell is already military themed, so no need for another one.It's barely military themed.It just happens to be set in WWII.
>>93944896>Sinestro hiding the boner he has for So Cal Hal
>>93942345>>93942380>It's another lesbian superheroine universe: post-apocalyptic editionWell, at least I can ignore it as hard as possible.
>>93948887Don't lie, you're gonna be one of the first in the storytimes to shitpost.
>>93942345>>93942380Goddamn DC enough of this /u/ shit.
>>93942746She's clearly being stuffed into a concept that doesn't fit her character because "stick all female characters in this"
