Just saw the first 2 image releases for this line.

As a long time fan of Pin-Up/Good Girl/Cheesecake art I gotta say I LOVE this line.

Hopefully, it will prove as popular as the Ame-Comi line has and we will see a fairly steady series of entries for all the females of the DCU.

Can't wait until these actually start to see release....

I was surprised to see them revisit this. Bruckner pitched this to them back in the DC Direct days, even made a Golden Age Catwoman pin up statue... And DC didn't really know what to do with it so it kind of died on the vine. I hope they do a better job marketing them this time around.

I love that they are done like the Bomber nose art (and the nameplates are the sides of airplanes) but just like all their other statue lines-- I have to pick and choose--

And of course wait for the eventual bat themed characters.. (Like I did with the covergirl statue, amicomi and bust lines)

I'm curious to see what these look like.

Harley Quinn and Poision IVy next-- (why do these two almost always come out together at the same time- no matter what statue line- I really would like some delay )

I don't like how they have taken this line from what is started as , Sculpted Bomber nose art (thus the name) and the reason for the inclusion of the metal airplane frame on the statue, to the lets do everything in the style of 1940s..

I mean the Harley Joker statue looks decent (but really another Harley already), but 1) why would anyone paint that image on their bomber (since it was iconic after WWII was over) 2) I don't think I have ever seen a single man ever painted on the side of a WWII aircraft ever...


Its just a little disappointing, this was my favorite concept and they seem to have pretty much taken it off course, (starting with the Lois Lane.)

I saw a photo of one with Superman painted on it recently... but to your point, yeah, I agree...

Although now that I think of it I have seen a couple over the years, but normally its on individual planes-- and its the actual pilot himself surrounded by women, (or doing something sexual with them) with a witty name
