QMx Announces Art Prints featuring the DC Comics Bombshells
April 9, 2014

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 off the bestselling 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 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 on 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.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
