DC Bringing Death to the Bombshell Line

DC Collectibles has announced a retro interpretation of Death from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series for the DC Bombshells line.

Revealed during NY Toy Fair 2019, the physical representation of Death appears in a nurse's uniform. In her hands she holds her trademark umbrella and a syringe. She's wearing a silver ankh necklace and a black cloak. The Eye of Horus is also visible on her right cheek. This beautiful yet ominous statues was announced along with a Mary Marvel Shazam Bombshell for an as-of-yet-confirmed release date.

Created by Neil Gaiman and Mike Dringenberg, this anthromorphic personification of Death is a member of the Endless, a dysfunctional family of entities that represent the embodiment of natural forces of the universe. The character was well-received and proved popular. Although she started out at Vertigo, she has appeared repeatedly in the mainstream DC Comics Universe.

DC Bombshells began in 2011 as a line of figurines based on artist Ant Lucia's illustrations depicting the publisher's heroines in a retro 1940s style. The line eventually grew to include variant covers, other merchandise and an ongoing comic book series, which concluded in 2017. Considering the popularity of the series, the appearance of Death may hint at the beginning of a new chapter in this clever re-imagining of popular DC characters.
