DC Comics Bombshells is DC Collectibles’ new line featuring the female superstars in poses inspired by classic pin-up art. Featuring Supergirl, Poison Ivy and more, these 50’s vintage art pieces are perfect to show off your comic book love in your home or office.

HerUniverse.com is the place to go for geek girl fashion. The site offers female fans a chance to wear their faves in OUR size, OUR fit and on OUR terms. While Marvel has failed to properly promote the awesomeness that is Black Widow, we do get a few items showcasing the superhero, and this is one of them.
Every girl needs a comfy and cute outfit for saving the galaxy, and this Princess Leia dress fits the bill. This hooded replica of Leia’s robe and bun ensemble comes in 5 different sizes and in 6 different galaxies.
These badass sisters are sugar and spice, but not very nice. If you want to remind the boys that you can kick ass AND take names, pick up one of these Guardians of the Galaxy inspired tees and put the fear of GIRL into them.
To be released August 30, 2015 by Pop Vinyl, this Agent Carter doll is a perfect addition to your collection. While you might say that Peggy Carter doesn’t have any super powers, I’d argue that dealing with the misogynistic SSR and not kicking all those dudes’ asses that ask her to grab them a cup of coffee IS A DEFINITE super power.
This shirt on the Hot Topic website is just waiting for me to snatch it up for my zombie preparedness kit. No one character’s grown in the Walking Dead universe more than Carol Peletier, and yeah, I definitely trust her with my life and my fashion.
Dinah Laurel Lance is making a come back in the DC Universe with her very own comic book, released June 17th. Set after her time as a vigilante and a solider, Dinah (Laurel on the tv show) is front woman for the band, Black Canary, but can’t seem to stay away from trouble. With stunning illustrations by Annie Wu, this new series in the DC canon looks to be an exciting addition for fans.
If you love Teen Titans GO! and shoes, these hand-painted Converse tennis shoes featuring characters Starfire, Raven and more NEED to be added to your collection. GTDShoes.com offers original shoe art for a number of different fandoms, and these are perfect for a TTG comic or cartoon fiend.
Want to impress Robbie Thompson (or the Collectress, who reads this comic religiously) or simply show the world your love of Silk? Head over to Redbubble and pick up this badass tote, featuring the newest Marvel super hero, Silk.
Super villian? Super hero? The lines are thin and easily crossed in Gotham City. Perfect for that geek shelf on your display case, this 9.5 inch tall Harley Quinn figurine is sure to pack a punch. Based on the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game, this statue from the official DC Entertainment website is sculpted by Jack Mathews and is as creepy as she is kick ass.
