The Bionic Man vs. The Bionic Woman #2 is more of the same if you read the first issue. And that is – AWESOME!!! When you picture team-ups in your head, THIS is the kind of book that you picture. A well-told story that makes sense and brings together two of your favorite comic books into one epic masterpiece!!!
I said it last month, and I’ll say it again – writer Keith Champagne should be writing the monthly series for BOTH Bionic Man and The Bionic Woman!!! Champagne does an incredible job at portraying everyone in the “Bionic” universe with dead-on accuracy. Not only that, but he makes the audience believe, in this super-powered day and age, that having bionic ears, eyes, legs, and arms IS a legitimate super power. He’s done the incredible and updated a television series successfully into a fantastic comic. That is truly rare.
It took me awhile to get used to artist Jose Luis, but now I can’t get enough of his work. He’s crazy good here, it’s almost out of control. He pulls off the talking head drama panels with fantastic execution and don’t get me started about the action pages. They are incredible! He’s got a fantastic grip on the literal mechanics of this universe, and nothing he draws looks the least bit out of place or unnatural. Great art, pure and simple.
You’ve still got time to jump in and enjoy! This is only the second issue, there’s a handy recap page inside the front cover, and if that doesn’t do it for you, ask your favorite comic retailer, I’m sure they can track down a copy of the first issue if they don’t have one on the stands. Bottom line – BUY THIS!!!
