I don’t normally make a habit out of reviewing or spotlighting every issue in a mini-series, but with this one I cannot seem to help it. Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3 continues to astound me and make me nostalgic for my childhood. Additionally, with March being Women’s History Month, it only seems fitting that we celebrate these iconic characters. Though, to be fair, I plan on celebrating this series each and every month regardless.

Picking up where it left off last time, this issue starts off with Jamie learning to fly Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet. This issue has far less action in it than the others so far, but that is not to say that it was boring. Rather, it enabled the reader to gather information and moved the plot along at a nice clip. Interestingly enough, this issue held several references to the original television programs and specifically called out the episodes by name. This reminded me of comics from that era that seemed to always refer to previous issues and forced me as a kid to find older issues I might have missed. Marketing at its finest. Speaking of, maybe that is the point here, too. It has made me pull out my old Wonder Woman DVDs.

As per the norm in this series, it feels quite period specific. Enough references are made to keep the reader grounded in the seventies, but with enough tech thrown in to give it a distinct futuristic feeling. There are some comical elements that stand out and actually made me truly laugh out loud, effectively drawing me in further. I hesitate to give too much away for fear of ruining the story, but suffice to say that a lot of ground is covered but not in such away that I felt disconnected. If ever you were a fan of either television series, this is the comic book series for you. Much work has gone into recreating the panache that these ladies had on the small screen and it would be a shame if you were to miss out on it.

The Original Girl Power! Catching a missile after its launch is the least of the trials facing Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) and Jaime Sommers (The Bionic Woman)! Now, their greatest television enemies have joined forces, and they’re building an army for their master plan! Wonder Woman and the Bionic Woman prepare for a trip to South America – passing through the Bermuda Triangle as they go – but the villains have other schemes.

All this, plus the return of Max, the Bionic Dog! Written by best-selling author ANDY MANGELS (Star Trek & Star Wars) and illustrated by JUDIT TONDORA (Grimm Fairy Tales), WONDER WOMAN ’77 MEETS THE BIONIC WOMAN has set the mainstream and internet media on fire… and the publicity keeps running!

    I was unable to get a copy yesterday. My local comic shop cut back it’s orders from 6 copies down to one for a special order. They reordered it so hopefully next week or so. I told them about all these positive reviews and they laughed saying that reviews don’t mean much if it doesn’t mean sales.

    They don’t sound like very nice people there. I wouldn’t go there unless I absolutely had to, because they don’t sound good enough to deserve your business, in my opinion. They are wrong about positive reviews though. Positive reviews aren’t just for sales, and it doesn’t hurt a book either way, so screw their ‘grubby money making talk’ and continue to get what you like and love. This is the team up that I’ve always been waiting for but didn’t realize it until it happened!

  • Crimsonrain

    Well…these guys have been in business for almost 40 years. We have had other stores that have opened in that time and all have closed…so they must know what they are talking about. I’ve been shopping there for 25+ years myself. I was just shocked that they cut the order down to one. They said that it wasn’t selling at all…so not all this is on the store..it’s also on the customers. If they don’t want it they aren’t going to buy it. Maybe I’m just in a market that it doesn’t sell.

  • dante williams

    Oh okay. I thought the way you wrote it they were laughing at you just because of what you thought. I still say though even if great reviews don’t always translate to sales they don’t hurt either. I guess they did what they had to do and they’ve been open a long time but that doesn’t necessarily mean what you thought didn’t have validity. If they’re nice people and you feel comfortable there then that’s what matters.

  • And I totally get the reviews don’t always equal sales. The comic shop I lived above for several years had trouble selling TMNT comics from time to time. Sometimes the local demographic varies severely from the national one. Hopefully, they see an upturn on these nostalgic styled books so you can continue to shop locally. Otherwise Things From Another World will hook you up. They’re the ones I link to in my reviews.
