Release Date: March 15, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

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.

Last month I reviewed the first issue of this mini-series and found it to be everything I wanted and more and the follow up is no different. Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #2 is phenomenal from start to finish. Action packed and full of sly references to that time period and the changes that have occurred since.

This revival of iconic characters from my youth has been extraordinarily hit or miss, but in the case of Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1, it is certainly a home run. I was always a huge fan of Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman, but only occasionally watched The Bionic Woman. Not sure if it was a schedule conflict or what; I remember liking the 1970s Lindsay Wagner show, but just not seeing it often. Now, our friends at Dynamite Entertainment have teamed up with DC Comics to bring us one of the best TV titan team-ups ever!

Comic Review: The Bionic Woman #10

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: July 3, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Sadly, The Bionic Woman #10 is the last issue of this highly underrated series. Although it was plagued by many things like lateness and low readership, quality storytelling surely wasn’t the problem.

Writer Paul Tobin ends this series the same way he started it – with some good action, page-turning suspense, and a thrilling story. It’s Jamie and the Fembots versus Russia in this issue, and by the looks of these things, Russia’s chances aren’t looking too great. Once again, Tobin has taken the regular, expected story and flipped it on its ear. There’s some really great hold your breath moments in this issue, as well as some great action and a definite ending to the Fembots storyline. The book also ends with a wink and a nod, just like comic books used to end, but it never goes over the top corny either.

Release Date: April 24, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Bionic Woman #9 is pretty much the comic that fans of The Bionic Woman television series have wanted since the program aired in the 1970s. Yeah, it’s that good.

Throughout this series, writer Paul Tobin has been firing on all cylinders. This issue, is no exception. He turns in a great story and an even better script. It’s crisp, fun, fast moving, and all around great. It’s more great action and espionage for Jamie in this jam-packed with action issue. What impresses me most, though is the dialogue. It’s natural, it’s non-stop and it’s just plain fantastic. This is a great pen-ultimate chapter to this story line, and one that will have you counting the days until issue #10 is released.

Release Date: April 17, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Bionic Man vs The Bionic Woman #4 is the big action issue that leads up to the big finale next issue. It’s full of action, and crisp, sharp dialogue and great art, to boot!

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. LET KEITH CHAMPAGNE WRITE THE BIONIC MAN MONTHLY SERIES!!!! He excells in everything that that book needs on a monthly basis. Humor, great, believable dialogue, the ability to put heroes in “real world” situations without going too over the top. Dynamite NEEDS him on that book!But, back to this issue. Steve is missing 3 of his limbs and he’s up against the main big bad from the series. Who can rescue him? I’m not telling! But, Champagne combines all the charm, action and plot line in this book that it’s a great modern day version of both franchises.

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.

WHY are you reading this review instead of reading The Bionic Man vs The Bionic Woman #1? Seriously. You might just be thinking “Oh, who cares about another crossover?” Really? Because THIS crossover makes SENSE! That’s why you should care!

I will say this right now: Keith Champagne should be made the regular writer of The Bionic Man monthly series as soon as bionically possible! Good Lord, this issue is incredible! This takes place before the current Bionic Woman series, and is a REALLY great take on both characters. There’s a lot going on, but not too much that you can’t follow or you get confused by too many characters. In fact, that’s one of the book’s strengths, Champagne doesn’t introduce a dozen new characters into the mix, he uses the main characters, their supporting casts, and a villain. Let’s be honest, that’s all you need. There’s some terrific stuff in this issue, including the classic Oscar having to talk Steve into going on the mission debriefing. And treadmill running. The book starts off really intensely, slows down in the middle to develop the story, then revs right back up again at the end to leave you hanging with a breathtaking cliffhanger. Nicely done!

Release Date: August 29, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Comics don’t come more action packed then The Bionic Woman #3. From start to finish, you don’t really get a chance to catch your breath. I’ll be honest, I’m a mark for Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers, but I can’t get over how GREAT this comic is. It’s very far removed from your average licensed spin-off.

Writer Paul Tobin makes you forget that this is a licensed comic. He turns in the latest chapter in a fantastic story that takes Jaime all over the globe, in search of a team of people who are stealing body parts to sell to the highest bidder. And now, they want to go after Jaime and her bionic limbs. The action is fast and furious and Tobin does some GREAT characterization this issue. Even though Jaime’s lost most, if not all, of her memory, Tobin really gives us a sense of just who she is and what she wants and what she’s fighting for.

Poor Jamie Summers. In Bionic Woman #2, she really gets put to the test of her new “powers.” This after thinking she lost her long-time boyfriend, Steve Austin, in a tragic explosion, then surviving an accident that left her almost dead. But thankfully, she got better. Better…stronger…faster.

Author Paul Tobin knows how to write two things really well: women and action. In a world where the only super powers that the main character has is being “really strong” Tobin makes this book exciting and intriguing all at the same time. Yes, being a cyborg isn’t really a huge super power in the current comic universe, but what I love about this is that Tobin MAKES it awesome in this world. One thing that I really like about the character of Jamie Summers is that she doesn’t feel sorry for herself. There’s no “I’m a machine, not a woman” tears or breakdowns or anything like that. Just straight-up butt kicking!
