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!

I’m not familiar with artist Leno Carvalho‘s work, but it’s quite impressive here! Man, there are some GORGEOUS action scenes in this issue, and they are drawn PERFECTLY!!!! And Carvalho never skimps on backgrounds or details or anything else. His anatomy is flawless, his page layouts are great, he’s just an all around great artist. Hopefully he’ll be on this book for a long time to come. He’s fantastic.

Whether you read The Bionic Man or not, you’re going to like this issue. If you DO read the companion series, you’re going to enjoy it that much more, but if you don’t, it’s still a great book. If you’re looking for something different than tights and capes, look no further. And a special shout out to all the FEMALE comic fans — you will love this book. It’s not stereotypical at all, there’s a great female lead who’s strong, independent and can take care of herself!
