If the first issue was a bionic-powered trip back to the 1970s, this issue is that times at least two. Writer Jim Kuhoric and artist Juan Antonio Ramirez continue to immerse the reader in all things bionic; for fans of the show, they’ve really struck a chord.
Kuhoric in particular really knows The Six Million Dollar Man as only a true fan can, and it shows in the little touches and bits of authenticity he brings to this issue… which really does raise it up a notch over the last one.
We’ve run out of positive adjectives with which to describe the compelling story that writer and cover artist Matt Wagner has unfolded in this mini-series. It has not only been a page turner in the immediate sense, but it’s been one of those stories you end up thinking about later, after you’ve put the comic down and gone onto something else. Wagner and artist Wilfredo Torres have really set the stage for the last two issues. If they’re as good as the rest of the series, this will really be one to remember.
