It’s getting there!!! Those that are the lest bit familiar with the origin of The Bionic Man know that Steve Austin‘s origin can’t be told in one or two issues. But in this third issue of the title, Kevin Smith, Phil Hester, and company start getting down to business.

I know what some of you are thinking. “It’s just a comic based on a TV show,” but let me assure you, that this issue is PACKED with both character development and emotion. It’s got just as much as any creator-owned or non-licensed comic that I’ve ever read. There’s some action thrown in, for good measure, but the story is what really drives this issue. There a lots of nods to the television series that this is based on and some will have you both cheering and laughing out loud. Well played, all around on the story front. It’s fantastic.

Art wise, Jonathan Lau hits another home run. There’s not many artists in the industry that can make five pages of a man with no legs and one arm laying in a hospital bed look awesome and, at the same time, convey that emotion that needs to come across. Lau manages to do both in this issue and the action scenes are superb.

The Bionic Man #3 is the best issue of the series so far, but you can tell by the end of this issue that the story is really starting to heat up. The upcoming issues should really turn up the action and deliver what we all have waited to see.
