The Bionic Man #13 continues the story that everyone’s been waiting for. Bigfoot. The creative team has taken a lot of liberties with this one, and it really pays off. They blindside you with more surprises than you can handle. And hey, it’s Bigfoot.

Writers Phil Hester and Aaron Gillespie really hit their marks this issue. It’s the second chapter in the Bigfoot storyline and it shows NO signs of slowing down. There’s some great twists and turns that you’ll never see coming, as well as a healthy mix of mystery, action, and surprises. In fact, the last couple of pages are quite shocking, and it’ll have you counting the days until the next issue. After the end of Kevin Smith’s adapted screenplay in this title, I was very afraid that the title would flounder around looking for its own identity, but thanks to Phil Hester, it has flown seamlessly into a fantastic title that I want to read every month, no exceptions. And, this going beyond my love for the franchise, this is a very entertaining comic, that excels because it doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not. Look at the title and you know what you’re getting into, the writers know that and give you exactly what you want.

Ed Tadeo turns in some great pages in this issue. He’s really getting a feel for The Bionic Man universe. In previous issues, somethings seemed a little out of place, but here, everything gels very well. He’s got the action panels down pat and does some interesting things with the dramatic panels. He’s created some interesting looks for Bigfoot and company, as well as some great tech that fits in perfectly in this title. All in all, Tadeo is shaping up to be a great artist for this series.

What’s not to love about this issue? It’s The Bionic Man vs. Bigfoot!!!! OK, besides that, there’s a ton of other great reasons to like this issue. Great writing, fantastic art all combined in a single issue. Pick this one up NOW!!!
