The Bionic Man #20 picks up right where the last issue left off. We’ve got Steve halfway around the world, trying to stop the launch of a missile that could do some irreparable damage.

Aaron Gilespie is really hitting his groove on this title. He’s constantly gotten better and better at writing this book. In the past, his plots have been less than spectacular, but now they’re actually really interesting and entertaining. Combine that with some great dialogue for Steve Austin and you’ve got a very enjoyable comic. This issue in particular, might be his best yet. His portrayal of Steve is really well done, with all the classic hallmark humor, and intensity that Lee Majors brought to the role almost 40 years ago. Well done Mr. Gilespie!

At the same time, artist Rey Villegas is improving as well. I’ll be the first to admit, I REALLY didn’t care for his art when he first was on the book. Since then, I think it’s grown on me, but I look back at older issues and can tell that Villegas is actually getting better! He’s got some real consistencies with the major characters and you can look at the characters and immediately identify them. Also, his backgrounds have gotten a LOT better over time.

BUY THIS BOOK!!!! Yeah, I know, licensed comics have a certain stigma attached to them, but this is legitimately a well done, entertaining comic. You’re not gonna regret picking up this series.
