In The Six Million Dollar Man, Season Six #3, Steve Austin has a LOT of work to do! And, most of it, he’s not even aware of yet. Will he make it through? C’mon, it’s Steve Austin!
Once again, writer Jim Kuhoric does a fantastic job at writing this comic. It’s got everything that you want to see and more. Think of it as watching the original television series, but with today’s special effects. That’s the great thing about comics. NOTHING is off limits. He doesn’t have a producer or a studio to answer to or one that will not allow him to do certain things because it would be too expensive. So, he shoots for the moon, and he totally scores! This issue is packed with action, subplots, and all around great action. There are healthy doses of mystery, suspense, and all-out fun. Comics that are written like this are few and far between.
Juan Antonio Ramirez does an awesome job this issue, just like the previous two issues. His style for this book is perfect. He manages to keep everything looking true to the series and time period without it being “too 70s” for readers who aren’t familiar with the television series or that time period. And, I love the way he lays out a page. It’s very easy for the eye to follow and it’s just out and outright great storytelling.
This creative team is 3 for 3 on this series. Seriously, if you have affinity for this property or are just looking for something different than normal superhero books, then you need to pick up this series. It’s something different and refreshing and if you grew up watching the TV show, it’s a great way to relive the memories and it tells an exciting new story at the same time.
