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.

When tackling an existing property, creators throughout all mediums often find themselves in an unenviable position. They are forced to walk the line of fan expectation to honor the source material, yet their final product must also be fresh and original. This is never an easy feat, as many Hollywood scribes will tell you, but in Dynamite Entertainment’s The Bionic Man, Kevin Smith, Phil Hester, and Jonathan Lau manage to not only meet expectation, but exceed it as well.

The Bionic Man #2 opens strong, with Steve Austin in trouble after a catastrophic accident while testing a new fighter jet for the government. With Steve’s life on the line, we get to know a little more about the villain Hull by meeting the people who gave him his bionic attributes. Hull was meant for more than his murderous ways, but as we learn by issue’s end, he is not open to discussion about his path. He is a focused man with a strong agenda, and nothing will deter his will.

Release date: August 24, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

The last time Colonel Steve Austin was published in comic book form was in June of 1978. Thirty-three years later, Dynamite Entertainment brings him back in The Bionic Man #1. Ladies and gentlemen, it was worth the wait.

For those of you expecting Steve Austin of Six Million Dollar Man fame to be full-on bionic in this issue, you’ll be a little disappointed. But, that’s about the only thing that’s lacking in this first issue. Dynamite made a spectacular decision by putting their A-Team of Phil Hester and Jonathan Lau on this book. The team did a fantastic job adapting Kevin Smith‘s Green Hornet screenplay into a fun, action-packed and all around excellent comic, and to no one’s surprise, they do the same thing here.

Each and every week “The Heartbreak Kid” Henchman21 and “The Mississippi Blue Blood” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of August 24, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

This week, however, marks the beginning of a brand new era with the first installment of a guest writer. Who is he?? Is he a former world heavyweight champion? Or is he a top contender for the cruiserweight belt? Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t. Time will only tell. Comics! This week, we see the likes of Chew, Gates of Gotham, TMNT, The Bionic Man, and Captain America jockeying for position so that they can climb the ladder of success and pull down the ever coveted title of Doom of the Week. So, are there great comics coming out this week? Well, in the immortal words of Zack Ryder, “Woo woo woo! You know it!”

The Six Million Dollar Man, Complete Season One DVDThe Six Million Dollar Man
The Complete Season One
DVD
TimeLife

I recently had a chance to view the series The Six Million Dollar Man Season 1 on DVD. The classic show follows the adventures of former astronaut Colonel Steve Austin (Lee Majors), who was horribly injured after crashing an experimental airplane. Austin is rebuilt with bionic parts. He has a bionic arm, eye, and two bionic legs. He can run at incredible speeds, has superhuman strength in his bionic arm and can see over great distances.

Colonel Austin repays his debt to the people who built him by going on secret missions. I remember watching reruns of this show as a child and playing with my brother’s Steve Austin action figure. This DVD set brought back a lot of those memories. The Six Million Dollar Man was a fun, action-packed show. Some of the effects seem a little dated. There was a fight scene between Steve Austin and an alligator that looks hilarious now. However, the show still retains its charm.
