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.
Sadly, The Bionic Woman #10 is the last issue of this highly underrated series. Although it was plagued by many things like lateness and low readership, quality storytelling surely wasn’t the problem.
Writer Paul Tobin ends this series the same way he started it – with some good action, page-turning suspense, and a thrilling story. It’s Jamie and the Fembots versus Russia in this issue, and by the looks of these things, Russia’s chances aren’t looking too great. Once again, Tobin has taken the regular, expected story and flipped it on its ear. There’s some really great hold your breath moments in this issue, as well as some great action and a definite ending to the Fembots storyline. The book also ends with a wink and a nod, just like comic books used to end, but it never goes over the top corny either.
