Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman #2

   The beauty of comic books is that time is no obstacle to any story - so we can enjoy the warm nostalgic buzz of a team-up with the TV version of Wonder Woman (as played by the amazing Lynda Carter) and the original Bionic Woman (as played by the beautiful Lindsay Wagner), even though we've all aged quite a bit since then.

   (And yes, I watched both shows when they originally aired 40 years ago.)

   (Gad, 40 years. Really? I mean, really? Holy cow.)

   Sorry, I'm back.

   The creative team is obviously having a blast with the series, as the two heroines meet up both in their civilian lives and in the heroic "secret identities" - and it's a heck of a lot of fun.

   They're trying to track down some stolen tech, which involves chasing down a smuggler's ship and duking it out with a small army.

   There are evil plots afoot, and (as best as I can remember), villains who have opposed each heroine in the past have teamed up to make trouble.

    Then script by Andy Mangels has just the right feel, and the art by Judit Tondora is a lot of fun, with great likenesses of the main characters and the supporting cast as well.

   If you're a fan of the original shows (and who isn't?), then you should be reading this comic. It'll take you back to younger, adventurous days!

Grade: A-
