Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3

   Those of us old enough to remember the TV series that starred Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and Lindsay Wagner as The Bionic Woman (Jaime Sommers) are bound to enjoy this series teaming up those two icons.

    That's because it faithfully recreates that era and gives both heroines plenty of chances to demonstrate their status as action stars.

   The story starts with a bang as they must find a way to stop a missile attack - and remember, the TV version of WW could not fly under her own power. Luckily, she does have an invisible jet handy.

   The issue spends a bit of time introducing the large cast of villains (and note to writers: adding a gag about all that exposition does not make it less noticeable). The lineup will make fans of the original shows smile - there are lots of familiar faces in there.

   The script by Andy Mangels is lots of fun and gives each character the proper voice, and the art by Judit Tondora is dynamic and does a great job of capturing the image of all the actors who brought the cast to life.

   So if you're in the mood for nostalgia - or just a rollicking good adventure - this series is right in your wheelhouse!

Grade: A-
