Comic Review: Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #2

The commentary about the plane’s lack of seat belts and Diana’s tendency to simply up and abandon her cars in the middle of missions justified this series alone.

Synopsis: Bullets & Bracelets & Bionics! The dream team that no one thought was even possible is now reeling after the events of the debut issue! Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) and Jaime Sommers (The Bionic Woman) must join forces to find out who laid waste at the IADC headquarters, without the help of a powerful ally. Meanwhile, the evil cabal CASTRA continues its evil plans, and not one, not two, but three familiar villains are revealed! But while Wonder Woman and the Bionic Woman engage in a battle at sea, a jailbreak in Washington, D.C. leads to another shocking returnee…with a very deadly agenda!

Review: Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #2 fulfilled the promise of the debut issue admirably. The action beats were spot on. It was the character beats in Andy Mangelsscript, however, that gave the issue its spark.

I loved that Diana put in an appearance as Wonder Woman at the shiva for Joe Atkinson and comforted his daughter in Hebrew. I also appreciated that Steve Austin got a shout out. My favorite moments, though, centered around Jaime’s reaction to Wonder Woman’s invisible plane. The commentary about the plane’s lack of seat belts and Diana’s tendency to simply up and abandon her cars in the middle of missions justified this series alone.

Judit Tondora‘s art continued to be superb. While she rendered each of the four returning villains perfectly, Tondora really imbued Dr. Cyber with extra flare and panache. She wore that half mask much more stylishly than the Phantom ever did.

The first two installments of Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman were almost everything I’ve wanted as a fan of both shows. The only missing element is Max the Bionic Dog — the only other male Diana would fall in love with.
