Comic Review: Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3

The gang is well and truly all here!

Synopsis: The Original Girl Power! Catching a missile after its launch is the least of the trials facing Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) and Jaime Sommers (The Bionic Woman)!  Now, their greatest television enemies have joined forces, and they’re building an army for their master plan! Wonder Woman and the Bionic Woman prepare for a trip to South America — passing through the Bermuda Triangle as they go — but the villains have other schemes. All this, plus the return of Max, the Bionic Dog!

Review: I mentioned in my previous review that Max, The Bionic Dog, was the only missing character. Writer Andy Mangels gave Max his entrance in Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3. It was love at first sight for him and Diana, and now, the duo will be a trio going forward.

 Max was the cherry on top of a sundae with two distinct narrative flavors. First, readers were treated to an absolutely awesome multi-paneled action sequence in which Wonder Woman wrangled an errant missile from outside the invisible jet while Jaime piloted it. Between Judit Tondora‘s superb art and the meta-commentary Mangels gave Jaime,  I was on Cloud Nine.

The second flavor in the sundae was undiluted exposition as the villains reviewed their exploits. I hate exposition. Fortunately, I was able to enjoy this sequence thanks to marvelous flashback art and more meta-commentary. I also appreciated the editor’s notes listing pertinent episode titles.

Max led the transition into the issue’s cliffhanger. The gang is well and truly all here!
