It didn’t take much to get us on board when we heard The Bionic Woman was finally getting its Season Four.  Following other classic genre properties like The Six Million Dollar Man, The X-Files, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Jaime Sommers wasn’t going to make it back to the small screen very soon.  But with Dynamite Comics’ four-issue limited series first published in 2014, at least we had an opportunity to see where a new set of creators would have taken the character after we last saw her in her own series in 1978.

Those four issues are now available this week for the first time together in a trade edition.  You’ll find familiar faces like Steve Austin and Oscar Goldman, as well as plenty of cyborgs and Fembots.  But the star is still Jaime Sommers, and the series, written by Brandon Jerwa with interior artwork by David Cabrera, will take you back in time.

Starting next Wednesday, September 17, 2014, the Bionic Woman is back.  This time, in her third comic book series in the past two years, following Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, and The Six Million Dollar Man, it’s a continuation of the original television series, right where the series last left our bionic heroine.

Dynamite Comics is publishing the new series written by Brandon Jerwa, with interior art by David T. Cabrera.  Issue #1 features cover art by Sean Chen and Ivan Nunes and a photo incentive cover featuring Lindsay Wagner as Jaime Sommers.

So how does Issue #1 fare?

Bionic Woman legs

They have the introduction right, presumably to begin each issue like an episodes of the series.  As to moving the series forward in continuity of the era, the tech gets a slight–but only slight–upgrade, with walkie-talkies replaced with wireless comm-links in Jaime’s ears.  Dr. Rudy Wells and Oscar Goldman are back, too.  So the setting checks out.
