The Bionic Woman hatches a plan to defeat the fembot army while the Amazons defend their home.
The cover by Cat Staggs is gorgeous. I love the use of orange; that’s not a color I see often with comics. The contrast between the normally colored version and the big orange heads is a really cool image that I like a lot.
The interior art is by Judit Tondora with colors by Roland Pilcz. Their work is gorgeous as well. The characters are expressive and distinct and the action is pretty dynamic. Paradise Island is beautifully drawn; I’m glad so much of the issue is set there because it creates wonderful backgrounds.
I love the scope of this story. It feels huge even though the issue really has two locations for the most part. The battle between the fembot army and the Amazons is really great. It’s a really exciting issue; the Amazon army kicking ass is always fun and it’s nice to see so much of it, especially in this continuity.
Andy Mangels balances the two shows well, both in this issue and the entire series. I never feel like one show is shafted for the sake of the other. It’s a perfect blend of the two. And while I am more familiar with Wonder Woman, the comic makes me want to check out more of The Bionic Woman.
This is a great conclusion to a great mini-series. It has the excitement of an event comic. The art is great, the action is fun and it’s a wonderful tribute to two great shows. I highly recommend reading this issue.
