This mini-series saw an inter-company tie up between DC Comics and Dynamite Entertainment, the latter whose table of characters covered a wide range of classic pulp and TV based characters. This included Jaime Sommers, otherwise known as the Bionic Woman, played by Lindsay Wagner in the 70’s TV series.

Life long Wonder Woman fan Andy Mangels had the brain wave to write an adventure, whereby the Bionic Woman would team up with the other famous 70’s TV heroine of the time, the iconic Lynda Carter version of Wonder Woman, and have them face off together against a number of their respective foes from the shows.

Using actual depictions of some of the characters from both series, the comic was a true love letter to both characters and contained many Easter eggs for fans to enjoy.

Synopsis

A sinister cabal known as CASTRA is causing problems in Washington DC and elsewhere, bombing a building, threatening scientists, stealing experimental missiles and plotting a jailbreak. The U.S. Government agencies bring their operatives together, including Diana Prince, agent of the Inter Agency Defence Command and Jamie Sommers, agent of the Office of Scientific Investigation, to counter the attacks.

As Wonder Woman the Bionic Woman they are able to help, but the I.A.D.C. is breached by a mysterious villain and the director, Joe Atkinson, is killed!
