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

Lifelong Wonder Woman fan Andy Mangels had the brain wave to write an adventure, whereby the Bionic Woman teams up with the other famous 70’s TV heroine of the time, the iconic Lynda Carter version of Wonder Woman. Together they would have to face off against a number of their respective foes from the TV 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

After the attack Diana and Jamie are soon on the hunt for the perpetrators. The two women bond quickly as they work together on the case to retrieve stolen experimental missiles.

Little do the heroines know that a group of old nemesis are raising an army of Fembots and that they have sprung from prison an old foe of Wonder Woman, who is intent on seeking his revenge on the Amazon Princess and her people – Nazi Captain Radl!
