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

Continuing to work together to track down their foes, Diana and Jamie pick up the bionic dog, Max to help them before heading to what they believe is CASTRA’s secret base in South America.

On the way however Wonder Woman takes the opportunity to visit her homeland and introduces Jamie to her extended family of Amazon sisters including Amadona and Nubia. Wonder Girl elects to join them on their mission as they then continue on to their final destination.

Meanwhile their foes have assembled to put their plan in motion and use their army of Fembots to invade Paradise Island!
