This is a HUGE weekend for comic book and pop culture fans with both Fan Expo Canada happening in Toronto and the Baltimore Comic Con going on at the same time. Plus, there was the Diamond Retailer summit to open the weekend which is also a hot bed of comics and pop culture news! Check out the latest news below!
Wonder Woman ’77 Meets Bionic Woman hits stores in December and more details have emerged plus covers to issue #1
Government agents Jamie Sommers and Diana Prince team their respective powers against a threat to national security in this series too big for the small screen! In this action-packed miniseries, the two television titans team up to fight a rogue cabal bent on wreaking havoc and stealing deadly weapons. Can CASTRA be stopped before their real targets are revealed and lives are lost? With super powers, bionic enhancements, surprise villains, and an invisible plane, just about anything is possible!
Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci is excited about the team-up:
“The ‘Bionic Woman’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ television series were some of the most exciting of their time, and these two characters perfectly complement one another. To finally see them together is a historic event for an entire generation of fans. This is going to be one of the most exciting crossovers we’ve done yet!”
Hank Kanalz, SVP, Editorial Strategy and Administration for DC Entertainment is equally tickled:
“DC is thrilled to partner with Dynamite once again on a crossover of classic pop culture characters. I can’t wait for fans to see what happens when these two iconic heroines meet in December.”
Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman writer Andy Mangels had this to say:
“For forty years, fans have been wondering what would happen if their favorite television heroines got to meet I’m thrilled to get to mix these two feminist icons into a massive story that respects not only the characters themselves, but also the magic that Lynda Carter and Lyndsay Wagner brought to their history-changing roles. The 10-year-old Andy would never have believed that instead of running around in his backyard making ‘wonder leaps’ and ‘bionic runs’, he’d actually get the opportunity to craft stories that mix the best of these two worlds into one!”
The series is drawn by Judit Tondora with covers by Alex Ross, Cat Staggs and others. Some of the covers are below.
Wonder Woman ’77 Meets the Bionic Woman #1 hits stands December 7, 2016.
