The Bionic Man Coming From Dynamite Comics

When I was in high school, The Six Million Dollar Man debuted on television and changed the lives of all young viewers.  Everybody wanted to be in a terrible accident so they could get turned into Steve Austin, cyborg.  Lee Majors did a great job of being the laconic hero with near-Superman powers, and we waited each week for a new episode.

Thirteen years ago, there was a rumor that the television series was going to be revived as a movie.  Didn't happen.  But Kevin Smith (Green Hornet, Clerks) did do a script that was never made.  Hollywood's loss is comicdom's gain, because now Dynamite Comics is unleashing a brand new series, The Bionic Man.

Can't wait to see what they do with this one.  Here are four variant covers.

You can find the news release here.
