It's The Six Millions Dollar Man's 40th anniversary, and we at Dynamite are proud to bring you the direct continuation of the classic television series with Season 6! Better. Stronger. Faster. The original Six Million Dollar Man, Steve Austin was a man barely alive until the OSI turned him into the world's first Bionic Man. Now he and Oscar Goldman are the most effective team in National Security. But a rogue faction in the OSI is making a power play for that position with a new type of infiltration agent - one that is completely obedient and robotic. Can a soulless machine that wears Steve Austin's very face make the Six Million Dollar Man obsolete?   For the 1st Time EVER!  Fan favorite toy-line character Maskatron makes his Six Million Dollar Man debut and becomes a part of the classic television series mythology with a violent and terrifying purpose.  And as Steve's world is threatened from within, his very actions unknowingly release an alien menace u

    Shameless nostalgia it might be, but Six Million Dollar Man Season 6 is also a quality comic in it's own right. Personally I can't wait for the next issue and hope that this is just the start of a long run. Welcome back, Steve. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Mar 12, 2014

    Were off to a nice start in this series continuing where the TV show left off. Jim Kuhoric captures the feel of the 70s time period and Juan Antonio Ramirezs art ors it justice as well. We have a couple of big problems that the Bionic Man will have to deal with. It threatens everything hes used to and it will be fun to see how things develop from here. Fans of the show should not miss out on this. Even if you haven't watched the show, you could jump in and catch up. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Mar 10, 2014

    I think what elevated the comic for me the most was a greater sense of passion and fun to the comic, as well as a sort of happier tongue-in-cheek ridiculousness about the action sequence. You can really tell the creative team is having a blast with the concept, and really embraced the silliness that was inherent to the TV show. It feels very much like Six Million Dollar Man is completely at peace with being what is, in essence, a the comic book version of the adventures of a middle schooler's action figures. It's that gung-ho, game-for-nonsense attitude that really pushes this one into the recommendation zone for me. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Mar 12, 2014

    The glaring problem is the art. After a beautiful Alex Ross cover, the interior work is just lame. It’s a problem Dynamite has had in the past, a dedication to finding people who can draw characters to look like their human counterparts, without actually finding great artists. Juan Antonio Ramirez is a solid factory artist, somebody who understands what goes where and why it goes there, but he has no style, no presence, and the Six Million Dollar Man book suffers because of it. This is the kind of work that would be a good fit for backgrounds, but not main characters or action. Dynamite needs to make an artist switch if they want Six Million Dollar Man to really catch on.

    All in all, I get what it's trying to do, but it doesn't feel right. There is potential, but right now it comes as an abrupt change of pace for what can only be argued is a niche audience. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 13, 2014

    This series is only for one group of people: fans of the original Six Million Dollar Man. It offers nothing for people freshly exposed to the franchise and when you consider how much content is similar or better than this that's been made since the show went off the air" well it doesn't look like Steve Austin has much of a chance to win over new fans with his form-fitting long-sleeved tees and tight jeans. The bottom-line is this issue tried really hard to pick up right after the end of the fifth season and it succeeded" but that's not a compliment. Read Full Review
