Colonel Steve Austin is at death's door after the catastrophic crash landing of his experimental aircraft, and even as surgeons struggle to save his life, the shadowy figures in the upper echelons of the espionage service O.S.I. plot to augment him with dangerous, untested bionics. Meanwhile, the entity known as Hull amasses a secret army bent on wiping humanity from the face of the Earth. The only person capable of stopping Hull is Steve Austin, the Bionic Man, but will he survive his own genesis as the world's first cyborg?

    This issue contained a lot of exposition, and it was necessary, nor did I find it boring" but something was missing here. I'm happy with the art, the descriptions of Hull's brutality are interesting and the dialogue flows smoothly, but I'm having trouble figuring out who a lot of the characters are and what they want. Before I read issue 3, I imagine I'll have to read issue 1 and 2 again, but if that doesn't help me make sense of who all these people are, then my patience will be about worn out. Still, I'm not unhappy with the book, but there is room for improvement. Read Full Review

    I can understand the need to stretch a story out - you need to have enough material to fill a trade, and in the case of this property, making NBC happy in terms of sales. Smith can be verbose, but allowing more of the universe to be built works in this installment. The art is okay, and if you picked up the first issue, Bionic Man #2 is worth picking up. I still optimistic that this series will satisfy, and for now I'm giving Bionic Man #2 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
