CHRISTOPHER HASTINGS (The Unbelievable Gwenpool! Secret Agent Deadpool! Adventure Time! I Am Groot!) and DAVID HAHN (Batman '66! Bombshells: United!) proudly present a story from a time when there wasn't internet, but there WERE cyborgs!
It's the 1970s. Things are going great. Steve Austin (used to be an astronaut, now has robo-parts & a laser eye) heads to Japan to help Secret Agent Niko Abe stop a madman with missiles. Steve figures, no sweat. But then...sweat. How's Steve going to complete his mission, when his fancy $6,000,000 body starts (DRASTICALLY) depreciating in value!?

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Mar 8, 2019

    Even putting nostalgia aside, I can recommend the Six Million Dollar Man as a solid, entertaining read that makes for a great introduction to a forty-plus year old character and concept. Dynamite Entertainment assembled a top notch team to bring this property into the hands of readers old and young alike and I for one am eager to get my hands on the next issue. Please let this be a monthly and not a miniseries. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathan Simmons Mar 5, 2019

    This was my favorite comic book that I read this week. Fans of the original show should definitely give this a try. Or, you know, people who like happiness in general. Read Full Review

    Overall. A strong start, which takes Steve Austin in a slightly different direction than we have seen in previous comics and indeed the TV series itself. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 6, 2019

    For someone who doesn't really care or know anything about The Six Million Dollar Man, I had a fun time reading The Six Million Dollar Man #1. I think in the end the combination of how Steve Austin was written as a bit of a goof and the "Archie" styling of the art won me over as an overall theme. If you are a fan of The Six Million Dollar Man I figure you will enjoy this. If you have never seen or heard anything about the show then this is a great jumping-on point. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Mar 8, 2019

    This Six Million Dollar Man series gives the original action formula a bionic noogie. It's taking chances, always applause-worthy. Still, the comics-buying public may be split. Old-timers used to a taciturn Col. Austin may feel alienated by the Our Man Flint stretch. (If Derek Flint was played by a de-aged Steve Carrell instead of James Coburn.) Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jonathan O'Neal Mar 7, 2019

    Dynamite's "The Six Million Dollar Man" #1 is an update to the bionic man mythos in name only, and if not for the disconnect it would make for a relatively fun comic book romp. Readers new to the property might dig it, but fans looking for a sophisticated update of the '70s series beware. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Mar 8, 2019

    Dynamite has been having a bit of a resonance lately with a number of their licensed books being the best they ever have been. Showing that the right creative team can make anything work. The Six Million Dollar Man #1 has its moments but does not do enough to stand out from an ever-growing field. Read Full Review

    I loved the Six Million Dollar Man tv show as a kid. The action figure is still one of my all-time favorite toys. Bigfoot has never been cooler. I’m a Steve Austin fanboy. At the same time I can see how cheesey and ridiculous this show was in retrospect and fully expect a comic book based on the show to take a different direction. If you are going to do that however, I suggest doing it better than this.
    Art is about choices. I feel the choices made for this comic book were the least interesting that could have been made. What we get in this first issue is a young Steve Austin, bright-eyed and a bit naive, entering into his fist mission as a super-secret cyborg spy for the U.S. Government. It’s something new and certainly has pot more
