The year is 1979. Iran has seized American hostages. Columbian drug cartels run rampant. And Le Chic's "Freak Out" dominates the charts. Amid this deeply troubled world, Steve Austin - everyone's favorite Six Million Dollar Man - is America's best hope in its fight against innumerable enemies. When Steve discovers disturbing secrets in OSI's past, he uses his cybernetic upgrades to rebel against the agency... but he'll face plenty of threats, like an enemy cyborg, and lasers, and ninjas!

    A sleeper success for a seventies reboot that feels like it's rebuilding a franchise that could just as easily have been forgotten. Read Full Review

    It's been quite some time since I've seen the reruns, so I can't reliably say how true-to-form this retelling is. If it's perpetual motion you seek, look no further. Perhaps the Bionic Woman will step in at some point and smooth over the mess the boys have made. Until then, enjoy the erratic goofiness of issue #1 " it practically promises to get more haywire next month. Read Full Review

    Nostalgia for the TV series and a serviceably crafted story can't save The Six Million Dollar Man - Fall of Man #1 from a derivative plot that sees Steve Austin go rogue after uncovering revelations about his bionics. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 9, 2016

    Comic Bastards - Steven Phillips Jul 13, 2016

    There's potential here for a more entertaining work, but what we're given is just potential without payout. The next few issues of the mini can easily swing toward excellence. Right now, it's just shy of mediocre. Read Full Review
