    All in all, it was a great start. I hope Jaime gets to visit Paradise Island before the story concludes. Read Full Review

    Overall, a series that gives everyone who watched it, those nostalgic feels, even their camaraderie, which is different than most female relationship portrayals. The story by Andy Mangels, is both funny and action paced, pretty much a perfect crossover episode.The art by Judith Tondora, is a cross between realistic and art deco. Altogether, what one hope it would be and expecting the rest of the series to be more of the same. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Erik Koehn Dec 4, 2016

    Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman is a pitch perfect comic for these properties.While the plot may be fairly basic, the creative team's ability to understand and present these characters more than makes up for a light plot. This book is also perfectly safe for little girls. So whether you're an old time fan (like me!) or you want to get something for a young female comic fan that isn't overly violent or sexual and presents strong female characters, this is for all of us. And in a comic culture where the Big Two seem allergic to not having their "heroes" punch and fight each other every month this is a refreshing and hopeful read. Read Full Review

    With Wonder Woman '77 Meets the Bionic Woman #1, writer Andy Mangels and Judit Tondora have created a debut issue that nails the fun tone of these two properties at their best, even as the issue doesn't shy away from telling an action-packed and exciting story that feels thoroughly contemporary.

    While I never considered myself a fan of either series, I was more of a Steven Austin kind of kid with my denim jacket (enough so that I told kids in school to call me Steve), this series definitely captures the tone and feel of it. If it was made into a live-action event it's exactly the kind of thing that would have really made my father happy as he was a dedicated fan of both shows. Mangels captures the style of the time and the shows right while Tondora brings it to life wonderfully with the curves, the costumes, and the silliness of expression at times. The team has done a solid job in introducing all of the basics here and I'm definitely curious enough to see how a second installment goes to see if it has enough room to breathe after introducing so much.

    'Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman' is not only a blast from the past but a reminder of what makes superhero comics so great. It's a chance to escape and get lost in the daring exploits of heroes who just get the job done, not for themselves or for the glory, they simply want to make the world a safer place. These themes are timeless and this comic celebrates the best in all of us. Read this book! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Dec 7, 2016

    This is a solid issue. It captures the tone and style of its source material well but still works on its own.The art is fun and engaging with a potentially interesting story to go with it. There's a lot of well paced and drawn action and it's a lot of fun to see these two characters together. I recommend reading the issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Dec 7, 2016

    At its best,Wonder Woman '77/Bionic Woman#1 is quick hitting, empowering fun with a retro twist as Diana and Jaime fight Cold War era bad guys. At its worst, there is occasionally no room to breathe in the story as Mangels and Tondora cram in plot beat after plot beat and extra character after character. For example, the first transformation sequence from Diana to Wonder Woman is only about a quarter of a page and falls short of the iconic moment in the show and even a recent homage to it inSupergirl. But the sound effects and active backgrounds keep the story's momentum going and makeWonder Woman '77/Bionic Woman#1 a slightly above average read. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 9, 2016

    In short, it's a book designed to appeal to fans who remember the shows, but doesn't require plot devotion or perfect recall (which is good, since I don't remember a lot about The Bionic Woman.) Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1 does a remarkable job with a difficult proposition, resulting in a fun story with well-rendered art Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Dec 27, 2016

    This is one of the books that, despite the fact that it features a Wonder Woman that is still popular in my house, doesn't normally grab my attention to be honest. The book works well as a nostalgia piece and the book has been clearly created by those who love both characters, for the fans who share their appreciation. Read Full Review

    Nerdist - Eric Diaz Dec 7, 2016

    Nevertheless, this is a light, breezy, fun comic that should be a real treat to anyone who grew up watching these two seminal shows in the '70s, or during reruns in the '80s and '90s like I did. If these two icons meant anything to you growing up, then you owe to yourself to pick up Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman. It's the perfect distraction from a world that could really use the brightness and positive feelings that these two characters embody right about now. Read Full Review
