Official press release for The Bionic Man vs. The Bionic Woman from Dynamite Entertainment:
THE BIONIC MAN VS. THE BIONIC WOMAN!
THE ULTIMATE BATTLE BEGINS IN JANUARY 2013!
October 12th, 2012, Mt. Laurel, NJ - Coming from Dynamite in January 2013, in association with NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products, two classic icons will clash in The Bionic Man vs. The Bionic Woman #1! Written by Keith Champagne and featuring covers by Ardian Syaf, Sean Chen, Jonathan Lau, Jack Herbert, and drawn by Jose Luis, this series is not to be missed!
In The Bionic Man vs. The Bionic Woman #1, Steve Austin joins forces with the FBI to track down a mysterious, seemingly-bionic, serial killer. But when the Bionic Man disappears, only Jamie Sommers has a chance to find him. But if their paths cross, will it be as friends, lovers...or mortal enemies? Nothing will ever be the same!
"Growing up a huge fan of Steve Austin and now having such a strong admiration for the work Kevin Smith and Phil Hester have done to redefine the characters, I almost have to pinch myself that not only do I get to play in this world, but I get to tell THE Steve Austin/Jamie Sommers story I've carried with me all these years," says writer Keith Champagne. "Expect plenty of twists and turns before it's all over because I'm putting both Steve and Jamie through their bionic paces. Let's see what they look like when or if they make it out to the other side."
"Bionic fans have asked for The Bionic Man vs. The Bionic Woman from the get-go. But we wanted to wait till we shipped over a years worth of Bionic Man's before releasing this. Now, prepare for ultimate bionic action!" - Dynamite President Nick Barrucci
