This December, two television icons from the 1970s will cross over for the first time in Dynamite Entertainment and DC Comics’ “Wonder Woman ’77 Meets the Bionic Woman” series. Written by pop culture historian Andy Mangels and drawn by Judit Tondora, the upcoming title boasts covers by Alex Ross, Cat Staggs and more.
According to the official series description,
Government agents Jamie Sommers and Diana Prince team their respective powers against a threat to national security in this series too big for the small screen! In this action-packed miniseries, the two television titans team up to fight a rogue cabal bent on wreaking havoc and stealing deadly weapons. Can CASTRA be stopped before their real targets are revealed and lives are lost? With super powers, bionic enhancements, surprise villains, and an invisible plane, just about anything is possible!
“The ‘Bionic Woman’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ television series were some of the most exciting of their time, and these two characters perfectly complement one another,” Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci said in a statement. “To finally see them together is a historic event for an entire generation of fans. This is going to be one of the most exciting crossovers we’ve done yet!”
“DC is thrilled to partner with Dynamite once again on a crossover of classic pop culture characters,” added Hank Kanalz, SVP, Editorial Strategy and Administration for DC Entertainment. “I can’t wait for fans to see what happens when these two iconic heroines meet in December.”
“For forty years, fans have been wondering what would happen if their favorite television heroines got to meet,” shared Mangels. “I’m thrilled to get to mix these two feminist icons into a massive story that respects not only the characters themselves, but also the magic that Lynda Carter and Lyndsay Wagner brought to their history-changing roles. The 10-year-old Andy would never have believed that instead of running around in his backyard making ‘wonder leaps’ and ‘bionic runs’, he’d actually get the opportunity to craft stories that mix the best of these two worlds into one!”
Featuring a black-and-white variant cover by Tondora, “Wonder Woman ’77 Meets the Bionic Woman” goes on sale December 7.
