Steve Austin is making a comeback at Dynamite Entertainment. CBR can exclusively reveal that writer Van Jensen and artist Ron Salas will continue Austin's adventures in "Six Million Dollar Man: Fall of Man," an all-new series.
According to the official series description,
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!
"I was attracted to this book for a lot of reasons," Jensen said. "I used to cover cutting-edge tech as a reporter, so I've long been fascinated with the intersection of technology and biology, and the ethical and moral quandaries of that realm. And working with an artist as skilled and creative as Ron was impossible to resist. And, the cherry on top, we have free rein to make this book big and weird and fun as hell, and we aim to do just that."
"'Six Million' seems like a remarkably apt place to begin my Dynamite work," added Dynamite senior editor, Matt Idelson. "In a lot of ways, I feel like I've come full circle with my career, and I'm in a place where the work takes front and center. To kick things off working on a character I spent a chunk of my childhood with couldn't be more perfect."
"Six Million Dollar Man: Fall of Man" #1 goes on sale July 13.
