More DC comics projects are in the making. The latest announcement is this attractive crossover :ww:. The details are as follows

Quote:
In the new comic series "Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman," government agents Jamie Sommers and Diana Prince pool their superpower resources against a dire threat to national security. In this action-packed comic miniseries, the two superheroes team up to fight a rogue secret faction called CASTRA, who are determined to create chaos and steal deadly weapons. They're drawn as they were played by 1970s TV stars Lynda Carter ("Wonder Woman") and Lindsay Wagner ("The Bionic Woman"). The new comic series will be written by Andy Mangels ("The X-Files") and illustrated by Judit Tondora ("Protectors"). Artists Alex Ross and Cat Staggs will also be creating various covers.

"For 40 years, fans have been wondering what would happen if their favorite television heroines got to meet," Mangels told CBR. "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 Lindsay Wagner brought to their history-changing roles."

"Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman" will launch on December 7.

Can't say fairer than that! :D

Never watched much of either show but I have to say I am still intrigued.

I was lucky enough to have grown up watching both these shows. Wonder Woman really set the bar for super hero shows back then (didn't hurt that Lynda Carter was a total fox). And Lindsay Wagner was the perfect addition to the Six Million Dollar man franchise, so good that she got her own show.

I'm sure Baywatch got the idea of slow mo running from both these shows!

Anyone watch the Bionic Woman remake at all? I thought it wasn't to bad considering, but typically it got flipping cancelled!

This is a crossover that appears to be liked by most of comic fans, specially fans of their respective TV shows. More important is this collaboration between DC and smaller publishers like IDW & Dynamite. All their past projects were successful (in my opinion), including: Legion of Superheroes - Star Trek, Green Lantern - Star Trek, Batman - Ninja Turtles.

And now we have two new projects:
Batman - Ninja Turtles 2 & Green Lantern - Star Trek 2.

I like the idea of GL & Trek, massive fan of both though haven't gotten around to reading the first run. May have to binge read it before the second volume hits.

The 1st GL-Star Trek was a good read, and was destined to a sequel.

I've got both Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes & Star Trek/Green Lantern from a HumbleBundle but they are part of a long list of titles I own but haven't read yet.

Really must get on with that.

I was very keen to read Star Trek/Legion being a big fan of both but was actually a bit disappointed. There were clever bits in the story and lots of fan-boy moments but in the end it felt fairly average, not bad just ok.
