DC Comics And Dynamite Entertainment Unite For Wonder Woman 77 Meets The Bionic Woman
“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,” says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “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!”
The two companies previously collaborated on the well-received ‘Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet’ and are excited to bring these two beloved heroes together.
“DC is thrilled to partner with Dynamite once again on a crossover of classic pop culture characters,” says 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.”
The new series will be written by Andy Mangels (Star Trek, The X-Files) and illustrated by Judit Tondora (Protectors), and will launch with several covers from the likes of Alex Ross and Cat Staggs.
“For forty years, fans have been wondering what would happen if their favorite television heroines got to meet,” says bestselling author Andy Mangels, acknowledged as one the world’s top experts on Wonder Woman. “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!”
Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman will launch on December 7th. You can read the official description below, and make sure to check out the variant covers in the gallery.
