Bionic Man: Volume 2 (2013)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Bionic Man: Volume 2 (2013) This update of the original Six-Million Dollar Man series presents an alternate version of Steve Austin. He's a bit younger and more "basic", like a football player rather than an astronaut. The first story has him visiting his father, Carl, who is dying of cancer. He goes to their old ranch and the guy is withered and crotchety. His sister shows up and she's fat. And Steve ends up leaving because his father doesn't want him to see him so weak. This family is very different than the one on the television series, when his father was killed during WWII when his plane was shot down over China. Here, his father is not only alive but has always been a horse rancher, which sort of combines two first season episodes and changes this around.

Then, Jamie Sommers, the woman he's engaged to, gets into a skydiving accident, which Steve finds out was no an accident. It was perpetrated by a "Maskatron", a robot created by mad scientist Dolenz.

But the main story, and my reason for picking up this graphic novel, is Bigfoot. The story is completely different than in the show. Rather than a cybernetic alien creature from another planet, it's the victim of Russian experimentation. A Nazi scientist had Russians capture a tribe of "Almas" because they are tougher than modern humans, an implanted them with various bionics. Steve battles the creature at first, then is able to communicate with it. He simply wants to save the life of his mate, who is rejecting the implants. Steve takes Bigfoot to the OSI facility in Colorado--and they are helped. But Steve wants to rescue all of the Almas--and he and Bigfoot go to Russia when things go awry. In the end, though, Sasquatch and his mate escape into the Rocky Mountains--and the entire incident leaves a rift between Steve and Goldman.

To tell the truth, this book is disappointing. It simply doesn't capture the "feel" of the original SIX-MILLION-DOLLAR-MAN. However, if you do want continuing stories of Steve Austin check out the first volume of Dynamite's THE SIX-MILLION-DOLLAR MAN: SEASON 6 (2015).
