You may recall that, back in the 1990s, there was talk of Kevin Smith making a movie out of The Six Million Dollar Man? Well, that didn’t get a go-ahead but you can still see what he had in mind.
Dynamite Entertainment is currently publishing a series of comic books, The Bionic Man, based on Smith’s movie script. The medium makes perfect sense as Smith once noted, “True story: when I turned in a script for The Six Million Dollar Man back in ’98, there was an exec who dismissed it as being more like a comic book than a movie.”
The first issue was published in August and did so well that Dynamite had to go back the the press for a second printing. The comic is being co-written by Smith and Phil Hester and drawn by Jonathan Lau. Legendary artist Alex Ross creates the amazing covers.
