Just because they could rebuild her, doesn't mean her life isn't a wreck! After Jaime Sommers suffers a horrific parachute accident, her then-boyfriend, Steve Austin, convinces his superiors to save her life using similar bionic parts to the ones that made him the Bionic Man. The doctors / scientists replace both Jaime's legs. Her right arm. Her ear. And a few other surprises! Now, she is the Bionic Woman, and her body is faster, and stronger, but much of the memory of her past life is missing. But old lives have a way of popping back up again, and when the recipients of the earliest bionic prototypes are being killed across the globe, horribly murdered with their bionic parts stolen, Jaime has to put her new life in Paris on hold. Especially since it now looks like the mysterious killers are done with the small fry. They want the upgrade. They want the Bionic Woman! It's bullets, bionics, and baguettes in the city of love in this trade paperback collecting issues #1-6 of The Bionic Woman series, complete with a cover gallery.
So why did I love BIONIC WOMAN? Probably because writer Paul Tobin was able to execute the perfect balancing act: not only did he stay true to the source material, but he (intelligently) updated it to reflect a modern day cyborg, complete with built-in wifi! - Ain't It Cool News
"If you never read Bionic Man or seen Six Million Dollar Man you will not be lost. This was a great start for the series." - Player Affinity
"From start to finish, you don't really get a chance to catch your breath. I'll be honest, I'm a mark for Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers, but I can't get over how GREAT this comic is." - Geeks of Doom
"So, how do you start a new ongoing series that spins off a similar ongoing series of an eerily similar name? You start with action, and lots of action. And, when you decide to take a breather from the action you fill the readers in on who the main character is. Paul Tobin has given a very successful first issue. He weaves the back story of the Bionic Woman, Jaime Sommers marvelously into the story." - One Geek Nation
