Two iconic shows of the ’80s are coming together for an epic crossover this July as Dynamite Entertainment has announced a Charlie’s Angels / Bionic Woman comic series. Written by Cameron DeOrdio, illustrated by Soo Lee, colored by Addison Duke, and lettered by Tom Napolitano, the comic is set in the original series continuity for both shows and takes place after their finales.
Charlie’s Angels / Bionic Woman picks up with the Angels getting an assignment to steal back a patent from its mysterious inventor. The big obstacle standing in their way is the toughest counterspy they’ve ever encountered in the form of Jaime Sommers (aka the Bionic Woman). Who will come out on top in the match of the cyborg vs the team of highly trained private investigators?
Writer Cameron DeOrdio says:
Charlie’s Angels/Bionic Woman is a story about good people trying to do good things who end up at cross purposes. We’ve made a spy comic, with sneaking around, exotic ‘80s tech and tense undercover infiltration, but it’s also about questioning the track you find yourself on and defining for yourself what’s right, even if it means turning your whole life upside down. I’m really excited to have Soo Lee onboard for this book. The way she draws both the Bionic Woman and the Angels perfectly captures their personalities, while also stylistically representing their differing perspectives.
Charlie’s Angels / Bionic Woman will feature covers from Cat Staggs, Jim Mahfood, and Ron Lesser.
Artist Soo Lee added:
When I was asked if I wanted to work on a crossover comic of Charlie’s Angels and the Bionic Woman, I had to jump on the opportunity. I’ve always wanted to draw a 70/80’s themed comic and being a fan of the show, to be able to work on this project is a dream. I wanted to be loyal to the style of the era and give a nod to the original series. Cameron and I both clicked on the vision for this story right away and with his fun writing, I think we both brought the Angels back to life!
Editor Matt Idelson says:
It’s great to be playing with Charlie’s Angels again, and pitting them against the Bionic Woman is such a natural idea, it was inevitable. And while I was of course familiar with Cameron and Soo’s prior work, they’ve nonetheless been a revelation to me. This book is too much fun!
Charlie’s Angels / Bionic Woman #1 is set for release in July 2019. If timed right, the finale for this series should coincide with the release of the new Charlie’s Angels movie in November.
