NYCC 2013: The Six Million Dollar Man Season 6 by Dynamite
Dynamite and NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products are proud to announce that the beloved television action hero Colonel Steve Austin will celebrate his 40th Anniversary by returning to comics in the upcoming Six Million Dollar Man: Season 6 series, set immediately following the classic television continuity. Featuring the writing talent of award-winning author James Kuhoric and artwork by Juan Antonio Ramirez, the upcoming Six Million Dollar Man: Season 6 comic series will launch with covers by legendary painter Alex Ross.
A direct follow-up to the classic television series, the Season 6 series pits Steve Austin and his trusted handler Oscar Goldman against a rogue faction of the OSI. A new type of infiltration agent is the key to the treacherous power play – one that is robotic and completely obedient to the traitors. Can a soulless machine make the world’s first Bionic Man obsolete? Six Million Dollar Man: Season 6 will hold special appeal for longtime fans, as the infamous villain Maskatron debuts for the first time within story continuity with a violent and terrifying purpose. Furthermore, Austin’s role as a NASA pilot will return to prominence, as conspiracies involving extraterrestrial technology and close encounters take root at the OSI.
The Six Million Dollar Man: Season 6 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ December 2013 Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release beginning in February 2014 it’ll be available through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
