Our Critical Assignment returns with a new episode taking a look at the premiere of a new Six Million Dollar Man comic book. John and Paul have mentioned The Bionic Man and The Bionic Woman comic books in the past and have found them both to be enjoyable series that offer bionic fans a little bionic action in a modern world. But now, Dynamite Comics, which produced the two former books, is producing a comic book that will take place in the continuity of the original series. The Six Million Dollar Man Season 6 will pick up where the fifth season left off with Steve facing off against a familiar (for us) foe. So what can one expect in this new series? John and Paul sit down with the driving force behind the development and writing of this new comic, James Kahoric. They talk writing for a tie-in property, Jamie Sommers place in this sixth season, and more.
