If any movie could be considered ripe for the “remake treatment” in Hollywood and still leave room for improvement on the original, it’s Robocop. A successful film franchise in the 90’s and a personal favorite of my younger self, Robocop now comes back to theaters in 2014 and, with it, a line of comic books designed to elaborate on the story instead of simply imitating it.
Through four stand-alone comics, the Robocop movie tie-in series expands the vision of the new film by telling the stories that are happening before, during and after the events of the upcoming film. How did scientists perfect the Robocop program before Alex Murphy? While Robocop takes on street crime, how will his actions affect the crooked cops, politicians, and businessmen of Detroit? These are some of the questions the comic series will put into perspective as readers get geared up for the theatrical release.
Written by a team of experienced comic writers, choose from Robocop: Beta, Robocop: Memento Mori, Robocop: To Live and Die in Detroit, and Robocop: Hominem Ex Machina for your robotic crime-fighting fix.
