I love Robocop. The first movie is, for my money, the perfect action film: great action, great cast, amazing special effects and, most importantly, it doesn’t overstay its welcome. The rest of the franchise may not have taken this advice, but the first film is perfect, in my opinion (though I honestly didn’t mind the reboot!).
As other Robocop fans may or may not know, Frank Miller did a treatment for Robocop 2 and Robocop 3, but neither were produced. Boom! put out comic adaptations of the original scripts a few years ago, and they were a real treat. Now they’re collecting the whole shebang, along with the original scripts, in Robocop by Frank Miller Omnibus. What better way to celebrate the Robocop that could have been by a Frank Miller who was in his prime?
Check out these preview pages, and bear in mind that its Robocop so its obviously not even remotely safe work work.
