Dynamite to Release All-New ROBOCOP Comic Series
The future of law enforcement is back...
In January 2010, Dynamite Entertainment re-instates the future of law enforcement to clean up the mean streets of Detroit. "Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law." And it all begins in the all-new, high-octane adventure of RoboCop #1.
Based on the cult classic film of the same name, Dynamite's RoboCop series combines director Paul Verhoeven's original world of a futuristic dystopian Detroit with a larger, overarching conspiracy theory and high action, extreme violence and satire. Bringing RoboCop out of retirement for another run is the stunning creative team of writer Rob (CLASSWAR, JUDGE DREDD, STAR WARS) Williams and artist Fabiano (MARVEL ZOMBIES VS ARMY OF DARKNESS) Neves. Covers by Stephen "Wolverine" Segovia.
"We're coming in off the back of the first Verhoeven movie and pretty much ignoring everything else that's ever happened Robocop-wise," says series writer Rob Williams. "So, Dick Jones is gone. OCP are still there, albeit in a restructured form. Some unnamed time has passed since the end of the first movie, but that's our status quo pretty much. Old Detroit's overrun by crime, the country's following it down the tubes due to a ‘super recession' and Murphy, Lewis and the rest of the ODPD are fighting a losing battle on the streets. And then things get an awful lot worse..."
Robocop #1 will feature two covers: one by artist Stephen Segovia (pictured above) and another by up and coming Dynamite Artist, Johnny D.
