A good Robocop comic 23 years after the original film?  I’ll buy that for a dollar.

I mean no offense to Dynamite or the creators involved in this book, but I just didn’t expect it to be good.  It just didn’t seem possible.  If given the opportunity, I will buy everyone that had a hand in this book a drink, because they certainly proved me wrong.

Everything you’d expect in a good Robocop story is here.  Writer Rob Williams makes sure to include over-the-top violence, malfunctioning ED-290s, a biting sense of satire, and of course, Murphy’s struggle to figure out who/what he is.  All that, and he has set up a story arc that I am very excited to continue reading.

All of these elements are presented to you by artist Fabiano Neves.  His art was well-suited to the book and his story-telling was spot-on.  His Old Detroit looked run-down and grimy, and the panel-to-panel and scene-to-scene transitions were smooth.  And he draws some great gunshot wounds too!

I really hope this book continues as strong as it started, and that it finds a supportive audience.  This great #1 deserves your attention.
