Official Press Release
ROBOCOP: ROAD TRIP IN COMIC STORES EVERYWHERE THIS DECEMBER!
September 20, 2011, Runnemede, NJ – In December 2011, Dynamite Entertainment proudly returns to 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: Road Trip #1.
Based on the cult classic film of the same name, Dynamite’s RoboCop: Road Trip series combines director Paul Verhoeven’s original world of a futuristic dystopian Detroit with a larger, overarching conspiracy theory (in the spirit of All the President’s Men) and high action, extreme violence and satire. Once again spearheading RoboCop is the acclaimed writer, Rob (GHOST RIDER) Williams, with art by Unai and covers by the amazing Fabiano Neves! Be sure to pick up RoboCop: Road Trip #1 this December!
“Road Trip is our first chance to take a look at Robocop’s twisted version of America outside the confines of Old Detroit,” says series writer Rob Williams. “But OCP isn’t going to just let Murphy and what’s left of the Old Detroit Police Department run off to get help. An entirely new deadly robot prototype is on their tail. And with Murphy’s mind fracturing following the death of his partner, Lewis, Road Trip has a somewhat psychedelic double meaning. This is Robocop’s world as you’ve never seen it before.”
