New RoboCop Ongoing Series Picks Up Where the Classic Film Left Off
At BOOM! Studios, the classic 1987 RoboCop film holds a special place in their hearts, so they’re taking the next step to give fans an all-new, ongoing RoboCop series set in that very world. Writer Joshua Williamson and artist Carlos Magno craft a story of crime and corruption that fans of Gotham Central, Stray Bullets, and Incognito will enjoy, bringing the grittiness of RoboCop and Old Detroit to four-color life with an intensity never seen before.
Dive into the harsh world of Old Detroit with RoboCop and his partner, Anne Lewis, following the events of the original film. A deadly and charismatic criminal, Killian, is released from jail. He went into the slammer before RoboCop hit the streets, and now he wants to take out the biggest cop in the city. When OCP wants to take guns off the street, Killian sees it as his opportunity to take on the former Alex Murphy!
RoboCop #1 arrives in comic shops on July 2nd with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAY141131. The issue ships with a main cover by Goñi Montes and incentive covers available from Carlos Magno and Alexis Ziritt.
