PREVIEW- Robocop: Road Trip

Long-time GhettoManga readers know I'm pretty robophobic. However, since he's half-machine, half-man and all cop, Robocop is cool with me. Peep these previews from the first two issues of Officer Murphy's new mini, Robocop: Road Trip...

Here's the Sales Pitch
Continuing the story from Dynamite's Robocop series, America has fallen into a landscape of revolution and chaos and OCP has taken over Old Detroit from the authorities in a political coup. It's up to Robocop and what's left of the Old Detroit Police Department to try and make it out of the state in order to get help from the US military. But ED-309s patrol the streets and OCP has a new, deadly robot prototype to send after Murphy and co. Meanwhile, Robocop's sanity continues to crumble along with his country.

After spawning a trilogy of films, a pile of comics, a bunch of videogames, a 2013 relaunch in development, and a crowd-funded weatherized 7 foot tall iron piece of public art, the cautionary tale against rampant technology, corporate greed and privatization of government that is Robocop continues, and it's interesting to see where they're going with it here. The first issue of this new series Robocop: Road Trip is in stores now, and #2 drops on January 25th.
