Robocop: Last Stand 8 (March 2014)

Robocop Last Stand 008 Cover

So Ed Brisson gets the job of sending the original Robocop into the sunset. My first thought–he does an admirable job, though he could have easily turned it into three issues. He’s got a lot of ideas for how to bring things together. And that spark, even if it’s hilarious fan fulfillment, leads me to my second thought.

It’ll be too bad if Boom! doesn’t continue with the license for these types of series. Experimental ones, where an artist like Öztekin gets free run. Or, if the artist doesn’t get free run, at least it appears he or she does.

This issue, with Brisson’s writing, makes me want more of he and Öztekin’s Robocop. Maybe a prequel… the creative spark seems like it might have mileage.

Robocop, regardless of marketers, was never a film needing a sequel. But Brisson and Öztekin give that franchise a fine send off.

  1. I never understood that either. i guess it’s the law of diminishing returns with these things. As a studio, i wouldn’t mind all the imaginary stories a publisher could handle. Not too many folks even read comics to worry about the franchise, and who knows, one of these mini series could be the next script.
