RoboCop Image

Back in 2014 a remake to Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi classic RoboCop was released. And while not as disastrous as some believed it would be, the remake did not fare too well critically or financially. Now another attempt at a new entry in the franchise has been announced.

MGM has begun developing RoboCop Returns, and they’ve brought in Neill Blomkamp to direct it. But the movie will not be another remake. Instead, they’re taking a similar approach to the latest in the Halloween franchise and making a direct sequel to Verhoeven’s original.

RoboCop #2 review header
RoboCop #2
Written by Joshua Williamson
Art by Carlos Magno
Covers by Goni Montes
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: August 6, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

If Superman was the quintessential idea of truth, justice, and the American way in the ’30s and ’40s, RoboCop was that for the ’80s and ’90s. Cold, analytical, machine processed justice. Truth that was incorruptible, and could be backed up and revised later if needed.

And, of course, there is nothing more American than megacorporations owning everything. It wasn’t a huge leap to assume they would someday own the police when the movie came out in 1987, and the sentiment hasn’t gone away in the last 30 years.

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Oh, Canada!” Henchman 21 and “USA!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 2, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

A happy belated Canada Day to all my friends north of the border and a happy early Independence Day to all my friends in the U.S. Hope you all get to enjoy a nice three-day weekend, unless you have to work, which I can’t really help you with. What I can help you with is comics, specifically what comics to buy this week. So celebrate your freedom by supporting capitalism in all its glory and buying some comics. It’s what Cap and Supes and especially the U.S. Agent want you to do. And if you want to make them sad this week that’s fine, all you have to do is ignore the advice of The GoD List!
