WHY WE LOVE IT: With the release of RoboCop, a re-imagining of the all-time classic, fans of the new and old will be immersed in the action, oppression and humanity that is RoboCop. We cannot wait to be first in line for this new motion picture event!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Four anthology-style one-shots exploring the world of the new film, brought to you by some of the freshest voices in the industry — Joe Harris (GREAT PACIFIC), Frank Barbiere (FIVE GHOSTS), Ed Brisson (SHELTERED), and Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS).
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Alex Murphy was the first successful attempt at creating a man in the machine. But before he could rise, many had to fall.
Through the eyes of the failed test subjects on the path to making a successful integration between man and machine, Dr. Norton is forced to ask whether the sacrifice of a few is truly the path towards salvation. His morality must come head to head with Sellars’ vision.
