WHY WE LOVE IT: With the release of RoboCop, a re-of the all-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-one-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: After a series of successful campaigns that cripple a portion of Detroit's criminal activities, RoboCop's system inexplicably goes down. While RoboCop's consciousness remains, his control is gone.

    So, while there seems to be a rising wave of negativity directed towards the upcoming movie (this isnt the RoboCop I know and love!), this comic actually went a long way in reassuring me about the new films approach. Yes, some things have been changed, and yes, this isnt simply a shot-for-shot remake of the original, but based on Moreci and Coplands depiction on the new (and improved?) RoboCop franchise, I think I might actually give the film the benefit of the doubt. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Feb 12, 2014

    Robocop:Hominem Ex Machinafeels like an alternate take or directors cut of a segment of the film that was not in the original. The themes and the emotional problems that Murphy has to deal with in his new robotic life in the source material are handled similarly here, but with a slightly different story. While it feels a little odd to jump into the middle of a film and add an extra 22 pages, its fun to return to the world of Robocop for a bit, and thankfully the task has been given to capable hands.

    But lets just pretend that you are a government and authority loving individual who believes that our entire civilisation will collapse if we don't have corporate men and women in uniforms looking after us. What would you get from this comic if you were that sort of person? A largely formulaic book where the Policeman gets hurt then comes back to beat up the criminals, the end. If that sounds like fun, then jump on board. As for me, I plan on chucking this one in the bin, picking up my copy of Frank Miller's Robocop Last Stand and reading Robocop as he's supposed to be written and portrayed. Read Full Review
