OCP's massive overhaul on gun control has left the city of Old Detroit in the midst of an uprising. With RoboCop and officer Lewis in the middle of a law they cannot support but must uphold, there is no end solution in sight that doesn't paint the streets in the blood of the innocent.

    If you told me Williamson wrote the original "Robocop" film I might be inclined to believe you. There is virtually nothing lost in translation from the screen to the page. This book is doing it right, and every single other writer attached to a beloved film IP should take note. Williamson and Magno capture everything you love about Officer Alex Murphy from his conflict with his own humanity, iconic dialogue, to the wanton violence. Read Full Review

    What are you waiting for? Go get this. I understand being hesitant to pick up a title based off of a movie that came out before a lot of you were born. Even fans of the original movie will be hesitant and I get that, too. Honestly though, whether you're a fan of the original film, or a fan of a fun comic, this one is definitely for you.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Aug 6, 2014

    If you want a true dose of RoboCop goodness, BOOM! Studios' new volume is what you need to check out. This second issue offers a commendable dose of buildup as we get a better look at the villain's plans and still chime in on our two leads. The visuals continue to feel like a perfect fit for this bleak city and, as expected, there's some exhilarating action thrown in the mix, too. All in all, I can't recommend this enough to fans of the first RoboCop movie. It feels like an organic continuation of the classic movie and is swiftly establishing a premise that has a lot of potential to give us a better look at RoboCop's limits. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew Stevens Aug 5, 2014

    In conclusion, RoboCop #2 only slightly misses out on the 4/5 rating I gave #1. The slight drop in art quality and varying success of the writing means I cant be quite as glowing as I was last month, but I will still definitely recommend this comic to fans and non-fans alike. You will definitely get a lot out of this comic if youre a RoboCop fan. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Aug 11, 2014

    When most people see a RoboCop comic book on the shelf, that sense of immediate recognition takes place, and is usually followed by memories of previous comic incarnations, leading to the buyer passing on the product. I really hope that Williamson and company can keep the established tone consistent because it will go a long way in making this a series that stands out. Read Full Review
