    Horror Talk - James Ferguson May 16, 2018

    RoboCop: Citizens Arrest is an absolutely chilling look at our future. What makes it even more disturbing is how close to reality it is. If someone told me this was something the Trump administration was working on, I wouldn't be that surprised. This is emphasized by the TV hosts shown throughout the comic that are very reminiscent of those on Fox News, albeit taken to an extreme. Although, again, if I saw a clip of it from real life, it wouldn't be that hard to believe. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 9, 2018

    A good issue that increases the tension and ramps up the action with some prescient socio-political commentary. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 12, 2018

    Robocop: Citizens Arrest #2 doesnt flow as well as the first issue, but its still enjoyable and compelling. Its satire never dulls, and the artwork of Coelho and Garbark holds steady throughout the read. As such, this one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jonathan O'Neal May 14, 2018

    While readers might be clamoring for RoboCop to start kicking some OCP ass, Wood and Company are content to play a longer narrative game, perhaps showing how Murphy's brand of heroism must change to be effective. Read Full Review

    With an iconic quote, the stage is set for a classic Robocop vs OCP confrontation next time out. I really hope that issue #3 can get the juices flowing, because this series desperately needs drama, tension, and maybe even a little action? Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Hildebrand May 8, 2018

    I am going to hold on for at least one more issue. Robocop is gearing up for a comeback tour, so I am hoping for the action to pick up. If you are a long time Robocop fan like me, you are more than likely going to have the same hang ups that I have. I can't really recommend this story so far. I put that decision in your hands.

    I don't know what sort of comic Citizen's Arrest wants to be -- and I don't think Citizen's Arrest does either. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 9, 2018

    When a movie comic book adaptation decides to pull lines from the original movie for cheap pops, that's usually when I call it good on the series. Mostly because it just shows that there's nothing original left for the story. Movies used to be wonderful at pulling throwback lines, but anymore it's just an eye-rolling moment in any story. This issue ends on one such line, and it's just stupid sounding. The context is different, it's being used as a rebuttal but it doesn't quite work, and it's just not even the best RoboCop line. Which strangely sums up this entire issue and series. Not the best. Read Full Review

    I'm enjoying the slowish ramp up in tension. We are gearing up for a epic ride, but I feel many of the reviewers, just want cheap thrills and action. I personally really enjoy learning about the world and these supporting characters, who will be helping Robocop along the way. This is a comic that is building a story, not just a soulless action ride.

    The story focuses more on the social effects of libertarian capitalism run amok and less so on Robocop shooting people, but I think we're ramping up to that now, based on the cliffhanger. I personally enjoy this approach, it's a bit more modern and unique, bringing something new to the franchise while staying true to its roots. Extra points for the hilarious parody of Fox & Friends.
