    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 26, 2018

    Writer Brian Wood's dialogue once again feels like it's ripped right off of Fox News broadcasts. It's chilling when presented in this light, as these white people paint RoboCop and the other residents of the Ruins in such a harsh and menacing light when they're only trying to live their lives. This quality is what makes RoboCop: Citizens Arrest so frightening. While we don't have robot enforcers roaming the streets, the elements are there to do something similar in today's society. This hits in the same way the original RoboCop film did years ago. Read Full Review

I'm not rooting for any side, and I don't find either side makes any sort of a compelling case about being right. The art is spotty, some decent panels but rough, pencil heavy yet “smeary” art actually takes me out of the story at points.  Read Full Review
