Robocop: Mortal Coils 1 (September 1993)

How to start… maybe licensing Robocop 3 instead of Robocop is a bad idea. I mean, it’s not like The Terminator, where licensing got all split up, sequel after sequel. Dark Horse could have gotten Robocop and not had to do sequels to Robocop 3, right?

This issue is Robocop in Denver. It’s kind of like Passenger 57 is Die Hard on an airplane. No, it’s not. Look at how hard I’m trying to figure out how to talk about this tripe.

Denver is apparently worse off than Detroit, which is stupid and doesn’t fit into the movie mythology–it’s another Judge Dredd lift, or maybe a Road Warrior one. I don’t know. I don’t care. It’s amazing how lifeless licensed properties got for Dark Horse just a few years after they revolutionized the genre with Aliens.

Mortal Coils is going to be awful; banal and inane. Three more issues….
