Robocop 20 (October 1991)

Who is Andrew Wildman and why has he ruined my Robocop? Regardless of Sullivan relatively slipping, this guy is a joke. His faces are pure amateur. I suppose his figures are a little better.

This issue is a waste of time, but kind of shouldn’t be. It’s a continuation of the previous one–Robocop’s wife and child have been kidnapped, Lewis wants to tell him “how she feels”–but there’s nothing but recaps of those items. It’s all a bridge, but it’s a bridge with its own events going on.

There’s some group of rich guys plotting murders or something. It’s not really important. What’s important is Robocop turning off the robot parts and trying it human.

Under a better writer, it’d be a fantastic issue, because the things Furman’s talking about are interesting, the things he’s investigating.

He’s just not a writer who can make it work in Robocop.
