When I got done with this issue, I looked at the indicia to make sure I was remembering correctly and there really are four whole issues left. I’m a little sad it isn’t five, because this issue is phenomenal.
Grant’s script, except some of the stuff with the corporate guys, mostly keeps out of artist Öztekin’s way. Not in a bad way, like Grant is lazy–he isn’t. He writes some funny stuff for the little kid, who was weak last time but is the perfect sidekick for Robocoo this issue. I just mean Grant lets Öztekin go wild.
Whether it’s a car chase or a dialogue sequence in the diner with Robocop’s friends, Öztekin always makes the right move. There are maybe three perfect panels in the car chase; fantastic.
And the Robocop repair sequence is wonderful. Öztekin’s style, by being so wrong for Robocop, is perfect for it.
