Frank Miller’s Robocop
I just came to read the first issue of the well known cybernetic policeman and his fight against crime and injustice. The story is by Frank Miller, the art by Juan José Ryp and the colors by Nimbus Studios.
The streets are overrun with theft and murder. The only cop still working is the tin man. And in this time, when morals are at the lowest and the media won’t even spread the slightest amount of love and compassion, Robocop does his job with a lot of precision and brutality. Being the only cop on duty, there just isn’t any time for the velvet glove.
The graphic style of this comic is very jiggered and brutal. The pictures seem overloaded at times but that only underlines the chaos that is reigning in the city. The style may seem naive at first, but with the brutal scenes, the advantages of the style become apparent. Enjoy!
