Issue by Issue – Robocop (2014) #11

Writer – Joshua Williamson, Dennis Culver
Artist – Amancay Nahuelpan
Colours – Marissa Louise
Letters – Ed Dukeshire

The second to last issue of the series picks up right where the last book left off, with Killian setting a ton of prisoners loose and yet thankfully, the police are there to stop them. It is too bad for them though that they are outnumbered and soon to die unless a miracle of some sort happens. Luckily for them, they get just that in the form of Robocop who arrives on a helicopter, who then jumps into the yard and kills a man in the process by the sheer weight of his body and who then proceeds to give hell. This book is all-out action at its best as Robocop and the police try to stop the riot from hitting the streets, the good guys knowing they need to protect the public from these prisoners at any cost. So it is that blood and guts and more end up splattered everywhere as the inmates get mowed down and it is quite a lot of fun to see as the pace never lets down, the book moving at a mile-a-minute. Joshua Williamson and Dennis Culver do a great job at creating as much fun and excitement as they possibly can and Amancay Nahuelpan who joins them makes it all come to life in the best of ways. After a lot of world-building and fostering this story along over the course of the past ten issues, it is good to see the authors of this book just let it all go and play out like an action movie on the big screen. Despite the terrible odds, the police eventually managed to push back and that is when Robocop finally heads out to confront Killian before any more damage can be done. That being said, Killian is across town at OCP looking to reconnect with his older brother, the man in charge of everything and ultimately, the man who has been making life in Detroit so terrible despite his possibly good intentions to make it otherwise. So it is that Killian is looking to put a final nail in the coffin of this entire enterprise but Robocop manages to catch up despite the obstacles in his path which then leaves the book off on a cliffhanger once again. With one issue to go, this book did everything right in making readers want to come back to find out how it is all going to play out between hero and villain and if it is as good as this issue was, then it will be well worth it.

  1. Great penultimate issue of Rococo. I really enjoyed this series when it was originally released and been so much fun to revisit it here again. The story and art were really good, shame it didn’t; run for longer.
