Robocop: Wild Child (2005) #1


What can I possibly say about this comic book? This partial comic book (it only runs twelve or thirteen pages, though Avatar charge three bucks for it). It barely features Robocop and does so in what I assume was going to be the Avatar Robocop continuity, which never got off the ground (the company, OCP, is in ruins, the cops are on strike–Robocop and Lewis are the only two working cops).

It’s a deep dark secret from the past coming into the present story, only the exact nature of the secret is never clear. A relative of Lewis’s returns to wreck havoc on Detroit and it’s up to Lewis and Robocop to stop her. Without killing her because she might be Lewis’s sister or her cousin or her neighbor’s second cousin’s mailman’s sister’s step-child.

I’m sure Grant was being intentionally opaque, but it’s really awful. The whole thing.
