Robocop (1990) #19


So we finally get Lewis and Robocop about the suck face and it turns out it’s a stupid brainwashing thing? Or, worse, we don’t even find out if it’s a stupid brainwashing thing. It’s never followed up on, instead Furman has Robocop’s human mind battle his computer mind in a scene straight out of Superman III (with some Empire Strikes Back visuals–Luke in Vader’s helmet–thrown in).

It’s Sullivan inking himself again, which runs hot and cold. The art’s nowhere near as strong as when Kim DeMulder inked him on the first ten or twelve issues. It’s okay, but it’s not great like it was. It doesn’t matter much, since Furman’s a boring writer. He’s mildly competent–he knows to have the police sergeant reflect once the brainwashing is over–but there’s nothing particularly striking about it.

Oh, wait. No, he sucks… I forgot all about the super-villainess.

  1. Thanks for the review! Funny story here, Robocop was the only comic book I was ever fired from…because the penciller didn’t like my inks. But I still remember that stuff with great fondness!
