Robocop: Last Stand 4 (November 2013)

Robocop 04 preview Page 1When 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.


Writer, Steven Grant; artist, Korkut Öztekin; colorist, Michael Garland; letterer, Ryan Ferrier; editors, Alex Galer and Eric Harburn; publisher, Boom! Studios.
