Press Release

Dynamite Entertainment confirmed a new agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures to develop a new original comic book series based on the ROBOCOP franchise.

The franchise launched in 1987 with the feature film ROBOCOP, directed by Paul Verhoeven.  Two additional feature films and multiple television shows followed the cyborg law enforcer as he battled to clean up crime-ridden Detroit.

Known for their faithful yet decidedly modern interpretations of such exciting and venerable properties as Zorro, The Lone Ranger, MGM’s Man with No Name and the just released Buck Rogers, Dynamite will bring their full creative vision to bear on the Robocop franchise through an ongoing comic book series. This series will continue to explore more of the dangers of Detroit, its citizens, and  Officer Murphy’s continued dealings with the scum that stalks the streets — all the while missing his human side.  Read it here first!

The company is currently reviewing creative options, including their writing and art team, but of the franchise, Dynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci said, “What makes ROBOCOP such an interesting canvas is that the series has always explored larger themes including gentrification, the media and human nature.  All while delivering a riveting and visceral experience.”

    I’m surprised that Dark Horse let the Robocop license get away.

    Dark Horse was all like “Your move creep” and Dynamite was all “I’ll but that for a dollar” and Gaumer couldnt think of any more Robocop references
