RoboCop is already appearing in comics with The Terminator, but Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new RoboCop series that arrives in stores in December.

Based on the cult classic film of the same name, Dynamite’s RoboCop: Road Trip series combines director Paul Verhoeven’s original world of a futuristic dystopian Detroit with a larger, overarching conspiracy theory (in the spirit of All the President’s Men) and high action, extreme violence and satire.

“Road Trip is our first chance to take a look at Robocop’s twisted version of America outside the confines of Old Detroit,” says series writer Rob Williams in a prepared statement. “But OCP isn’t going to just let Murphy and what’s left of the Old Detroit Police Department run off to get help. An entirely new deadly robot prototype is on their tail. And with Murphy’s mind fracturing following the death of his partner, Lewis, Road Trip has a somewhat psychedelic double meaning. This is Robocop’s world as you’ve never seen it before.”

Done right, the RoboCop universe can be a playground for some awesome stories.
