BOOM! Studios released their solicitations for February recently, including four tie-ins to the upcoming ROBOCOP remake. I’ve written one of the stories as first detailed at Nerdist.
Author Joe Harris and artist Piotr Kowalski bring us Robocop: To Live and Die in Detroit, a tale that sees RoboCop proving to be too good at his job and the corporate overlords not being too happy about it. Can OCP make him fall in line with the way things work?

WHY WE LOVE IT: With the release of RoboCop, a re-imagining of the all-time classic, fans of the new and old will be immersed in the action, oppression and humanity that is RoboCop. We cannot wait to be first in line for this new motion picture event!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Four anthology-style one-shots exploring the world of the new film, brought to you by some of the freshest voices in the industry — Joe Harris (GREAT PACIFIC), Frank Barbiere (FIVE GHOSTS), Ed Brisson (SHELTERED), and Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS).
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: RoboCop is too good at his job. While the people love him, his ability to find and remove corruption puts fear into the corporate heads and government leaders.
With OCP at the wheel, they will do their best to steer him away from the powerful corrupt leaders, and keep him on the lower-level criminals. But some crimes cannot go unpunished.
