There's no end to the brutality.

Mac Brookman Apr 3rd, 2008 02:19 PM

Horrible, just horrible. Thanks Protoclown for taking another one for the team.

Plus Miller couldn't possibly hate the second movie that much, he had a fricking cameo in it as a drug lab chemist.

Magic Flyin' Lemur Apr 3rd, 2008 02:48 PM

J..Jesus fucking Christ. I never thought I'd see RoboCop pimp-slap someone. Just... Jesus.

What the fuck?!?!

This is way more insane than "The Goddamned Batman" can ever be.

The bit about the President selling suppositories, especially blew my mind.

Of course, ANYTHING Robocop is usually kinda dumb. That's what makes the movies fun. In fact, I liked Robocop 2, because it was so fucked up! But, this is just too stupid.

Protoclown, I thank you, for reading this horrible comic, so that none of us have to.

BakaGaijin Apr 3rd, 2008 04:51 PM

I liked the movie. It had all sorts of bang bang shoot-em up violence and gore. It wasn't art, but it was good and graphic. Hell, it was even better than Miller's ***BANG!*** uhghghh arm gone & cant type...

Nick Apr 3rd, 2008 08:01 PM

I think I officially hate Robocop now.

Coryjonc Apr 3rd, 2008 08:45 PM

Sin City is genius though.

Purple Man Apr 3rd, 2008 08:55 PM

I don't remember Nancy Allen's boobies being that impressive in the movies. Just tryin' to find a positive.

Roggs Apr 3rd, 2008 09:24 PM

Ho-ly. I feel like just reading this has caused me to forget important things.

Still, great piece, Protoclown. TftL is my favorite column on this site; always genius. (And I don't even read comics.)

Jonny#5 Apr 3rd, 2008 11:34 PM

You poor bastard. How you managed to stay sane enough to type this out coherently is well beyond me. I salute your mental endurance and in honor of it, I vow to never touch the pages of anything bearing the words "by Frank Miller". BTW, does anyone know why Miller has such a hard-on for Spartans?

Colonel Flagg Apr 4th, 2008 12:07 AM

Could this comic have been inspired by the "Ultimate Warrior"?

Seriously effed up scheiss.

Dungeonbrownies Apr 4th, 2008 01:45 AM

its like tons of grit + the film + w/e masturbation materials kids w/o internet could get their hands on all into a blender together.

atleast itd make more sense than the film i did see.
kinda, i think?

gyah, so confusing.

Julio Apr 4th, 2008 01:56 AM

Ah, I always suspected that girl Lewis was hiding something... Underneath her uniform!

Julio Apr 4th, 2008 02:01 AM

By the way, is it me or it just looks like the cover features RoboCop showing a huge eyeball through his visor?

Drunken_Lemur408 Apr 4th, 2008 02:21 AM

Proto, is there any chance you will look into Robocop Vs. Terminator? Br.Boogie already looked at the game, and it's sure to have even more Frank Miller insanity.

Doctor_Who Apr 4th, 2008 03:05 AM

I've read the comic and seen the movie, and let me tell you - while the film is no gem it is a hundred times better than this. At least you could tell what was going on more than half the time.

Jaimas Apr 4th, 2008 04:11 AM

*Brain Falls Out*
Jaimas' Brain: Fuck this shit, you're on your own, man.

Ashmodai Apr 4th, 2008 10:14 AM

Frank Miller is bat-shit insane.

Redem Apr 4th, 2008 11:18 AM

Well maybe we should find Frank Miller Screenplay in order to find what percentage of it is in the comic

For some reason, I kinda like the movie robocop 2 but then it have been a while since I saw it

Kinda funny that for a guy that miss his wife he kiss Lewis at the end

MallardMan Apr 4th, 2008 01:07 PM

I had to register just because of this article. Because I read this comic. And it hurt me. A lot. At the time, All-Star Batman and Superman hadn't come out, and I had convinced myself that maybe Dark Knight Strikes Again was a fluke. I hadn't read that much Frank Miller, but I'd read "Daredevil: Born Again", "Batman: Year One", and "Dark Knight Returns". This book was my road to recovery. Fuck you, Frank Miller. You should stop writing things, and everyone knows you're going to ruin "The Spirit".

The one saving grace for these books was that I didn't wind up paying for them. I don't like it when Frank Miller's angry "women are either hookers or nothing else, god why can't all boobs be covered in blood" semen gets on my money.

MallardMan Apr 4th, 2008 01:08 PM

Batman and Robin. Crap. I blame Jeff Loeb.

Butters Apr 4th, 2008 01:15 PM

Wow. Completely insane, and that art is AWFUL.

Those "gritty" gore scenes actually make me dizzy.

Yaanu Apr 4th, 2008 06:26 PM

Looking at the art, it reminds me of some of the art in the movie parodies they do in MAD Magazine. If I had a name, I'd spill it here, but alas, my old 2003 MAD issues are in my closet, probably without their covers.

Lord Forte Apr 4th, 2008 08:22 PM

I actually loved the Robocop 2 movie. When I watched it first time as a kid, I was horrified by some scenes, but at the same time loved every second of the movie.
But this comic seems awfuly bad and I don't even want to touch it.
Good review mr. Protoclown.

Ancient Echo Apr 5th, 2008 02:26 AM

The only thing I can remember as bad as that is Jar Jar Banx.

neoboman Apr 5th, 2008 02:51 AM

I love Robocop 2, it's so over the top and, especially at the time, really dark and funny.

mew barios Apr 5th, 2008 10:28 AM

i guess the random electricution panel could've been drawn already as a reference to the part in the movie when he grabs electrical wiring to wipe out the new directives, cuz it looks a lot like that. and then they realized that part wasnt going to be in this comic and.. no i give up

Kilgore Cod Apr 5th, 2008 09:31 PM

I'm a huge fan of the first movie but never cared for the sequel. I had been hearing for years how different the finished movie was from Miller's screenplay and was very interested when I found out there was a comic book made from that screenplay. Once again I-Mockery has saved me money!

Count Mek Apr 5th, 2008 10:01 PM

Holy crap that was terrible, I actaully feel sorry for that lady cop whose clothes seemed to be destroyed by air.
Good article though.

Yaanu Apr 6th, 2008 12:55 PM

Also, I'm pretty sure Lewis' boobs grow a few sizes at the end of the comic.

Pretzel Apr 6th, 2008 04:03 PM

Okay, I thought I was the only one who noticed that, Yaanu! I feel better.

NathanTZ Apr 6th, 2008 06:38 PM

The Robo-Pimpslap will be in my mind til the day I die now, as well as on my picture screensaver. Thanks Protoclown.

g_tonttu Apr 8th, 2008 04:26 AM

Ouch my brain hurts...Proto you poor man, one would not wish even the worst of enemies the torment of actually having to read the pile of crap that is Robocop2.

Crazy Frank...one can but wonder what he will come up with next.

xyzzy929 Aug 16th, 2008 01:41 AM

Frank Miller's Robocop: It may not be accurate storywise, but it will blow your fucking mind!

srubia Nov 22nd, 2011 01:00 PM

I signed up just to post this, BTW.... stumbled across this site while looking up FM's Robocop and have loved most every other article in the series, hope you do some more soon.

I just watched "Robocop 2", and it wasn't as bad as I remembered. Aside from the main whole in the plot -- how anyone in their right mind would think the major drug kingpin for the city would make a good test subject is beyond me -- I think it holds up pretty good, maintaining some of the biting satire from the first while delivering action that is a step up from the previous installment. A number of times while watching this movie and smiling at some of the jabs at corporate America (or just generally the concept of privatizing the police force), I thought to myself "I wonder just how much of Frank Miller's script made it into the movie?" I assumed the high-minded ideas were his.... and how WRONG I was in that assumption. How brutally stupid in both concept and execution. I thought for sure the drug-kingpin-as-Robocop-2 was the height of ridiculousness, but then I come across the corporate chick taking over the robot body? Too much, waaaayyy too much. I had the same problem with the artwork you had, though it makes the book look more fun than it actually is. Wow, I hate myself for reading this.... at least I downloaded it rather than go out and BUY the damn thing!

Fathom Zero Nov 23rd, 2011 05:05 AM

It just occurred to me that Frank Miller makes the ugliest stuff ever. Jesus, look at that. That's awful.
