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.

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.

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...

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.)

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?

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

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.

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.

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

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.
