RoboCop: Citizens Arrest is a new comic book mini-series from BOOM! Studios. Written by Brian Wood, and with art by Jorge Coelho the story is set 30 years after the events of 1987’s RoboCop movie.

In the decades since the RoboCop program first began, corporations have taken over public services and the government—and law enforcement is the biggest private contract of all. Traditional police forces no longer exist as all citizens are encouraged—and rewarded—to spy on their neighbors.

There is only one authority on the streets: ROBOCOP.

“RoboCop remains a favourite film of mine, and was an early influence on the type of stories I sought out to read and watch, and eventually to create on my own,” said Wood. “It’s an honor to write this series, to write Alex Murphy, and to show everyone how much the core themes of RoboCop – police brutality, union busting, media manipulation, privatization of law enforcement and the marginalization of poor people – are, incredibly, just as relevant now as they were in the 80’s.”

“Some movies transcend cinema,” said Jorge Coelho. “As classics they hold that enigmatic mix of timing and ideas that, somehow, make them endure the test of time – for me, RoboCop is one of them. I can still see myself as that big eyed kid devouring everything about the concept decades before I knew what dystopia is, it made me a fan of science fiction and social commentary. Strong, unapologetic characters living in a world close enough to ours, fantastic enough to capture our imagination and keep its spell alive. Citizens Arrest will add new characters and a vision in comic form that will treat readers and lifetime fans with the love and respect this cinema classic deserves”

ROBOCOP: CITIZENS ARREST #1 features a main cover by Nimit Malavia (Fables), along with variants by David Rubin (Black Hammer) and Jim Towe (Youngblood).

RoboCop: Citizens Arrest is scheduled to launch in April 2018.
