Wow. Completely insane, and that art is AWFUL.

Those "gritty" gore scenes actually make me dizzy.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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!

Good article though.

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

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

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.

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

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!

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