Frank Miller's RobocopRobocop was one of the truly great bits of movie and pop culture magic from the s and Frank Miller wanted to deliver a masterpiece with his original movie script but Hollywood massively edited his work In full on a. Being uite the fan of 1980s dystopian science fiction as well as having a morbid curiosity about what ifs of show business I eventually had to read this adaptation of comics legend Frank Miller's unfilmed script for Robocop 2 It also helped that I had diligently read the columns for Comic Book Resources done by the actual writer of the volume one Steven Grant about the history of the comics industry in his own experience starting in the 1970s and Grant's musings about how they reflected the broader society around itTo be honest it's something of a half truth to say that Frank Miller's Robocop 2 script went unfilmed Rather it looks like Orion Pictures split the script into two halves The storyline about Omni Consumer Products burdening Robocop with a bunch of new directives to make him obedient and preparing a new improved Robocop with a controllable personality and a brain from a psychotic mass murderer became Robocop 2 The other half of the plot about OCP bringing in private mercenaries as scabs during the police strike apparently ended up as the premise of Robocop 3 which I have yet to see as it's supposedly not very goodFrankly reading this I get the impression that Orion were right to intervene even if the result still wasn't enough to fill Paul Verhoeven's biggest set of shoes The main problem I had with the finished film was that it threw around too many subplots and new ideas without doing much to resolve them and this comic which is as close to Miller's original version as possible is even worse on that count The half baked subplot about Robocop trying to re unite with his estranged family who only remember him as Patrolman Alex Murphy Deceased gets even less time here Then there's ones I mentioned above and a bunch of new ones like OCP trying to frame Robocop for murder which is left hanging and unresolved I guess clearing his name was what Miller hoped would be the focus for Robocop 3Maybe it's that Frank Miller plays things a lot straighter than either Verhoeven or the resulting seuel with less outright political satire and polemical exaggeration for its own sake Miller's own humour here I find a step down already for what he was doing in The Dark Knight Returns The truly deranged and over the top parts aren't anywhere as memorable either like here it's one of the mercenaries rather than the rather entertaining messianic wannabe drug lord played by Tom Noonan if you think that's an unrealistic concept for a character google Adolfo Costanzo who becomes the brain in Robocop 2 before the evil sexy psychiatrist lady overseeing the project installs her own personality in the titular combat cyborg here she's called Margaret Love but the film renamed her to Juliette FaxxWhich reminds me Miller's abundant psychological issues with women which become and on display the longer his career proceeds is a long running joke in the comic book fan subculture and they are a source of even unintentional humour here which actually provide laughs than the parts that were supposed to be funny There's first the evil psychiatrist lady being even demonized and oversexualized at the same time than in the film then there's how Anne Lewis ends up with half her clothing torn off in pretty much every major action scene she's inIt's not a total waste There is some interesting worldbuilding about the universe of the Robocop setting with details about what its future society looks like which means the setting is fleshed out and a handful of pretty inventive action scenes that I wager were just too expensive as written to film though the climactic duel between Robocop and his supposed replacement isn't as memorable as that in the movie either which I guess is where most of the budget wentOf course it should be mentioned that I find Frank Miller's output pretty hit and miss and I read him as much for his uniue expressionistic and stark art style which elevates often mediocre storylines to something interesting in terms of visual storytelling Maybe I'd have liked this if Miller had illustrated this himself The art here is done by a bloke named Juan José Ryp whose drawing might be technically competent but lacks much in the way of personality almost the polar opposite of Frank Miller's ownNow a comic book version of William Gibson's Alien 3 that I'd like to read

D robotic mayhem never made it to the screen but every last bit is finally unleashed in this series With seuential adaptation from Steven Grant and art by superstar Juan Jose Ryp this sci fi epic is not to be misse. By the end of the 1980s Frank Miller reigned as one of the most respected creators within comics Not surprisingly given the similarities between the mediums he soon received opportunities to work in filmMiller's big opportunity arrived with Robocop 2 The first Robocop movie a low budget sf actioneer directed by the then virtually unknown Paul Verhoeven proved wildly popular Due to a writer's strike the studio contacted Miller fresh from his success of Batman The Dark Knight Returns and hired him to write the seuel His screenplay was considered unfilmable and Miller removed from the project Only pieces survived through the numerous re writes and into the universally disliked movie The original screenplay attained an almost urban legend status In the early 2000s Avatar Press publisher William Christensen who owned a copy contacted Miller about a comic adaptation Originally published as the nine issue mini series Frank Miller's Robocop from Avatar 2003 2006 Boom Studios collects the entire story as Robocop Volume 1Since Miller lacked the time to write or draw the comic veteran writer Steven Grant and artist Juan José Ryp best known for Alan Moore's Another Suburban Romance oversaw the project Miller and Grant successfully create an intriguing tale of despair and loss that further humanizes our hero Murphy only to tragically strip away at his essence At times beautiful Ryp's cluttered and chaotic art degrades the tale often making seuences unreadable While the flawed über violent story only shallowly touches on the important issues of law enforcement drug use the poor and the societal role of corporations it is by no means unfilmable Disappointingly Robocop Volume 1 offers no introduction or text pieces explaining the story's interesting origins
