Would you prefer to pretend that the RoboCop remake never happened? You’re not alone if so – the gang at BOOM! Studios, who recently started a sequel series to Big Trouble in Little China, are continuing the ’80s love by picking up yet another classic franchise of the decade…and in this case, ignoring all the parts of it that they don’t like *coughFRANKMILLERcough*

Dive into the harsh world of Old Detroit with RoboCop and his partner, Anne Lewis, following the events of the original film. A deadly and charismatic criminal, Killian, is released from jail. He went into the slammer before RoboCop hit the streets, and now he wants to take out the biggest cop in the city. When OCP wants to take guns off the street, Killian sees it as his opportunity to take on the former Alex Murphy!

ROBOCOP #1 arrives in comic shops on July 2nd. Check out the kick-ass variant covers below…
