RoboPimp :
I finally got around to buying it online and while it was an interesting tale it felt incomplete. I think John Arcudi planned on continuing the story, which was already a continuation of Prime Directives, but never got the chance to. The mystery is left unresolved. This would have been a great start for an ongoing series as I do think Arduci's take on Robo as a character is great. I also would have liked to see more about the stolen ED-209's that are popping up on the streets. While it looks like Dark Horse cut Robo off a little too soon, he did have a good run there for sure.


That's well said, Pimp. Much as I like Roulette I do think feel like it was just the start of a saga that never got to soar on.. I would have liked to see it continue forward into something more, too. Oh well.

As for the art, I think Roulette has some of the better stuff in the DH run.. It's not excellent but it works well and doesn't take too many liberties. Balanced, like much of DH's stuff, as said.

Thats It Buster! :

Does anyone know how this series is perceived by Terminator fans? I cant imagine they really enjoyed having another character from a different franchise destroy theirs.


You know, Im a huge Terminator fan as well, but Ive never heard any fan mentioning it ever. Even Jim Cameron's fansite that has some connection to him doesnt list it in their Terminator comics (http://www.jamescamerononline.com/T1printed.htm), then again, they didnt list any other crossovers either.

I've always thought the Dark Horse comics were the only ones where Murphy was given sufficient respect and suitable story lines from people who had an understanding of what makes the character.

Prime Suspect is a fantastic read, as is RvsT. Roulette was cool as was Mortal Coils.

It's a shame the DH collection never came out, as they done other omnibus collections for the likes of Barb Wire, Terminator and Star Wars.

One query about RVsT:

what was the point of going back and killing Robo, considering Cyberdyne Systems were already ahead on Skynet?

NOF :

They quasi-retconned the Terminator timeline/lore with some bullshit about how RoboCop's breakthrough and how he 'works' was the 'missing link' needed to creating the neural net tech to give SkyNet proper operation and ultimately sentience. It's never really elaborated on much.

(Heh I now have a crazy image of a Terminator version of 'failed prototypes', with them uploading prototype SkyNets only to have them decide to kill themselves lol.)

Anyhoo I agree it's a shame they never did a collection for Robo. Always getting the short end when it comes to these things. Bah.

Recently re-read the DH series:

RVsT: Intriguing premise pulled off remarkably well. One of the few 'crossovers' that make sense.

Prime Suspect: Excellent storytelling.

Mortal Coils: A little disappointing. Although the idea of sticking Robo in a different setting is interesting, he comes across as meek (asking if a character is going to dissect him) and the ending is a rewrite of R2.

Roulette: As a standalone story, it's fine. However it was clearly going to lead into a bigger story about the US government weaponising the technology that created Robo for their own purposes which gives the tale a wistful "what if" vibe.
