Robocop statue discussion inspires reading of “Prime Suspect”
With the recent discussion of a possible RoboCop statue in Detroit being in the news, I was inspired to dig out the 1992 series “RoboCop: Prime Suspect” from Dark Horse Comics.
“Prime Suspect” was a four-issue miniseries written by John Arcudi with art by John Paul Leon and Jeff Albrecht. In the series, a prominent anti-RoboCop advocate is gunned down, and ballistics appear to match RoboCop’s gun. Since RoboCop is supposed to be the only one who can handle his gun, he becomes the “Prime Suspect.”
There’s a trial, and shady dealings and intrigue and of course big shootouts with huge weapons.
John Paul Leon, whose style I remembered being closer to Mike Mignola, has a cartoonier style in this series that reminded me a bit of the Pander Bros. The painted covers by Nelson are a different style than the interiors, but are very cool.
