This week sees one of my favourite series come to an end of an E.R.A (yep, that there is a pun) in Valiant Comics' QUANTUM AND WOODY! #12 while another series (and one I'm very excited about) gets off to a fresh and bloody new start in ROBOCOP #1 from Boom Studios. ROBOCOP #1 is a direct continuation of the 1987's feature film, while readers can jump straight in, I re-watched the movie before reading the comic and found it to add to the overall feel of the book. Lastly, I picked up a copy of OUTCAST #1 by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman (I know, a week late).
Quantum and Woody #12 (of 12???) written by James Asmus, art by Wilfredo Torres
Quantum and Woody took the battle straight to the enemy – the mad-science cabal called Edison’s Radical Acquisitions and their mysterious, monstrous new leader – and the enemy kicked their ass! When these rogue biologists (and roboticists) get their hands (and robo-claws) on their new lab subjects, Quantum and Woody are as good as vivisected! (And, by vivisected, we mean dead.)

If you’ve ever wondered what happens to RoboCop and his partner, Anne Lewis, after the first film, wonder no more. A deadly and charismatic criminal, Killian, is released from jail. He went into the slammer before RoboCop hit the streets. 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!

Kyle Barnes has been plagued by demonic possession all his life and now he needs answers. Unfortunately, what he uncovers along the way could bring about the end of life on Earth as we know it.
