BOOM! Studios today announced ROBOCOP: CITIZENS ARREST, an all-new comic book series premiering in April 2018. Visionary writer Brian Wood (DMZ, Briggs Land) and fan-favorite artist Jorge Coelho (Venom) present a chilling view of the future where justice is crowdsourced, set 30 years after the events of the landmark original RoboCop film.

In the decades since the RoboCop program first began, corporations have taken over public services and the government—and law enforcement is the biggest private contract of all. Traditional police forces no longer exist as all citizens are encouraged—and rewarded—to spy on their neighbors.

There is only one authority on the streets: ROBOCOP.

“RoboCop remains a favorite film of mine, and was an early influence on the type of stories I sought out to read and watch, and eventually to create on my own,” said Wood. “It’s an honor to write this series, to write Alex Murphy, and to show everyone how much the core themes of RoboCop – police brutality, union busting, media manipulation, privatization of law enforcement and the marginalization of poor people – are, incredibly, just as relevant now as they were in the 80’s.”

“Some movies transcend cinema,” said Jorge Coelho. “As classics they hold that enigmatic mix of timing and ideas that, somehow, make them endure the test of time – for me, RoboCop is one of them. I can still see myself as that big eyed kid devouring everything about the concept decades before I knew what dystopia is, it made me a fan of science fiction and social commentary. Strong, unapologetic characters living in a world close enough to ours, fantastic enough to capture our imagination and keep its spell alive. Citizens Arrest will add new characters and a vision in comic form that will treat readers and lifetime fans with the love and respect this cinema classic deserves”

ROBOCOP: CITIZENS ARREST #1 features a main cover by Nimit Malavia (Fables), along with variants by David Rubin (Black Hammer) and Jim Towe (Youngblood).

“The best stories not only entertain but also force us to reflect on today’s world and ask the tough questions – a hallmark of Brian Wood’s powerful work,” said Sierra Hahn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Bringing Brian’s unflinching writing together with the gritty artwork of Jorge Coelho, ROBOCOP: CITIZENS ARREST is perfect for anyone new to the franchise and a special treat for longtime fans.”

“More than ever, societal norms are being challenged and we’re asking what kind of future we’re creating – and ROBOCOP: CITIZENS ARREST is about what happens when we abdicate that responsibility,” explained Eric Harburn, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “This is a love letter to the socio-political prescience of the original RoboCop film, but also a story that stands on its own, inspired by modern day events and concerns.”

ROBOCOP: CITIZENS ARREST #1 is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Planet of the Apes, Big Trouble in Little China, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.

Print copies of ROBOCOP: CITIZENS ARREST #1 will be available for sale in April 2018 at local comic book shops (use to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

#TidePodChallenge Calm down, everybody. Very, very, very few teens are trying to eat Tide Pods.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that every person under the age of 25 now lives off a diet of Tide Pods.

Tide Pods

If you’ve gone online recently, you’ve heard of the Tide Pods meme, the challenge, and the widespread outrage the little detergent capsules have caused. Though the craze may have roots in a 2015 Onion piece, a lot of people over the past few months agree that the poisonous and colorful little packets look pretty appetizing.

Some people have actually bitten into them.

And now we have lots of local news outlets and every major news network covering Tide Pods as the Next Big Threat™ to teens.

But let’s all take a deep breath. The extremely small number of people who have actually taken the #TidePodChallenge does not in any way justify the real hysteria that has swirled around America.
