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.

The world’s most popular password is depressingly easy to guess

It’s official: People are dreadful at picking passwords.

The world's most popular password is depressingly easy to guess

The world’s most popular password is the depressingly easy-to-guess 123456, according to a massive analysis of 10 million leaked passwords.

Throughout 2016, we saw numerous major data breaches leaking people’s login details online. Some were new — like the hack of adult dating site AdultFriendFinder — while others, like LinkedIn, were years-old, but the data only recently surfaced online.

In both cases, these breaches have provided researchers with an unparalleled look at the security habits of millions of people — and it’s not pretty.

Apple increases App Store prices by 25% following Brexit vote

Price rises for iOS and Mac users announced in an email to developers, following a 19% fall in the value of the pound

Apple increases App Store prices by 25% following Brexit vote
App Store prices will rise significantly following the depreciation of the pound.

Apple is raising prices on its UK App Store by almost 25% to reflect the sharp depreciation of the pound following June’s vote to leave the European Union.

The new prices enshrine parity between the dollar and the pound, at least for apps on the iOS and Mac app stores. An app that costs $0.99 in the US, and used to cost £0.79, will now cost £0.99.

Six hit shows won’t return until 2018

Six very popular genre shows are sitting out 2017.

Six hit shows won't return until 2018

And that’s rather unusual. Often, shows are like sharks — they keep moving forward or die, producing new content every year lest their talent deals lapse. Plus networks love consistency, where a known show reliably fills a certain slot. But for these six titles, we’re not getting any new episodes until 2018, and all for different reasons:

FX’s Atlanta. The acclaimed freshman drama delivered strong ratings plus picked up two Golden Globe awards this week (for best comedy and best actor for creator Donald Glover). But in a way Atlanta was a victim of its own success. After the show premiered, Glover was cast as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo stand-alone Star Wars movie, which started production this month. Usually, actors are forbidden from taking on any commitments which interfere with their show’s production schedule but FX must have agreed to accommodate Glover’s huge opportunity (wisely too, as appearing in a Star Wars film will only help bring more attention to Atlanta). “It’s an amazing opportunity for him, we try to be as accommodating to the talent as we can,” said FX executive Eric Schrier.

HBO’s Westworld. The breakout sci-fi drama took a couple years to make it to air, so it’s perhaps not surprising it will take awhile for another round. The densely plotted, special-effects-filled series is labor intensive, and showrunner Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy want to have all 10 episodes written before starting filming. So we’re going to have to wait awhile before we find out what “SW” is all about.

FX’s American Crime Story. Another huge freshman title from the fall, American Crime Story riveted with its tale of the O.J. Simpson murder trial, plus swept up some Emmy and Golden Globes. But FX’s follow-up in the anthology series, Katrina, has taken awhile to get underway as the writers have taken some time to figure out the story. “It’s taken us time to get material we’re happy with,” FX CEO John Landgraf said. Plus, FX has another limited series from executive producer Ryan Murphy, Feud: Bette and Joan, coming in March. But FX will more than make up for it in 2018, because there will be two installments of ACS, as the third edition, Versace, will debut within six months of Katrina.

Netflix’s Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones: Netflix now has so many Marvel series that they’re not all airing each year. So while 2017 will have plenty of Netflix-Marvel shows, the first three titles the streaming service launched — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage — are all benched this year. Instead, 2017 will have the limited series The Defenders (which includes characters from all the network’s Marvel shows) and the series premiere of Iron Fist. This year will likely also see the premiere of Daredevil spin-off The Punisher, though no date has been set.

And this doesn’t include certain zombie titles — shows that are off the air, yet not canceled, and are expected to come back at some point. They’re like the walking dead (just not including The Walking Dead). Examples include HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, which is working on a ninth season after five years off the air and could very well return this year; FX’s Louie, which has Louis C.K. taking a break for an indeterminant amount of time; Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, which has the comedian taking a protracted hiatus from making another season; And PBS’ Sherlock, which is airing this year, but isn’t expected next year (and may or may not ever come back).
