Format: Hardcover
The four-issue mini-series originally published in 1992 is reprinted in 2014 by Dark Horse Comics as Robocop vs. Terminator. This is a spectacular action-adventure comic-book, by two of the comics industry’s top creative talents at the time this was originally published. In this particular time-line, Robo-cop is the spark that ignites the rise of the machines, and we have the usual plot-opener with a human sent back just as the machines achieve final victory to kill Robo-Cop. She is pursued by some terminators in a last-gasp attempt to stave off the destruction of their time-line, and we end up with a see-saw future as first one and then another future is established, before the final victory of the machines. However, during the course of the story, Robo-Cop slowly acquires a bit more of his humanity, and he sneaks a ghost into the machine, for one final turn of the merry-go-round…

This is primarily a big shooting match, with swarms of machines busy slaughtering humans in the present and the future. However, the artwork is superbly spectacular, and the story merges the two worlds perfectly with each other. The influence of Jack Kirby on Walt Simonson’s art is very noticeable in this story, without detracting from Walt’s own style. He and John Byrne really did continue Jack’s comic-art tradition.

THE SPOILER ZONE
Issue #1 opens with a human soldier penetrating a machine facility and tracing the start of the timeline leading to the final battle between humans and machines that is raging outside. It begins with a cop named Alex Murphy, whose mind became merged with Skynet, and triggered the eventual catastrophe.

robotic humanoid vs. humanoid robot 6 Dec 2014
By Babytoxie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
How many truly worthwhile crossovers in comics can you name? Ones where the premise didn't seem forced, and better yet, it actually made sense? I can think of maybe three, with Frank Miller & Walt Simonson's ROBOCOP VERSUS THE TERMINATOR being one of them. Originally published by Dark Horse in 1992 (when the publisher had both licenses), this 4-issue miniseries merged two great cinematic properties of the `80s. I use the word "merge" in the strongest sense, for by the end of this story, the two could almost be considered dependent upon each other. It's a daring step for a crossover to take, even when they are usually considered to take place outside of standard continuity. As a result, this story made a big impression on me when I read it 22 years ago, and even though I didn't keep my original issues, I've always regarded it highly. Thankfully, Dark Horse and Boom! Studios have now put ROBOCOP VERSUS THE TERMINATOR back in print, in hardcover. As The Terminator is involved, the story features a lot of time travel; in fact, it's essentially a battle across time, as Flo, a human from the future, comes to modern Detroit to destroy Robocop/Alex Murphy, while the Terminators are actually trying to protect him! When the Terminators' motive is revealed, Murphy sides with Flo, resulting in the two groups constantly trying to outwit each other across hundreds of years.

Any writer who attempts to tackle a time travel story gets a salute from me, as they are some of the most difficult to write. Miller handles the task admirably, even though the logistics become somewhat laughable at times. The timestream in this story is completely linear, so any changes to the past directly affect the future; however, it's interesting to see that those changes don't immediately take effect, but rather slowly force their way into the future, where everyone can observe them occurring.

As for Simonson's artwork, what needs to be said? The man was a master of his craft long before he tackled this miniseries, and he's obviously up to the task of capturing the power of the headliners. His trademark flourishes are on display: energy lines are all over the pages, and the sound effects jump out at you. One particularly notable image is a two-page spread of a Terminator fleet dispersing to the stars - it's both impressive and chilling. The coloring is excellent, making these over-20-year-old pages look brand-new.

Also included are character sketches, cover roughs, and the art for some character cut-outs that were included in the original issues. I normally don't go for hardcovers, but this edition of ROBOCOP VERSUS THE TERMINATOR is a must-have for me.
Fantastic 9 Sep 2014

Format: Hardcover
I was surprised by how good this was. I have read very little of Frank Miller apart from The dark Knight Returns and Batman Year One. This was really really good.Great book I read it all in one day. My eyes were stuck to the pages and I couldnt put it down. I was shocked by how well Miller suited this story. Just brilliant. I would totally recommend.

RoboCop vs The Terminator hardback book was a great read. 27 July 2014
By kenshiro152 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a great read I love how Frank Miller tells the story and stays true to both franchises. With all the intense action, technology and cyborg mechanics going on in this book, its the human story in there that keeps you glued to its pages. I love the constant struggle between the humans and the machines and how Alex Murphy (RoboCop) battles with his own programming to get a grasped on the chaos that surrounds him. I recommend this to any RoboCop or Terminator fan. 5 stars all the way.

A fun read 1 Oct 2014
By F. Olalde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This trade collects issues 1-4 of the comic released in the early nineties. The story is a terrific interweaving of two popular film franchise properties and integrates the stories of each series seamlessly.

The art is top notch.

The read is highly entertaining but reads extremely fast.

Really fun 2 Sep 2014
By A. Bourns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The best cross over that sadly didn't make it to film. It does a good job blending the themes and tones of both franchises. The only injustice is you don't see an Arnold Schwarzenegger inspired T-800 but you do see one in the video game based on this book which also isn't bad.
