RoboPimp :
I finally got around to buying it online and while it was an interesting tale it felt incomplete. I think John Arcudi planned on continuing the story, which was already a continuation of Prime Directives, but never got the chance to. The mystery is left unresolved. This would have been a great start for an ongoing series as I do think Arduci's take on Robo as a character is great. I also would have liked to see more about the stolen ED-209's that are popping up on the streets. While it looks like Dark Horse cut Robo off a little too soon, he did have a good run there for sure.

That's well said, Pimp. Much as I like Roulette I do think feel like it was just the start of a saga that never got to soar on.. I would have liked to see it continue forward into something more, too. Oh well.

As for the art, I think Roulette has some of the better stuff in the DH run.. It's not excellent but it works well and doesn't take too many liberties. Balanced, like much of DH's stuff, as said.
I don't wanna pay that, PhotoBucket. Now maybe you haven't heard, but I'm the guy in old Archive. So hows about you just shit snow for a year and I'll figure out something else. Sayonara!

Thats It Buster! :

Does anyone know how this series is perceived by Terminator fans? I cant imagine they really enjoyed having another character from a different franchise destroy theirs.

You know, Im a huge Terminator fan as well, but Ive never heard any fan mentioning it ever. Even Jim Cameron's fansite that has some connection to him doesnt list it in their Terminator comics (, then again, they didnt list any other crossovers either.

I've always thought the Dark Horse comics were the only ones where Murphy was given sufficient respect and suitable story lines from people who had an understanding of what makes the character.

Prime Suspect is a fantastic read, as is RvsT. Roulette was cool as was Mortal Coils.
