Robocop by: JD Hancock

This weekend, Arizona mocks robots, opens a mini-convention center, shoots Star Wars characters, visits Rynaga, and more.

It’s been a crazy week with comic stores closings, Apple CEOs resigning, and me burning through Ready Player One.

But soon, the weekend will be upon us:
