    1. This was a birthday gift from Joe and Alisha; thanks, guys! :-)Let me start by saying the artwork in this book is amazing. Sean Murphy's influences are pretty detectable; there's some Bill Sienkiewicz in there, some Ashley Wood and even some Frank Miller. This adds up to one heck of a sum. Murphy's work is highly kinetic, highly detailed (in places) and shows that this guy knows how to steer a line. Equally impressive is the colour art by Matt Hollingsworth, which is absolutely breathtaking at t [...]


    2. So when I first started reading this I wasn't sure I'd like it. Semmed like a rip-off of Judge Dredd and I am not a Judge Dredd fan. I am happy to say I stand corrected. Tokyo Ghost is a very interesting sci-fi story. Remender does a great job with any sci-fi world and his gradual world building for future LA is very well done. The two constables are a good team and their exploration of humanity without the need for the tech is a very interesting statement. The story really takes off when they e [...]


    3. "Consumption gives human life meaning."Tokyo ghost is a beautifully illustrated dystopian tale of action, romance, and severe social allegory. And damn it, even on my second read this is Rick Remender's most ambitious work to date. Constables Led Dent and Debbie "Decay" Jacobs are trying to quit their employer and multimedia conglomerate Flak to escape Los Angeles, now a toxic, murderous, debauched city-state you can scarcely imagine. Somehow it is beautiful in its horror. "Once upon a time ther [...]


    4. Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars“We eat together. No one distracted by phones, no one politicking for money or stature. No loud egos. No one more important than anyone else…how sweet the simplicity is.”I grabbed this first volume of Tokyo Ghost on a whim while attending Fan Expo Canada at the end of the summer. I had heard of it previously because (if you don’t know this yet, where have you been?) Deadly Class, also written by Rick Remender, happens to be my favourite comic series of all time. W [...]


    5. Wow reading this one was a real blast.Like Pat Mills and Frank Miller writing Marshall Law meets Ronin after watching a Masamune Shirow anime marathon and drinking a fully loaded wagon of beers.Not bad at all for being a chance buy, I purchased it after visiting a manga exhibit here in Rome and I was just in the mood found this in the museum bookstore and the artworks hooked me for good.If you like anime about cyberpunk dystopic settings filled with ultraviolence and an anti-technology message t [...]


    6. I have appreciated some of Remenders work, but I have never absolutely enjoyed any of it. He can bring you interesting concepts and make you think about the current state of humanity, but his dialogue and character development needs work. I don't know if I would pick up another Remender book after this nonsense.Reviewed with honesty for Netgalley(Honestly)


    7. Art: 4.5Story: 1.0Edit: On further reflection I downgraded this from two stars to one. The art fails to redeem the story enough. I'll start with what's strong about Tokyo Ghost, and that's the art. This is the second comic I have read that is drawn and colored by Murphy and Hollingsworth and their work is just incredible. The world building they conceptualized and character designs are brilliant. If you are going to read Tokyo Ghost, pick it up for the art, because the story is trash. I don't kn [...]


    8. I received this from Netgalley and Image Comics in exchange for an honest review.I was hesitant to grab this one, which was an automatic download on Netgalley. I've been snared a few times by Rick Remender, and it was the old "fool me once" scenario.Surprisingly, I really, REALLY dug this one. The storyline, the artwork, it all merged into a bang-up volume.From the insanity of the tech-heavy LA to the peaceful tech-free Tokyo, this story of trying to escape one's past and build a new life was re [...]


    9. This one of this graphic novels in which you need to take your time because the firsts pages you don't have any freaking idea about what's happening, the images and the dialoges start give you some clues but there's so much to proccede Jesus of Killer, the technological society, the girl who kick ass but you don't know why is here, the robot-human-big guy or something like thatbut as the pages carry on everything start to have sense and even more the plot start be really interesting. And i don't [...]


    10. Outstanding art with a clever and bizarre story that I maybe didn't like very much. Still not sure what to make of the story. 3.5 stars.


    11. 5 starsRemember that Jude Law movie Repo Men? This takes a bit of that idea and runs with it. Absolute masterpiece dystopian sci-fi story here by Remender and Murphy.


    12. I opened the file, started reading…. and during the first few pages I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to finish this comic. There’s just…so much going on, it’s overwhelming. Its Masamune Shirow’s Ghost in the Shell mixed with a little Judge Dredd and a sprinkle of Sin City, all dipped in harsh 80’s neon coloring and tripping on a whole lot of A grade acid. There is sex and drugs and ultra-violence. You can practically hear the soundtrack of Escape from New York or Blade Runner blaring [...]


    13. This was pretty awesome. Definitely not what I was expecting from Rick Remender after reading Deadly Class. I loved the setting and premise, a dystopian cyberpunk society where in order to escape from the terrible world around them people plug themselves into tech. The story follows Debbie, a pretty neat young lady who is attempting to survive day to day in the hellish landscape that is L.A. with her tech addicted boyfriend, Led or Teddy or something. Oh yeah, and Led is a constable and he goes [...]


    14. Led Mella y Debbie Declive forman una pareja de alguaciles de la Corporación Flak que se dedican a proteger a sus clientes de los abusos de los hackers, tras resolver su último caso el Sr Flak les encarga una nueva misión, viajar desde los Ángeles a la nación jardín de Tokyo, el último lugar libre de tecnología de la tierra, para acabar con el cacique que está en el poder y conseguir acceso a los recursos (agua limpia y comida) necesarios para mejorar la vida en el estado de Los Ángele [...]


    15. So this was one of Remender's earlier gems of another dystopian future. As we all know Remender goes on and on about his mental health and in this one it really shows in his comics. I think he must have been going through therapy when writing this and this would have been a great outlet of his creativity. He uses physiological meanings and words, to the point when he's shoe horning them in like "I'm not codependent on you babe". It shows his immaturity and holds the characters back. Nonetheless [...]


    16. Was OK, but not very original and is kind of typical Remender where he tries to shock but dosent do anything new.Will read the next volume as this has promise but was overall disappointing.


    17. I keep buying post-Deadly Class Rick Remender comics, hoping they'll be as good as some of his earlier stories, but it just isn't. His books have become so didactic that the stories aren't stories so much as morality plays about such topics as "hope and optimism make the world better" and (for Tokyo Ghost) "technology is scary damn kids on their cellphones". I keep hoping he'll produce another Uncanny X-Force or Deadly Class, but alas. Yet, at least with Black Science and Low, there's enough goo [...]


    18. A not-too-distant future in which unemployment is sky high due to automation, resources are dwindling, and the masses are pacified with drugs and entertainment. Oh, and murdered for sport. Every sick kink imaginable is cheap for the taking, including "body pirating, clone incest, snuff prostitutes, Hong Kong suicide slots, clown torture." And more.If you look REAL CLOSE you can get just a hint of Remender's politics. eg "Frak News" has 98% of the residents of the motherloving LOS ANGELES ISLAND [...]


    19. This is very much a paint-by-numbers cyberpunk story. It's basically just a remix of tropes and ideas we've seen from other sources, both in terms of story and art. Maybe cyberpunk has fallen out of fashion enough for people to think this is original, I don't know, but I've seen all of this before, and done better.Our main villain is a "Millennialist" who spouts internet catchphrases and slang that have already fallen out of favor. YOLO, slag, roflcopter, etc. He takes over people's bodies and c [...]


    20. A little too edgy at times but damn, when it's good it's great. The art is truly wonderful and pacing is spot on. The fights are meaningful and just like most of Rick work, super depressing. Can't wait for more. 24 minutes ago


    21. After running out of Black Science Vols, I decided to give this Remender and Co novel a go. As I found with Black Science, the first half of the 1st vol is confusing. Alot happens with the characters and plot, and you dont really start at the beginning. You feel like youre a little late to the party. A little different in style, more cyberpunk post apocalyptic with great action. Although I think its more a shot at where our current world is going, with our obsessive nature with Tech. Deeper than [...]


    22. No problems with this baby at all. Stylistically it felt a bit like Blade Runner with some Halo Jones and other retro storytelling pleasures added in. Remender's hard work on this totally got me hooked, and Sean Murphy's artwork is nothing short of phenomenal. Now I want to check out the oversized deluxe volume, and I'm jumping right into volume 2.


    23. My fella insisted that I read this. So I got it from NetGalley, took a look at the first page of story, rolled my eyes at the violencey art, and closed the book. But see, my guy's taste in comics is similar to mine, and usually he's not so insistent unless he thinks I'll really like it. So I gave it another shot.This time, I zoomed in to 2x the size on my digital comics reader. And that made ALL the difference.The art by Sean Murphy is AMAZING!!! You can't just get a feel for the world by glanci [...]


    24. When I see “Rick Remender” on a comic I expect and generally get fucked-up human beings dealing with their fucked-up life choices. Tokyo Ghost is firmly in his usual patch. Dreadful odds, crushing setbacks, grim reversals, hopeless cases, agonised interior monologues, violence, naked people, the sweet bloom of hope which will soon be crushed underfoot.Tokyo Ghost is Rick Remender’s take on that age-old question: How can human beings achieve happiness in a hypermediated and hypersexualised [...]


    25. Remender and Murphy? Fuck yeah.This is the kind of story that Murphy's art really lends itself to. Very reminiscent of The Wake, but with a more pieced together (and much less hard to follow) plot. The illustrations have all sorts of little easter eggs, like a panel that shows trolls online talking shit about Remender and Murphy via a social network equivalent of Twitter, or a pinball game that's called "Black Science". Love it.It's the semi-far semi-near (the year 2089 to be exact) future. The [...]


    26. 'Tokyo Ghost, Vol. 1: Atomic Garden' by Rick Remender with art by Sean Gordon Murphy is a crazy futuristic tale that seems frenetic and cautionary.In a Los Angeles of 2089, people are addicted to technology. We are introduced to a type of police officer named Led Dent who is heavily addicted, and the woman who loves him, Debbie Decay. They live in a highly violent world that lives off of over the top entertainment. When Debbie was younger, she weaned herself off of technology and fell in love wi [...]


    27. Remender delivers an entertaining sci-fi/fantasy story in Tokyo Ghost. Lots of this mixed genre going on lately in Image and with remender too, but this story feels a bit better than some of the others even if it familar. Tokyo Ghost follows Led Dent and Debbie decay who are constables in 2089 Los Angeles, needless to say the world has gone to shit. Technology rules everyone and turns them into addicts. Led and Debbie are tasked with one more job which is to take a warlord down and capture their [...]


    28. The artwork in Tokyo Garden is incredible, just as Hollingsworth's art was in Low. I savored the level of detail on each page, and the sketchiness of the style enhance the frantic nature of the story.I was really compelled by this book conceptually. The struggle between humanity's addiction to technology and need for nature is something I relate to philosophically, and Tokyo Ghost approached the struggle from a fresh perspective. Other concepts and and ideas also were interesting and helped enha [...]


    29. Just how many post-apocalyptic future stories is Rick Remender planning on writing? Basically "Low" at sea level, the series is saved by Sean Murphy's dynamic art. No one does tripped out, dystopian futures like Murphy. Remender doesn't create very likable characters here (or anywhere else for that matter). Debbie is really the only character to root for.Received an advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


    30. I mean What the hell was that? And I mean that in a good way. It's super over-the-top and won't sit well with the easily off-put, but Remender and Murphy successfully created the mutant offspring of Blade Runner, Mad Max and Akira. It's a trip.
