Comic Book Review: Tokyo Ghost v1 by Rick Remender

cover84693-mediumWow – a completely different kind of addiction. Or is it? Fascinatingly creative and frighteningly real.

It’s a story of cycles. About repeating – and not repeating them. And, yes, motorcycles.

This story is intense. And crazy. But there’s some truth here amid the spectacle.

It is hard to shed the cocoon of familiarity and seek out a better life — even when what we leave behind is toxic. We often attach ourselves to whatever is nearest and convince ourselves it is right. Even when we know it isn’t.

Yes, it’s graphic. Yes, it’s violent.

But it has heart.

I thought it was worth reading. Not just for the picture it paints of what could be our dark future.

And the art?? Frikkin’ gorgeous!

And the ending?!? Damn cliffhangers!

Thanks to NetGalley, Diamond Distributors, and Image Comics for a copy in return for an honest review.
