Preview: Tokyo Ghost #1 (Unlettered)

Wed, July 23rd, 2014 at 6:51pm PDT

Bestselling writer Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS) and artist Sean Murphy (The Wake, Punk Rock Jesus) team up with colorist Matt Hollingsworth (Hawkeye, The Wake) for the new ongoing series TOKYO GHOST, coming to Image Comics in Summer 2015.

TOKYO GHOST welcomes readers to the isles of New Los Angeles, 2189. Humanity has become nothing more than a sea of consumers, ravenous and starving wolves, sick from toxic contamination, who have to borrow, beg, and steal for the funds to buy, buy, buy their next digital fix. Getting a thrill, a distraction from reality, is the only thing left to live for. Entertainment is the biggest industry, the drug everyone needs, and gangsters run it all. And who do these gangsters turn to when they need the "law" enforced? Led Dent and Debbie Decay, constables of the law, which is a nice way to say “brutal killing machines." The duo are about to be presented with an assignment that will force them out of the decay of LA and into the mysterious lost nation of Tokyo.
