After a few conversations today with Image and Sean Murphy (Gordon if you’re nasty) we’ve decided to not artificially bump the orders on TOKYO GHOST #1 with a bunch of variants. The general consensus is that we’re doing harm to the industry with this tactic. A tactic we’ve all used on many other books and always felt a bit off about. Sean has already done a number of covers, so we’ll be offering an “A” cover and “B” cover, both by Sean, and that’s it. TOKYO GHOST #1 is a double-sized first issue and ships in September.
The Isles of Los Angles 2089 – Humanity is addicted to technology, a population of unemployed leisure seekers, blissfully distracted from toxic contamination, who borrow, steal, and kill to buy their next digital fix. Getting a virtual buzz is the only thing left to live for. It’s the biggest industry, the only industry, the drug everyone needs, and gangsters run it all.
And who do these gangsters turn to when they need their rule enforced? Constables Led Dent and Debbie Decay. This duo is about to be given a job that will force them out of the familiar squalor of Los Angels to take down the last tech-less country on Earth: The Garden Nation of Tokyo.
Bestselling writer Rick Remender (Black Science, Deadly Class) and superstar art team Sean Murphy (Chrononauts, Punk Rock Jesus) and Matt Hollingsworth (Hawkeye, Wytches) examine our growing addiction to technology while thirsting for a nature we continue to destroy.
