Tokyo Ghost, Volume 1: Atomic Garden Shoots Up Our Tech-Addictions

TOKYO GHOST, VOLUME 1 ATOMIC GARDENBestselling writer Rick Remender teams up with superstar art team Sean Murphy and Matt Hollingsworth for a bleak and poignant reflection on the consequences of tech-addiction in Tokyo Ghost, Volume 1: Atomic Garden. This collects issues #1-5 into trade paperback and will be available in March.

Tokyo Ghost, Volume 1: Atomic Garden 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.

Tokyo Ghost, Volume 1: Atomic Garden (ISBN 978-1-63215-663-1) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, March 9th and bookstores on Tuesday, March 15th, and will be available for $9.99.
