    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Nov 18, 2015

    What else can I say other than I fucking love every bit of this book, and this issue especially. In a library increasingly buoyed by truly stellar work, Tokyo Ghost stands as Image Comics' most brilliant and seductive gem. Read Full Review

    We can't tell just yet what any of this means. Is Gardens of Tokyo as perfect and serene as it appears or is there a dark side? We know it has one creepy guy lurking about. It almost doesn't matter because Deb and Teddy are so well written that you fall under their spell. Remender is locked into his feelings and he lets it fly, baring his soul through Deb making the most cynical asshole believe true love, however fractured, can be redeemed. Read Full Review

    GWW - Anthony Franklin Nov 19, 2015

    The creative team behind Tokyo Ghost leaves the audience with a sense of wonder and intrigue surrounding the status of Japan. There is promise for the characters as their hopes are coming to bear fruit, yet there is a subtle sense of foreboding as the protagonists settle in this new, and still unfamiliar, land. While they become entranced with their new lifestyle and blooming relationship, there is a sense of more sinister machinations at play and that Debora and Teddy are not fully aware. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Nov 21, 2015

    This book started out "pretty good" but it took Issues #2 and #3 for it to really find it's legs and start telling a story that, at this point, I could only guess at it's ultimate direction. Read Full Review

    At this point it's not entirely clear what the driving conflict of the series is, but right now the characters and setting are more than enough to propel it along. Read Full Review

    Fox Force Five News - Keven Skinner Nov 23, 2015

    Issues one and two were HEAVY on the Bladerunner side of backdrops while issue three really dials up just how detailed Murphy can get when you add vegetation into the mix. Tokyo Ghost is without a doubt the most beautifully drawn comic series of 2015 and issue three is just as stunning as the first two even without having as many complexities in the background. I'm not so sure that story-wise issue #3 was as strong as the first two, but the bar was raised so high at the start that even a magical issue such as this would have trouble stacking up to it. Tokyo Ghost continues to stun me month after month and artist Sean Murphy has quickly become one of my favourites with the amount of work he's done here. Read Full Review
