    Bottom Line: This book is quickly becoming the most fun series on the shelves that nobody is talking about. Remender has raised the stakes consistently every issue for the past few installments and shows no sign of stopping. And we love every page of it. Read Full Review

    'Tokyo Ghost' is a fantastic subversive powerhouse of science fiction that should find more readers as a trade. Those of us lucky enough to enjoy the majesty of Remender's wild script and Murphy/Hollingsworth's magnificent art on a monthly basis will have to wait anxiously for the epic final issue. The fate of the world will be decided between magical analogwarriors and technologically brainwashed minions of a madman. Comics doesn't get any better than this. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Aug 4, 2016

    Essentially, Tokyo Ghost #9 is a culmination of everything that has made this book so incredible thus far. It's all here, from the quiet character moments to the overstated action sequences to the hyperbolic social commentary. That being said, I am really left with the sense that this series is ending long before it should have. And yeah, part of that definitely comes from the fact that I've absolutely adored this book. But I do believe that taking some more time to delve into a few elements of the series would have vastly improved it overall. Read Full Review

    If you expected Rick Remender and Sean Murphy to ease up following last issue's emotional gut-puncher, think again. While not as personally devastating, issue #9 starts fast and doesn't let up, further detailing Davey Trauma's horrendous designs while still devoting time to those left mourning in his wake.
