The boys are back with another book review, this time of the first volume of the Image Comics series Tokyo Ghost. Chris and Sam talk about how much they enjoy artist Sean Murphy's signature style with the series and Sam talks about the moral implications and run-off-the-rails storytelling of writer Rick Remender. Finally, the gang talks about potential pop culture influences they see in the volume collecting the first five issues of the critically acclaimed series.

Tokyo Ghost, Volume 1: Atomic Garden will be out on Comixology and in comic book stores everywhere Wednesday, March 9!
