"TOKYO GHOST is a love story about Constable Led Dent and his sidekick Debbie Decay. They are the heavy hand of the law in the new Isles of Los Angeles, about seventy years from now. They work for the Flack World Corporation, which rules the city because they provide the entertainment and technology. This is how the leaders of the world are decided in the not too distant future."

"Like I said, it’s a kind of love letter to Blade Runner, Judge Dredd, Akira, RoboCop, that have that dystopic apocalyptic future that isn’t super unreasonable at this point and still have a good dollop of humor and makes fun of a lot stuff and makes fun of itself."

The biggest difference is that "Punk Rock Jesus" is a much more mature book with more complicated themes than anything I've done before. I think it reflects what I've learned in the years between these books, the things I've read, the influences I've discovered, etc. "Punk Rock Jesus" was in my head before "Off-Road" -- the reason I put it aside was that I knew I wasn't ready for a project that intense. Only in the last few years have I felt more like I'm in a better place to handle the task.” – Sean Murphy

"I love Rod Serling. I generally don’t read modern sci-fi, but I love the humanity and simplicity in his sci-fi and we saw it in the guys he worked with like Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson. The mechanics weren’t interesting to them. It was the human consequences that engaged us and I think that’s how you do sci-fi for a mass audience. Chrononauts owes a lot to those guys. A simple idea using real world events and people."

"I relate a lot to Chris. While I agree with most everything he says, his tactics are wrong. He's the version of me that never saw the value of diplomacy and patience. On my worst days, or when I'm drunk, I'm sure I can spout off a bit like Chris does from time to time. But I try not to." - Sean Murphy

One thing I'd like to be clear about: Punk Rock Jesus isn't a book about atheism nor am I grinding my ax. My wife is religious and so are my parents, and I'd be stunned if they didn't enjoy this book. There's a character in the book for everyone--at least that's how I've tried to write it. Nothing would bother me more if I had Christian readers who stopped being Sean Murphy fans because of Punk Rock Jesus.” – Sean Murphy

"And I wanted to do something which is a common fantasy, but as far as I know has never been done before… which is a story ABOUT someone being irresponsible and succumbing to the temptation of using it for themselves. The idea that they will know the lottery numbers or stocks and shares or winning sides in historical events. I know it’s a very simple idea, but like Kick-Ass I think it’s one of those quite simple things that nobody has really done. At least as far as I’m aware. It’s touched on with Biff in BTTF2, but this is much bigger and wider isn’t malevolent. we still really like these guys. Tonally, Guardians of the Galaxy is what a lot of people online are comparing it to and I’m really happy with that. That’s a great compliment."

I picked this up on a whim at my gaming shop.  Mostly because of the price.  But I have to say I'm interested.

Cover and the first four pages after cut.

Greetings True Believers! This S_D 1.0 classic needed a re-post. Superman/Batman Annual #1. The issue that launched a thousand slashfics. The story that covered the founding of DC's greatest friendship (Or depending on your point of view, it's greatest romance).

This story has everything. Action, humor, the multiverse, screwing with Lois and a certain Merc with a Mouth?
