I bought this book on a whim since it looked like nothing I had seen before and I enjoyed sci-fi, and boy, am I glad that I did.

Old City Blues is a fantastic webcomic written and drawn by Giannis Milonogiannis that harkens back to such works as Ghost in the Shell, Dominion Tank Police, Appleseed, and Akira, part original work and part homage to their cyberpunk styles and themes, backed up by truly unique and vivid pencils that separate his work from any other I've encountered.

More specific to this exact product, however, I feel the quality of the publication deserves special attention. Every page is very dense, high quality paper that feels far more substantial than your average comic or manga page. The hardcover binding, front, and back are minimally designed (mine was a canary yellow book completely different in appearance from the thumbnail on Amazon's page) with subtle embossing of the art. It's a very clean, obviously well-crafted package that's visually appealing within your living space, condensed and light enough to be easily taken anywhere, and sturdy enough to last. However, if -for whatever reason- you find yourself particularly taken with the blue and white cover Amazon displays, you may come away disappointed, or at least surprised.

I bought this on a whim the other day, which turned out to be one of those rare moments where life steers you down the right path. Giannis is a wonderful artist who knows how to use loose and accurate style at the right time, I especially love his tech design.

If you are someone who enjoys Gundam, Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner, or Metal Gear, this is for you. If you just like comics and a good story, this is also for you. Milonogiannis is extremely talented and I am hoping he makes more installments to this series soon.

I bought this book on a whim since it looked like nothing I had seen before and I enjoyed sci-fi, and boy, am I glad that I did. I read through the book in one sitting, since it's short and to the point. However, I found the book extremely captivating as well, and the simple dialogue leaves you to imagine all of the undertones that come with what the character is saying. 10/10 will read again.
