Madefire ComicsAfter a brief sojourn to Mexico City, Dave Gibbons’ incredibly versatile Treatment franchise returns to the streets of Tokyo and onto the Madefire app in another action packed instalment. With stunning art from Kinman Chan and a script from Robbie Morrison, Treatment Tokyo is already one of the slickest and most impressive titles on the Madefire roster and this latest episode continues to raise the bar of what a digital comic can be.

Madefire ComicsWe always love the arrival of new Madefire titles, and this month we have had not one but two new installments of Dave Gibbon’s brilliant Treatment series. If you’ve not checked it out before, Treatment is a global televisual phenomenon whereupon the guilty are judged live on TV for the pleasure of an increasingly blood-thirsty audience. With franchises in different cities it makes for a brilliantly imaginative franchise and one of the most consistent in the Madefire catalogue.
