The beginning of the series is great and the election plot was fantastic - but Ellis and Robertson take readers to another level, starting here. The story, as well as its preceding one-shots, moves beautifully through squalor and loveliness all the while showing us a bit more of the human underneath Spider's manic aggressive shell. There's a lot of soul in there - and they're starting to show it to us. Too bad it happens just as sh!t really starts to hit the fan for Spider and the filthy assistants... and we're talking in the biggest of ways...

Good collection of one-offs; never enough. ( )

This is the darkest book so far with little if any of the previous twisted humor from before and it needs to be dark to set up the story to come. The threads from the last few books are coming together and a war is about to start.
The set up for this has been amazing and the quality of the writing, art and characterization just keep getting better and better. As much as I'm dreading what is to come, I can't wait to read the next book. ( )

This series continues to be excellent. Latest volume darker, seemingly a lot more violent (this is not for people who are sensitive to such stuff) and more disturbing - what responsibility do journalists have? Should you trust the police (no)? How about the government (definitely not)? And apparently hate crime exists in the far future, too. Siiiiigh. Depressing, but nonetheless excellent. ( )

This volume of Transmetropolitan starts out with some vignettes providing more depth to Spider Jerusalem and the future in which he lives, then begins to dig into governmental corruption ranging from the City’s police department to the office of the Presidency. For something written in 1999–2000, it certainly reads like a commentary on more recent messes like Free Speech Zones and bogus attempts to suppress information in the name of national security. ( )
