The social justice aspects of this volume make it somewhat different from any that has come before - this is not to say that the previous volumes haven't done similar things, haven't shown Spider's kind heart, but this was different no matter how you dice it. There was anger here, an anger that comes from frustration - and it's not just Spider's, but (I think) Ellis' too. We know the showdown with the President is coming, but hopefully there remain moments like this, where Spider does good for society in more subtle ways as well.

New to me from here on out. Still cuddly. ( )

Found the missing link in series fortunately.

Spider Jerusalem who in last book lost his job at Word and sneaked away with all the money and his two assistants. He is visited by President's lackey killers and he investigates Vita Severn's assassination uncovering more dirty truths. Toward the end, also realises something is really wrong with him and he is not as mortal as he would like to be. Strangely Spider is less of a filthy man in this issue, he is now even likeable. :| ( )

This is starting to get repetitive but really, the story overall story just keeps getting stronger and stronger. It's been a while since I've read something that has me so engaged and on the edge of my seat that I want to cheat and peek at the end just to relieve some of the tension but this series is doing that. This particular edition felt a bit more like a set up for the next arc more than a strong stand alone episode but it worked well for me and actually ratchet up the tension instead of easing it. And the last couple of pages...they pretty much say it all without any dialog at all. ( )

I think this is probably the book that I least enjoyed out of this series (so far, but I guess there's still potential for suckiness ahead). It really didn't seem to have much of a plot, just kind of meandered about being clever and rude as you would expect from Spider/Ellis. I'm hoping this is the setup for a more plot-filled next book.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The truth hurts. That's old news to outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem, but what's changed is how high the stakes have become. Long a thorn in the side of the powerful and hypocritical, Jerusalem has made an enemy of the new President of the United states-- a man who happens to be crazier than a rabid rattlesnake, and twice as mean. Now, driven underground with his loyal (and filthy) assistants, deprived of all his comforts and hunted like a rabbit at the dog track, Jerusalem prepares for his greatest coup yet-- provided, of course, that he can survive past this afternoon" -- p. [4] of cover.… (more)
