DC’s new editions of Transmetropolitan begin here, with this volume collecting issues #1 to 6 of the acclaimed Vertigo series from writer Warren Ellis and artist Darick Robertson! After years of self-imposed exile from a civilization rife with degradation and indecency, cynical journalist Spider Jerusalem is forced to return to a job he hates and a city he loathes. Working as an investigative reporter for the newspaper The Word, Spider attacks the injustices of his surreal 23rd century surroundings.
In this new edition of the first volume, Spider ventures into the dangerous Angels 8 district, home of the Transients - humans who have decided to become aliens through cosmetic surgery. But Spider's interview with the Transients' leader gets him a scoop he didn't bargain for. And don’t miss Spider’s first confrontation with the President of the United States… in a men's room.
Written by Warren Ellis, with art by Darick Robertson, Jerome K. Moore, Keith Aiken, Ray Kryssing, Dick Giordano, Kim DeMulder and Rodney Ramos; features a cover by Darick Robertson. This is one of the best comics series of the last few years, mixing great characters, drama, humour and using the futuristic setting to parallel present day problems with wit and biting satire. Genius. Pack your bowel disruptor now.
