Publisher Comments:

DC's new editions of TRANSMETROPOLITAN begin here, with this volume collecting issues #1-6 of the acclaimed Vertigo series from writer Warren Ellis and artist Darick Robertson! After years of selfimposed 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 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.

Synopsis:

Meet Spider Jerusalem, outlaw journalist of the future, who returns to the city after five years of self-imposed exile to become a columnist for the newspaper The Word, while plunging headlong into the bad weirdness that is the 21st century.

Michael Hockinson, May 11, 2008 (view all comments by Michael Hockinson)
Ellis' masterwork of a violent, bleak and all too plausible postcyberpunk society is as relevant now as it was when Vertigo first published it as a series of 60 comics books between 1997 and 2002. Warren's scathing commentary on politics and consumerism, channeled through his heavily-tattooed alter-ego, journalist Spider Jerusalem, will resonate with the cynic in us all after eight years of "W." Darick Robertson's detailed artwork is the perfect visual match. Funny as hell...in a very dark fashion.
