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:

"Transmetropolitan" chronicles the exploits of 21st-century outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem, who returns to The City after five years of self-imposed exile. As a columnist for "The Word," Spider's first subjects are the Transients, humans who have become aliens through surgery.

If you only ever read one graphic novel, this is it. The story follows Spider Jerusalem, a radical journalist bent on exposing the hypocrisy of politicians, cult leaders, and journalists. As he wreaks a path of complete havoc through a world that is only a slightly satirical futuristic version of our own, you will find you cannot look away from the story, or from the character, who is completely horrible and lovely all at the same time. You will fall in love with these books, not be able to sleep, not be able to put them down, and have to buy extra copies when the set you lend out never makes it's way home. I am actually envious of all of you who will discover this character for the first time.

FYI: Not for the faint of heart-- this book contains profanity (LOTS of profanity), graphic sexual references, disgusting politicians who should be squashed like the insects they are, and depictions of violence-- mostly of the kicking and punching variety, but some with actual bloodiness. I couldn't watch Kill Bill, but could handle this just fine though.
