Spider and the Smiler meet up for a final "interview" and the fate of Spider and his brain disease is revealed.

Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson end the series in the tone of the books that went before it, with the kind of bravado and knack for compelling storytelling readers have come to expect from this duo and "One More Time" is a fitting end to this brilliant character.

I will say that I felt the showdown with Spider and Smiler, while satisfying, was a bit uninventive in how Spider brings Smiler down - it's a trick that he pulled on the President earlier in the series when he was campaigning and I felt the Smiler's confessions to be a bit drawn out and overlong. And also, if he'd gone that far and was literally holding a gun to Spider's head, why not pull the trigger?

That was maybe my only problem with the book, otherwise its righteous words and politics echo through the years, 10 now since it ended, with the same potency as when they were written. And the series holds up really well, I enjoyed this second reading of the series as much as the first time.

The little details are hilarious too. Throughout the series there have been little messages of "Free Steve Chung" on the sidewalk screens and in the final issue is a newspaper headline with "Steve Chung Freed!". Spider's garden also spells out "F*** YOU" when looked at from an aerial vantage, and the border guard from issue 1 gets his comeuppance.

It ends in the best way possible, I won't spoil it, but it's brilliant and makes me wish Ellis and Robertson would return to do another series with Spider. If you've never read "Transmetropolitan" (and why would you be reading a review of the last book in the series if you haven't?) or, like me, it's been years since you read it, pick it up again and treat yourself to some quality, original comics fare.

Spider, you degenerate - I love you. Thanks Warren and Darick for this amazing series!

'One More Time' contains the final six episodes of Transmet, and they don't disappoint. Spider's slugging match with the Smiler comes to a head, and we see the personal aftermath and what happens to Spider and his neural degeneration.
Won't spoil it, but suffice it to say that the ending is first rate. Perfectly fitting close to the series.
Warren Ellis' writing is as sharp as ever, and the artwork is all to Transmet's usual standards.
The whole series is classic stuff, and this is no exception. An excellent book all round.

'All news services in the city are currently occupied by troops from the Martial Law detatchment. And now, footage of them killing unarmed students'
Chapter 10. End of the road for everyone. The conclusion of this fabulous story arc will leave you amazed, shocked, saddened and utterly satisfied. If it was a movie you'd be on your feet cheering and then chewing your fingernails to the bone - all within a few moments.
No spoilers here - buy it and read it. Now.

Format: Paperback
This is the end of Warren Ellis' political/ journalistic satire. Is it a worthy ending? It is. You won't be disappointed. You aren't assured of a "good guys always win" platitude here. There is real danger. Spider does have some surprises but they aren't startling Deus ex Machina. All the pieces fit together nicely.

This is a solid volume that can give you some home truths about our own world if you care to look for them. Its politics is clear but not rammed down your throat. You get the feeling of Watchmen or V for Vendetta in that this is proper grown up reading. The whole thing also unfolds just like a news story and you can easily picture this happening sometime in our future.

The art is good but Robertson appears to have motion blur fever. During a car chase scene this digital trickery really detracts from how good an artist he is and breaks your immersion. Other than that it is solid work.

It's a textbook brilliant piece of writing and a great ending that you can't be certain of predicting. The perfect Thumbs Up!

This is the final piece of the Transmet jigsaw. I cannot tell you what happens as it will ruin your enjoyment of the book.
All I can tell you is that Spider and the Smiler do finally have it out. Spider is still just as bad as you expect, his filthy assistants are still just as bad and there is still corruption everywhere.
There is no sense of anticlimax after reading this - buy it now.
The filthy monkey wrote it - now you need to buy it!
10/10
