Format: Paperback
Spider Jerusalem steps up his campaign of showing the world the truth about President Callahan aka the Smiler, and vindicating the death of Vita Severn. But as he builds his case by going through the list of people involved with Callahan's election, each of the witnesses is killed off. Worse still, he's about to lose his job at the Word and become a true outlaw journalist, hitting the road and dodging bullets and the President sets his sights on a bald headed drug addict and his filthy assistants.

"Gouge Away" continues the increasingly more dramatic storyline of the battle between Spider and the President with the stakes being raised more and more. I liked that Warren Ellis saw fit to get Spider out of the ivory tower that was the luxury apartment he was ensconced in and set him free in the City, it's made for a far more interesting story.

Also included is a one shot tale of the Filthy Assistants, Yellena and Channon, breaking free of Spider for a day and going wild in the City, as well as a look at the celebrity Spider's become due to his columns. Ellis enlists the help of artists like Bryan Hitch, Frank Quitely and Eduardo Risso to draw the TV movie/cartoon/porno versions of Spider following the success of "I Hate It Here".

As always the balance between serious and farcical is walked perfectly by Ellis and Darick Robertson, both of whom seem to be getting better and better with each passing book. "Gouge Away" is an excellent book and only makes the series that much more addictive and interesting to read. "Transmetropolitan" is highly recommended reading.

We are approaching Spider Jerusalem's finest hour; and by extension Transmetropolitan's too. This is a great story well told. It has thoughtful writing, powerful themes, strong references and some cool dialogue. It strikes a superb balance between intellectual and entertaining.

It begins with some wonderful parodies as we see Spider become a victim of his own success and get turned into a cartoon, a biography and even a porno. Each of these mini-strips has a guest artist including familiar names such as Bryan Hitch and Frank Quietly. Then there is a spin-off issue with the Filthy Assistants before the main three-part story: a formula that seems to work very well.

The art is great and it is fantastic to see the guest artists showing different styles yet which perfectly complement the writing. There are wonderful angles and composition that looks effortless yet makes such a difference to what you are seeing. Part of the book dips into heavy narration and rather than cram it into the frame it appears in the thick borders between them in a perfect white on black epigraph.

This is a great read and to date its strongest Thumbs Up!
