Format: Paperback
If Transmetropolitan were a movie this would be the chase sequence. You know the credits will soon be rolling and this is the final mad dash to get the girl/ bad guy/ McGuffin, before it is too late. Despite this rapid pacing Ellis is still smart enough to slow down for characterisation and to pay attention to the minor characters. There is a bit of exposition as the final cards are revealed and we do seem to spin our wheels for a bit but the last page makes for such an incredible ending.

The art doesn't have as much free reign as the last book but still does a great job. Talking heads and necessary dialogue can become a chore for an artist but Robertson keeps things fresh and vibrant with his creative angles, wonderful facial expressions and collage-type layouts.

Thumbs Up!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER on 28 Mar 2012
Format: Paperback
Spider's brain disease (kind of like Alzheimer's) continues to kill him, the effects this time around are becoming more noticeable as he struggles to write his exposes. Meanwhile he and his filthy assistants are hot on the trail of Callahan's potentially Presidential-term ending exploits in his campaign and hunt down the last living witness to his depravities.

It was cool to see Mitchell Royce, Spider's former editor at "The Word", get more of a look in in this, the penultimate book in the series, which gave him more depth as a character and gave Spider one more piece of the puzzle to bring down the Smiler.

That said, there's a lot of exposition to get through before the final book in the series. Necessary perhaps given the complicated sequence of events that's needed to relate before shutting down President Callahan for good, but still a bit of a trial to get through (I'm thinking of Fred Christ's scene in particular).

Still, definitely worth reading and of course essential if you've made it this far in the series. Not the best of the bunch but Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson not on 100% is still head and shoulders above the average comics writer/artist. Here's looking forward to an explosive finale in "One More Time". Shall we?

Format: Paperback
A classic Transmetropolitan collection, featuring Spider in all his glory. Whilst this book is of excellent quality and Darick et Warren excel as ever, it feels like a setup for the final collection; that is not to say that it disappoints, as there are beatings, rants and socio-political commentary abound. However I suggest you start with 'Back on the Street' or one of the earlier titles if you are new to Transmetropolitan.
The story of the paperback focuses on Spider recovering his form, after being diagnosed with a terminal brain illness. The City is recovering from a major disaster, and Spider is there to tell the people why.
And believe me when I say that you will giggle at the last few pages ;)

If you've followed the rest of Transmet then you should already know that Spider is losing his mind and has lost all the evidence he had on the President.
I cannot really tell you too much about the story and it would ruin the whole thing for you. It should be sufficient to say that Spider is full of his usual vitriol, which is fired at all the things that the common man should stand up against.
There are attempted murder on Spider and co, and Royce finally pulls out the trump cards for Spider when things look bad. The ending is the usually cliff hanger and I cannot wait for the next book.
Keep it coming!!!

I started reading the first 4 volumes 2 years ago and then got some time to pursue the rest of the series- Well worth the read.

I could have bought the "old" cover volume here in the UK but opted for this "New" cover release for Vol. 9, and It was worth the wait.
the delivery came within the projected time and I was very happy with the service and the results. I would buy from this seller again.
