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!

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 ;)
