Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Collected here are issues #31-36 of the groundbreaking series. In an ideal situation, readers have digested the first issues; otherwise, you will likely feel lost. Spider Jerusalem is a gonzo journalist modeled after legendary writer Hunter S. Thompson. Set in a futuristic dystopia in a perverse, lurid city—ostensibly New York—the story depicts how Spider's omnipresence in the culture has caused him to become an overblown caricature of himself. No one takes him seriously anymore, and the government is out to get him, but Spider is one step ahead of the game. Using investigative prowess and his fists, he ferrets out the backstory of President Callahan, whom he reveals via newsfeeds as a perverted, corrupt, horrible person.Verdict This deviant, twisted satire romps through events reminiscent of real headlines, punctuated by violence, graphic sexual situations, and portrayals of dystopia at its worst. A satiric commentary of the contemporary world, this raucous portrait reveals Spider to be a cunning, savage journalist willing to use any means necessary to uncover the truth. The story moves thanks to razor-sharp, quick-moving writing and crisp, clear art; the grinning, relentless, and perennially smoking Spider effortlessly evokes images of Thompson in readers' minds. For fans of that writer's aura and the "Transmetropolitan" series in general.—Jeff Hunter, Royal Oak, MI
