Editorial Reviews

Spin Magazine
Transmetropolitan [is] a comic book series that follows the smart-mouthed, heavily-armed, perpetually smoking journalist Spider Jerusalem, who lives in a future so grimy and chaotic it could be the present - except for the aliens. Outfitted in water-walking Air Jesus sneakers and snacking on caribou eyes from the local Eskimo fast-food place, Spider tries to make sense of a city where a new religion starts every hour and "buy-bombs" upload ads into people's dreams....Transmet is brilliant future-shock commentary.

    Crazy sci-fi at its best!

    Basic plot: Spider Jerusalem is a journalist who hates everything and everybody loves that. He's been living up an isolated mountain for five years, attempting to escape the festering stinkpit known as The City, but he gets a call from his editor explaining that he has to come down and write a couple more books or he's going to be landed with a lawsuit. The last Transmet book Back on the Streets covered this, as well as his initial comeback into society; this issue introduces new characters and goes over even more things that annoy Spider to the limit. Brought into the light is Channon Yarrow, Spider's dysfunctional assistant; Ziang, her boyfriend who's got a strange eye on machines and industrial technology; The Beast, the current president who's been lambasted by Spider before; Officer Stompanato, a police dog with an extreme vendetta against Spider; and Mary, a shell-shocked cryogenic revival. Lust for Life also introduces all-terrain Air Jesus sneakers, 500 TV channels of raw sleaze, illegal bowel disruptors, "buybombs", reservations preserving different areas of culture for visitation, the art of foglet, the lecherous Religious Convention, zero-contact tribes, and other strange areas of society in The City. My last word? Transmetropolitan is a fantastic comic book and works as a great social commentary by using futuristic means. The phrase "science fiction" often drives me to recall extremely bad and conventionally strained EC Weird Science and Weird Fantasy comics, which is why I don't dive on the specific category, but Transmetropolitan is not only science-fiction, but it covers shades of action, comedy, and the art of learning lessons about the world. I advise you read this and all of the other Transmet collections; you'll enjoy yourself for quite a bit.
