I liked how this felt more like reading his column than reading a part of a story and I liked all the different looks provided by the different artist, it felt fresh but still consistent with the feel of the original comics. There is nothing here that really adds to the story arc but I love how it gives more background and layers of Spider's world.

I¿ve been reading Warren Ellis¿ blog for a few years, and enjoyed some of his other work, and I finally sat down to read my stack of Transmetropolitan collections. And, being a software engineer, of course I picked it up with the one labeled ¿Volume 0¿. (When indexing arrays in languages like C, the index 0 indicates the start of the array.)In the spirit of Warren Ellis¿ writing, I accuse him of having this volume numbered 0 explicitly to mess with people like me. It¿s not an introduction to the series, it¿s not a backstory, it¿s not a prologue. It¿s a collection of the columns written by the series¿ main character, gonzo journalist Spider Jerusalem. It is a paean to decadence and depravity, written by a man who clearly loves his world so much that he holds it so close he sees a great deal to hate; amidst the curmudgeonly bile and self-loathing bitterness, there are kernels of wisdom.But if you¿re picking up the series for the first time, put this volume at the end of the stack. I¿ve picked up enough details here and there that I was able to figure out a number of references, but I¿m sure I would¿ve appreciated it more had I read it after reading the rest of the series.

Warren Ellis' anti-hero extraordinaire Spider Jerusalem returns, this time in excerpts from his column. With dozens of guest artists - the best of the genre - and some of Ellis' best lines, Volume 0 should be required reading for anyone with a sense of humor, a love of journalism, a taste for comics, and a high threshhold for the obscene.
