DC's new editions of TRANSMETROPOLITAN begin here, with this volume collecting issues #1-6 of the acclaimed Vertigo series from writer Warren Ellis and artist Darick Robertson! After years of selfimposed exile from a civilization rife with degradation and indecency, cynical journalist Spider Jerusalem is forced to return to a job he hates and a city he loathes. Working as an investigative reporter for the newspaper The Word, Spider attacks the injustices of his surreal 23rd century surroundings.

In this first volume, Spider ventures into the dangerous Angels 8 district, home of the Transients - humans who have decided to become aliens through cosmetic surgery. But Spider's interview with the Transients' leader gets him a scoop he didn't bargain for. And don't miss Spider's first confrontation with the President of the United States . . . in a men's room.

Rolling Stone described his work as, "more influenced by Jesus and Mary Chain than by the JUSTICE LEAGUE, while his characters fight for left-wing agendas over God and country, and kick puppies in the street."

He broke into the mainstream drawing JUSTICE LEAGUE for DC and went on to work for Marvel where he penciled titles including Wolverine, Spider-Man and most notably the New Warriors.

What a raw, up front, in your face read! There were no holds bars in this GN. So if you're afraid of some honesty, nudity, and cursing, then you're on the wrong boat captain because this has it all. Plus, it's a dystopian read and who doesn't love those?! It's messed up in all the right ways. There are so many underlying messages, behind all the awesome humor and hate, and boy where the graphics killer! Loved it!
