Transmetropolitan Page 2: More Page Scans
The cityscapes in Transmetropolitan are simply insane. All sorts of bizarre characters will pop up, so watch them carefully.
The Bowel Disrupter.
Some of the strangest folks in the City are the “revivals,” who are people that had their heads cryogenically freezed, only to be revived hundreds of years later. Unfortunately for them, they just can’t adapt to the changes.
Others choose to download their consciousness into a computer, and thus, become amorphous, sentient beings. It must suck when your significant other decides to do this.
Transients also exist in Transmetropolitan. Transients are people who transform their bodies into some other species.
Another city-shot. Again, the diversity in the artwork is just terrific.
Spider always gets the truth out of people. Sometimes he cajoles them - other times he beats it out of them.

I found it not so long ago and felt in love.
Spider Jerusalem is junkie, drunk, full of complexes, and most aggresive sunofabich in journalism business. But his the only person in City, which cares.
The series has 6 seasons, first 3 are my favorite.
Hi Mattness, I actually came into this after it was completed, so I track the comics by volume number (there are 10) instead of seasons. In terms of volumes, Volume 2 is probably my favorite - there are so many awesome cyberpunk ideas in it (this would be in seasons one and two I bet). Although, I love the whole series.

This comic made me what I wanted to be. I got into this series my first year of college, my freind gave me his first volume. i started to read it, and was hooked. Right now Im majoring in Journalism and Spider is my rolemodel. He represents What we not want, but NEED, in journalism today. a complete, total abstard who says nothing but the truth. We dont need the Bill o’rielly or the Wolf Blitzer. we need people like Spider, or the late hunter S. Thompson.
now I want to go monstering…

I loved these novels!! Does anyone have any recommendations for a similiar series? I’ve finished all ten Transmet, and now I’m at loose ends.

The Boys by Garth Ennis. It’s not the same as Transmet but the art is done by Derick Robertson and one of the best characters is a French heir apparent ( or maybe even an ancestor! ) of Spider Jerusalem.

Your review of Transmetropolitan is excellent. If I were to recommend it to someone in the future I would simply send them here. That being said, I must point out a factual error. The column Spider wrote for The Word was titled “I Hate It Here” not “I hate this city.” This slight is probably insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but I am a rabid fan who has probably lost perspective.
