This is the best series I’ve read since the Sandman. I love the bloated, hedonistic, over-the-top future setting, Ellis’s witty dialogue and the match-made-in-heaven art by Darrick Robertson. Robertson really captures the Spider Jerusalem flagrancy in all its naked, in-your-face indifference to everything but the truth, not to mention ultra-reinforcing the quirky diatribe/rant (s) that Ellis concocts for Spider to spew.
If you liked Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and you’ve never heard of Transmetropolitan, do yourself a favor and check it out.
“Ah, Spider’s a dirty bastard and a moral vacuum, but you couldn’t have a better friend.”
