I say goodbye to this perfection with a satisfied brilliancy that the ending brought to my pleasurable journey.



Thank you Warren Ellis, thank you.

This is it, the end of the road for Transmet, and Callahan, and Spider. Maybe Ellis fooled me, but I had the distinct feeling while reading this that he'd had much of the ending planned from very early on in the series. There are so many little things that come back around to have an impact, large or small. Or maybe he's just really good at juggling details on the fly, I don't know. Callahan's fall was satisfying, even if one element had been done before. I especially loved watching regular back ...more

This is the end of the road, and what a crazy ride it was.Dark, satirical and hilarious, it's one of the best graphic novels I read and now it's over.

Spider you insane bastard I will miss you.

Spider and the Smiler meet up for a final "interview" and the fate of Spider and his brain disease is revealed.

Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson end the series in the tone of the books that went before it, with the kind of bravado and knack for compelling storytelling readers have come to expect from this duo and "One More Time" is a fitting end to this brilliant character.

I will say that I felt the showdown with Spider and Smiler, while satisfying, was a bit uninventive in how Spider brings Smi

Uh! Ovo je bilo veliko razočarenje..

Transmetropolitan sam počeo čitati nakon odličnog Y: The Last Man series koji me iznenadio složenom radnjom i kvalitetom kojom je napisan. Tražio sam nešto "slično" a Transmetropolitan je iskakao na sve strane pa sam njega uzeo čitati.

Transmetropolitan naravno nije sličan Y: The Last Manu, nego možda Lobou, ako se dobro sjećam tog stripa, tu mislim ponajviše na "ultranasilje" kako to Amerikanci vole reći.

Glavni lik Transmetropolitana je Spider koji je pljunu

Holy shit, what a series. It amazes me how much high quality content Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson pack into this fantastic series. Whether its expertly written dialogue, immersive art or charmingly terrible characters, Transmetropolitan always delievers.

The final volume of Transmetropolitan had me hooked for sure; however I thought that volumes 8 and 9 were better overall. The build up to the climax throughout volumes 8 and 9 were more enjoyable than the ending itself.

Spider Jerusalem is an intensely appealing anti-hero in the comics world; without superpowers other than an energetic disregard for propriety and a monumental tolerance for intoxicants, he battles a corrupt government in a hyper-urban environment with the help of his filthy assistants. Seriously: what's not to love? He's as gritty as Batman but much funnier. He's as out there as Cole's most outrageous runs on Plastic Man, but grittier. Get it?

But this really is the sort of book perfectly suited

Okay, I have to take back all the mean things I said earlier this year about Warren Ellis. I still don’t get what the big deal with The Authority is, or why his runs on Iron Man or Hellblazer are so great, but this—this I get. This I love. Spider Jerusalem is fucked up and sexy and brilliant—my first real comics crush in years (and guys with too many tattoos are going to have a much better chance with me until it wears off, so thank Ellis for that, boys). Channon and Yelena, his filthy assist ...more

This was an excellent ending to a fascinating and engaging series, one of the best science fiction stories I've read in a long time.
If I were to have any quibble at all it would be that the final confrontation felt rushed but then everything felt rushed leading up to that point as things started happening faster and faster so it may be more that then anything. I found many of the themes in the book, as I saw them, fascinating. The importance of media and journalism in holding our leaders to task

This review will not go into the political theses that the whole series is shoving into its readers, for it may take a very, very long essay just for me to express how much Transmetropolitan reflects the political landscape, its limitations and how much more complex reality is. Transmetropolitan for the most part captures all the stench that us people would simply not smell, the ugly details in our own city and the scandals that might have transpired in our governement that we immediately forget ...more

So I finally did it: I read all of Transmetropolitan. Finally.

Ellis's ideas are often brilliant and groundbreaking. The focus on journalism as a means of obtaining justice is definitely atypical for a medium used to fisticuffs. Apart from a few discussions of journalistic ethics which are rather too much on the nose, the idea of "truth-telling-as-freedom-fighting" is very well explored. The other ideas? Not so much -- and it's a real shame. Transmetropolitan's setting and secondary characters ar

Instead of reviewing Transmet volume by volume, I decided to instead review the series as a whole (posting this review on both vol.1 and 10). Warren Ellis's Transmetroplition is without a doubt my all time favorite graphic novel, yes even better then Moore's Watchmen. What can overly simplified as " What if Dr. Hunter S. Thompson" was the focus of a much darker Futurama.

Transmet follows Spider Jerusalem: foul mouthed, drug fueled, Gonzo Journalist ( Clearly modeled on the late great Dr. Hunter

Granted I started reading this series a good 5 years after it had completed its run, but still, finishing this final volume knowing there's no more to come makes me sad. I can only reenter the City now by rereading previous volumes (which I'm sure I'll do). Everything about this series is perfect. The thoroughly-imagined world, the incomparable Spider Jerusalem, the harsh satire, and the punch-you-in-the-nuts art. Ellis turned journalism into an action movie.
Donald Armfield
This comic series is an insane world that Warren Ellis explains so engrossing. Darick Robertson the main artist really knows how to draw out the bizarre mind of Spider Jerusalem and the strange world that Warren Ellis brings us.

The series is about a lunatic journalist who hates the world around him. The president is his main target who he tries to pretty much take a dump on. With his filthy assistants by his side its a read you will never forget

All good things come to an end. This was a great series and it was wound up well. It was a linear and logical run to the finish line with all lose ends and support characters accounted for with a few surprises thrown in.

The new edition that I read includes the "I Hate it Here" and "Filth of the City" columns. My reaction to these was mixed, the use of guest was great in both but the story did not add anything significant.

"I hate it here" was good as the columns were sequential and followed the p

That was awesome. Oh man. I can't believe I resisted for so long and at first hated this series. It is brilliant. And the ending is absolutely perfect.
It is a bit surprising to see such a long-running comic to not loose its pace and momentum until the very last page. Bravo, Mr. Ellis, bravo, Mr. Robertson.

Shelves: cyberpunk, comics
Warren Ellis' graphic novel series is unmistakeably well written. The 90's art style perfectly suits the story, and even suits the cyberpunk genre. It is a gritty, ultra-violent series, with a nice, different take on hacker altruism, inspired by the sci-fi novels of the 80's.

Having said that, it is a very difficult series to read. Pure nuggets of creativity are often dimmed by schizophrenic breaks--often by the protagonist--which, I understand, makes this series unique, and to some endearing, b

Other than some confusion since I'm coming into this story apparently well underway, this is totally twisted and over the top--all of the reasons I love graphic novels. I wanted to read this for something different and that it is. Outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem battles authority (represented by an evil power hungry president who is downright blatant about it) and his own demons. Crazy stuff but some solid points about the masses who are easily distracted by garbage entertainment instead of f ...more

Transmetropolitan was so much more than I expected. It has a bit of everything in it (social criticism, the responsibility and power of journalism, quiestions about science and humanity, and even friendship). It is definitely a series upon which we can reflect on where we're going as a society and as individuals, despite how likely or not it is for the world to become the way Transmetropolitan shows it. I think that somewhat exaggerated depiction of it is necessary for us to create a more honest ...more

What did I learn from this book, or actually from this series?? Don't be an elitist asshole and dismiss an entire genre as unworthy of your attention. This lowly series of comic books will now assume a place much nearer the top of my list of excellent pieces of literature than many, many novels I've read. Sure, it's vulgar, violent, gruesome and irreverent, but it also has more heart and soul than a lot of work that is considered "classic literature" in my opinion.
