Warren Ellis continues the genius that is "Transmetropolitan" in this second volume: "Lust for Life".

Outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem takes on the President, television, and religious leaders as Ellis glimpses the future and reflects on our present. There is also a heavy transhumanist theme in the book as the stories look at downloading the self into machines and cryogenics.

All at once entertaining, thought-provoking, and hilarious, this series is like nothing you've ever read.
