Man, much better. The politics picks up and classic Gonzo journalism tactics come into play. The political wrangling in this is classic, and strangely enthralling. Dirty politics and Neo Nazi politicians, cannibalism and deviancy - this comic really has it all.

Like Garth Ennis Warren Ellis takes no prisoners, but unlike Garth Ennis, Warren Ellis weaves together a heavily political message that rings truer with every passing year.

There's a lot of truth in Transmetropolitan and there's much that anyone with even the slightest interest in politics can take away from it. In addition to this the society that has been created in this comic series is just fantastic. While not as detailed as Carla Speed McNeil''s world in the Finder series this one still stands on its own. The hate, the saturation of information, it all is something that one should be able to relate to.

Hell, even Heller's constituency is something that the average American has a passing familiarity with here...

Man, I can't wait to see what happens next.
