Transmetropolitan Vol. 2: Lust for Life collects issues 4-12 of the DC comic Transmetropolitan. In Lust for Life post-cyberpunk gonzo journalist Spider Jerusalem overdoses on television, investigates the nature of religion, drives his assistant insane prompting her to join a nunnery, is hunted by an extreme personal-isolation cult and has a violent confrontation with the President of the United States in a hotel bathroom.

As per usual, writer Warren Ellis crafts whip-smart dialogue, ridiculously hilarious stories and grimy, honest characters. Darrick Robertson's art is likewise of high-quality; his lush and active characters giddily fill in the details that make Transmetropolitan's hyper-technological future so attractive and addictive. This is a fantastic series, highly recommended for mature audiences who enjoy the graphic novel genre.
