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.

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

Thank you Warren Ellis, thank you.

I give the final volume of TRANSMETROPOLITAN five stars based on three principles: 1) This series is a required reading for young and feeble minds in the age where spectacle and real issues have become indistinguishable. 2) It goes back to the series' roots of breaking down the power of media in entertaining and unforceful ways and 3) there actually is over 100 pages of bonus material in my edition so it's cool.

But what have I thought of TRANSMETROPOLITAN's ending? It was all right. Maybe the fi

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

A fantastic finale to a superlative series. Spider Jerusalem is one of the most profound, disturbing and memorable characters ever put to panels.

This series’s total relevance to the “society” of our current existence is not lost on this reader.

Perseverance, insolence and a smidge of wagging the dog are the keys to survival, or so it would seem.

Definitely worth the journey.

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

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

Great, fitting end to an ultimately brilliant series. I don't know why it took me so long to get to this, since Ellis is one of my favorite writers, but I'm glad I did. Amazingly prescient throughout--the story of outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem vs. "the Smiler," a psychotic president, has some amazing parallels to what's going on around us daily, with each new outrage of the Trump administration. Hopefully, there's someone out there to take on the Spider role in the current battle, too. A co ...more

There's a lot of words I could say about this final volume, but one of the characters said it better.
In a country whose revolutionary agenda is defined by free speech, the people's ability to ask informed questions should be enshrined by a president, not vilified.

Wow, just fucking wow. Where's the real life Spider Jerusalem right now, because we really need someone like him to tell the truth, to speak up for those without a voice, to campaign

Personally, I couldn't have asked for a better ending.

Fin del viaje por el universo fatídico de Transmetropolitan con un cierre perfecto. No voy a dar muchos detalles pero todo lo que pasa está muy bien, incluso el suspenso de las últimas escenas encuadran en lo que fue toda la tirada de 60 entregas y para completar este volumen final dos extras, I hate it here y Filth of the city que serían como un libro de trayectoria, cada página o doble página dibujada por un artista distinto, una galería de nombres de primera línea que son el moño de uno de lo ...more

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.

Haciendo una valoración general, es una obra maestra. Por los temas que trata, por cómo lo trata y porque a pesar de los años sigue vigente lo que critica, por desgracia.
Harían falta muchos Spider Jerusalem hoy en día para salvarnos de la situación en la que está metido el mundo en la actualidad.

This was an great and perfect end to an amazing series. Got nothing else. Read the fucker.
The saga of Spider Jerusalem, his Filthy Assistants, The City and The Smiler comes to a somewhat anti-climactic conclusion, for me at least. I always found the more freewheeling material showing life in the gloriously demented future world of Transmetropolitan more compelling than the political drama, although the latter of course feels very topical, even prophetic, in the present day. I think my "is that it?" reaction to the ending arises because (view spoiler) ...more

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

I love the way they ended this series. I will say no more, lest I give something away.

Reread the whole series over a weekend in 2015. So damn good.

It's funny. I first started reading Transmet in 2000 because my then-boyfriend was super into it. (I still consider Transmet to be one of the only good things I got out of that relationship.) But it was an incredible experiment to reread the whole series in a few days in 2015, over a decade after this last trade paperback was released. Reading the fi

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

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.

A fitting end to one o

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

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.

This was an amazing run. It was written 15 years ago and everything said is still true. The Smiler kind of made me think of Donald Trump running for presidency. This is the kind of comics everybody should read
