Transmetropolitan, Vol. 10: One More Time
At last, it’s the final showdown between Spider and the absolutely corrupt President of the United States in this new printing of the finale to the classic dystopian saga from Vertigo.
Spider you insane bastard I will miss you.
But what have I thought of TRANSMETROPOLITAN's ending? It was all right. Maybe the fi ...more
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 ...more
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.
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 ...more
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.Transmetropolitan issue 58, page 5, published 2002
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 ...more
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.
Harían falta muchos Spider Jerusalem hoy en día para salvarnos de la situación en la que está metido el mundo en la actualidad.
But this really is the sort of book perfectly suited ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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
