Shot in the FaceL to do so This book explores all these topics and from multiple points of view It also includes interviews with both Ellis and RobertsonFrom Seuart Organization More info. Disclaimer I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway for the purpose of writing this reviewTransmetropolitan was a science fiction comic book series co created by writer Warren Ellis and artist Darick Robertson that ran under the Helix and Vertigo imprints for sixty issues from 1997 2002 It details the journey of “gonzo journalist” Spider Jerusalem as he is forced to return to the sprawling City and becomes involved in presidential politics The foul mouthed and personally noxious Jerusalem has one redeeming uality an absolute dedication to tell the truth as he sees it and in the bizarre world of the future that uality is vitalThis book is a collection of essays on various aspects of Transmetropolitan from its publishing history to how it compares to other works by Mr Ellis It’s been in my To Be Read pile for a long time since its publication in 2013 as I had meant to actually read Transmetropolitan first But the volumes I needed were checked out at the library and weeks went by and then I lost track of this book Having it surface again I decided to read it without finishing the original seriesThe essays for the most part seem pretty solid There’s one that compares and contrasts Spider Jerusalem with Hunter S Thompson who was a major inspiration for the character and another on whether Jerusalem counts as a “super hero” as well as detailed looks at the plot structure and interviews with the creators Some of the essays could have used another proofreader pass as I spotted spellchecker typos and sentence fragmentsThe essay “Supporting Players Women in Transmetropolitan” by Greg Burgas seemed a little off as he does not even mention two minor characters who show Spider Jerusalem’s less stellar ualities mentioned in a couple of the other essays and seemingly this essay would have been the place to go into depth about themSeveral pages from the comics are reproduced in black and white to illustrate points and there are a few stills from a documentary about EllisAs one might expect there’s a lot of rough language in here mostly in uotes from the series and discussions of edgy topics–consider this to have the same “mature readers” designation as the comicsPrimarily recommended to fans of Transmetropolitan or of Warren Ellis in general If you haven’t read the series yet you will be better served by doing that first

Warning this is not a single book but a collection of interviews and articles from different authors on TransmetTherefore throughout the book some concepts will be repeated ad nauseam and you might feel discouraged to keep on reading You better to go through the index and just start with what's relevant to you leaving the rest for later or don't read them at all; some are not significant contributions if you already read the comicI mostly enjoyed it because I love Transmet and I'm in for any opportunity of discussing it But besides a couple of good pieces my total favorite was one by Patrick Meaney I found most of the writings and author's approaches not very compelling
