  • The adventures of our unorthodox Journalist continues Spider Jerusalem is a certified douchebag But like every celebrity douchebags, he is also a huge hit Everybody loves his gloriously controversial column I hate it here A Column which spider uses to tear a new one for some unlucky sap or a corporation So yea, he had made some enemies But that s the life of a journalist.But today, Some of his enemies are going to fight back.Remember Channon Spider s Assistant The first chapter kicks off with he [...]


  • This might surprise some people, but dark and angry as his work often is, I think of Ellis as a very hopeful writer So often his work seems to say, Look at this Look how awful this is Look how shitty people can be We can do better than this We re all better than this.


  • Like the first collection, the second volume of Transmetropolitan is imaginative and acerbic, often funny, often bitter, sometimes brilliant There s an amazing story tucked in the middle about a woman who s been awakened from cry freeze into a world that could care less about her that s astonishingly moving, fully imagined, and simply one of the best things I can ever recall reading by Ellis This volume would be worth reading for that one story alone, and it s absolutely the high point The rest [...]


  • This second volume is where we really see the series find its feet and we launch fully into the weird and wonderful world of Spider Jerusalem s with a tale about humans wanting to turn into sentient gas clouds, the harrowing story of the cryogenically unfrozen, synthetic reservations where you could choose to live in a past civilisation, and finally a three part story of Spider s ex wife s revenge.All of the stories have the verbal acrobatics and freewheeling genius level writing of Warren Ellis [...]


  • Jako zabavan strip, pun interesantnih vizija budu nosti Jedino bih vi e voleo da svaki volume ima jedinstven zaplet, ovako je pre zbirka kratkih pri a.


  • Unlike with other comics, I ve decided not to read this one at all unless I ve got a real copy of it in my hands I loved it from the very start and I m still fascinated by it, despite its often too disgusting depictions of horrible things Basically, it explores various ideas of our future Obviously we d have progressed in technology and medicine, allowing us to live longer and to alter our physique to our likings We got a good saying in Bosnia going once you have the finger, you want the whole h [...]


  • Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan Lust for Life DC, 1998 The great thing about Transmetropolitan is that Warren Ellis seems to remember something that no satirist since Mark Twain has gotten right while the heart of any satire is soaked in acid, the surface is supposed to be funny It s not satire if it doesn t make us laugh at it the humorless bastards who can t find anything funny in A Modest Proposal notwithstanding And while Transmetropolitan mirrors most modern satire in that the heart is cert [...]


  • Warren Ellis has so much talent in him Volume two felt like he could have been an effective journalist as well, a crazy one for that matter.Volume two fleshes out some about Spider Jerusalem, the past that still haunts him today with a bodiless wife, a headless kid and one woman and a talking police mutt whose lives he has messed up before.Lust for Life did a bit a meandering before it actually develops into a cohesive story, though it does it well with the benefit of spanning for issues as co [...]


  • I was afraid to be let down by volume two, but I was agreeably surprised to find a completely different angle on Spider Jerusalem and his own brand of social criticism LUST FOR LIFE is character oriented, but it s also going deeper into how the City is affecting him and driving him to great streaks of chaos and violence LUST FOR LIFE is about humans going insane trying to find their rightful place in a world that they ve driven off the rails and the embodiment of intellectual integrity that is [...]


  • In this second volume, we get a bit of Spider s history, go through a wild roller coaster of a ride with his new assistant and see of his incredible talent for pissing people off I believe it s the longest volume in the series and it s easy to see why This volume does a great job giving you an idea of the kind of person that Spider is and it isn t always pretty There s a dark side to a man who won t let a story go once he s gotten ahold of it and Ellis isn t afraid to show you every shade of gr [...]


  • So in this volume Spider Jerusalem manages to not come across as such a jerk probably because he tries to help his assistant come to terms with losing a boyfriend and importantly because several people are trying to kill him Oh he also crashes and burns with some women, too Some of the ideas within are intriguing even if not fully detailed yet fogletting your life essence is put into a nanobot cloud , cryogenic preservation with a focus on 20th century types awakened and in for a major culture [...]


  • I liked the first half of Vol 2 than the second It was very imaginative stories, such as a man being turned into a tiny cloud of nanobots, a woman coming back from cryogenic freezing to find out she s unwanted and alone this is my favourite piece of the book, and one of the most powerful ones Ellis has written in my opinion , Spider Jerusalem visiting reservations where people live as though they were in other native cultures, as a way to preserve them for eternity.It sure is a lot to take in, [...]




  • There s not much I can say about this I m rereading it for the first time in about 8 years, I ll be reading all 9 10 collections and I imagine I ll feel the same as I did the first time, it s one of the most insightful, impressive, damming, polemic critiques of modern society you ll read Just because it is in comic book form doesn t make it any less a work of art and insight on the level of Catch 22 or 1984 or any other great work of satire and commentary And in the days of the Orange Cheeto Pre [...]


  • Ellis calls this volume Lust for Life , but it ought to be titled Lust for a Different Life , because that s precisely what his characters do in this book They hanker for the past or they yearn for the future Even in a world of infinite possibilities and near interminable life spans, no one is content Can anyone ever be Ellis doesn t think so His world is vast, varied and vibrant, yet everyone feels trapped in a reality that they wish would just end already.There s the man who gets downloaded in [...]


  • This second volume is where we really see the series find its feet and we launch fully into the weird and wonderful world of Spider Jerusalem s with a tale about humans wanting to turn into sentient gas clouds, the harrowing story of the cryogenically unfrozen, synthetic reservations where you could choose to live in a past civilisation, and finally a three part story of Spider s ex wife s revenge.All of the stories have the verbal acrobatics and freewheeling genius level writing of Warren Ellis [...]


  • No one explores a f cked up future like Warren Ellis I love his unique brand of dark humour, colourful observation and his terrifying visions of the future Humanity has sunk to depths of squalor and depravity beyond today s wildest nightmares, large ethically dubious corporations run the world, and post nuclear apocalypse man is a variegated race of mutants to one extent of another who are slaves to their baser instincts in a world where anything goes and anything can be bought, if you have the [...]


  • Segundo tomo que compila los n meros 7 al 12 arrancando con tres geniales historias unitarias La primera la cibergasificaci n como explicarlo si no del novio de la asistente de Spider con un final tremendo El segundo trata sobre la criogenizaci n, la historia de una resucitada y su enfrentamiento al nuevo mundo, una locura monstruosa La tercera es Spider recorriendo reservas donde se mantiene la vida m s como la conocemos hoy d a alejados de ese futuro brutal donde se ambienta la serie Los ltimo [...]


  • Off the wall, inane, and at times completely immature, but always fun Within the hyper gonzo ramblings of anti just about everything but the truth journalist, Spider Jerusalem, lie powerful social critiques that leave very few unscathed When it comes to Transmetropolitan, Warren Ellis modus operandi can be described quite well by a single line from Wild in the Country While visiting the Farsight Community, an otherworldly reservation for a culture yet to happen, Jerusalem finds that the denizens [...]


  • Spider is back in the city and writing about all the crazy shit society has birthed in the new future All the stories are single ideas of how screwed up the future could be but slowly work into the larger story arc of Spider The writing is witty and bombastic but with a sharp edge In this book Spider deals with downloading the human mind, cryogenic freezing, reservations for cultures, and his ex wife Its a wild book that even has a pissed off cop dog who is hunting down Spider It s really in you [...]


  • Transmetropolitan s second graphic novel outing is even better than the first In particular, we get much detail in the character of Spider Jerusalem, and there s a consistent underlying theme As a journalist, Spider is a hero And in order to do this he has to be both incredibly compassionate, and such a megalomaniac that he causes irreparable harm to those around him This is a really interesting take on the nature of journalism and I found it to be much compelling than the similarly themed Imp [...]


  • Probably my favorite Transmetropolitan paperback along with Gouge Away, Lonely City and the New Scum It s just a wonderful read, and has some of the best stories before the presidential election kicks in and Callahan comes into scene Ellis shows us in detail some of the twisted aspects of the City.


  • This is the volume of Transmet that punched me both in the heart and stomach, that pulled me into the series and entrenched it as one of my all time favorites Bleak, heartbreaking, hopeful This is where we get to see the love of humanity Spider tucks away and doesn t show to the masses This is where we see what drives him.


  • I wasn t crazy about the final three piece plot, but the rest of them were golden The artwork is wonderfully detailed, the background ads and intricacies are hilarious, and the character of Spider Jerusalem is one of my favorites now Hell, even the cat cracks me up.I can t wait to get my boyfriend to read this series.



  • This is turning into some sort of a daily ritual I have to have my Spider dose of the day or I get restless.


  • Volumen dedicado a terminar de presentar el personaje a trav s de varios de sus art culos y vivencias, sin relaci n entre s Es en algunos de estos art culos donde vemos lo mejor de Ellis, con historias que conmueven y hacen pensar precisamente aquellas donde Spider ejerce de espectador pasivo dejando de lado su faceta m s histri nica, como las dedicadas a los descargados , los criogenizados o las reservas.


  • Este c mic sigue siendo genial, c mo trata en cada n mero unos aspectos futuristas muy interesantes como los resucitados que estaban criogenizados y su adaptaci n al nuevo mundo o el tema de las reservas culturales Oro puro En este tomo comienza una trama de largo alcance y presenta al perro polic a m s cabr n del universo Me lo gozo.


  • Consistent and enjoyable Ellis fleshed out his darkly satiric future with foglets, corrupt cops, reservations, and revival shock The world of the City is still grim, gross,manic, and brightly lit.
