Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson's masterwork of gonzo science fiction and political soothsaying is finally available in a majestic Absolute Edition - just as Nostradamus predicted! As vital and engaging today as when it first hit the stands, the weaponized viral meme that is TRANSMETROPOLITAN occupies the toxic quagmire that runs between the burning wreckage of print journalism and the repellent echo chamber of online media. Set in a terrifyingly plausible future defined by ever-accelerating technology, TRANSMETROPOLITAN shoves readers' outdated brains into an fMRI scanner and rewires their flabby cortexes into screaming processors of truth! This second of three volumes collects issues 19-39 of the original series together with the one-shot special FILTH OF THE CITY, and features a new introduction from Robertson as well as a host of historic extras.
Warren Ellis is a comics and graphic novel writer best known for the graphic novel series Transmetropolitan, Planetary and The Authority. With over 35 graphic novels in print, Ellis has received numerous acclaims, including winner of the International Horror Guild award for graphic narrative and being named one of Entertainment Weekly's 100 Most Creative People. Rolling Stone described his work as, "more influenced by Jesus and Mary Chain than by the Justice League, while his characters fight for left-wing agendas over God and country, and kick puppies in the street."
