Transmetropolitan, Volume 1: Back on the Street

Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson

Comic Selection #9

A pillar of the cyberpunk and transhumanist genres, Transmetropolitan has been acclaimed for its intricate plot and realized characters since its debut in 1997. Writer Warren Ellis (noted for his work on comics such as Red and Trees, as well as Netflix's animated adaptation of Castlevania) delivers insightful sociocultural commentary while following the infamous gonzo journalist Spider Jerusalem as he is reluctantly brought out of retirement to combat the corruption and abuses of power choking The City at some unspecified point in a dystopian future. Praised for Ellis' writing and the gritty, detailed artwork of Darick Robertson, Transmetropolitan has become a cult favorite of cyberpunk fans and has been regarded by many as the perfect gateway into the genre.
