Nobody ever accused Warren Ellis of lacking imagination. The latest collection of the Spider Jerusalem saga, Transmetropolitan: Lonely City, is packed with laser-guided satire and neo-adolescent wish fulfillment in the form of a bowel disruptor. Sliding his story of government manipulation and counter-manipulation between moments of reflection and observation makes Ellis's downbeat ending a bit less nihilistic than it could have been. Despite the gulf separating us from Jerusalem's City, it's not hard to draw parallels between his milieu of police-run riots and state-maintained misery and our own less colorful environment. Lonely City drags the man who's more "anti" than "hero" out into the world he professes to hate and forces him to do something about it, while never descending into the boring comic-book morality he fights daily. --Rob Lightner -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Bitterböse, vulgär, zum-Magen-umdrehen und gerade deswegen voller Einsichten, Denkanstößen und Weisheit, die einem mit Wucht ins Gesicht springt.
Ein geniales Epos, das man immer und immer wieder lesen wird.
Immer wieder gerne verschenkt, alleine, weil man dann immer was zum Reden hat, und gemeinsam über Sachen lachen kann, bei denen sich der Rest der Welt nur an den Kopf langt.

Bitter, vulgar, in-your-face, yet meaningful 5. Juli 2001
Von Christine Hoff Kraemer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I highly recommend this new Transmetropolitan TPB. My favorite TPB so far has been the second (Lust for Life), because the first has that new-comic unevenness and the third and fourth had a little too much pointless vulgarity for my taste. But this fifth one really impressed me. Like the others, it's grim, bitter, and funny, and Spider says utterly disgusting and shocking things in that sardonic way that makes him fascinating. But the graphic novel also takes up the issue of the human condition again, makes you remember that the reason Spider is fascinating is that he's not -just- a rat bastard -- he actually cares about the state of the world, and is equally sensitized to both its beauty and its horror. Spider has learned, essentially, that the best way to pursue the truth and fight the Man is to be an evil ****. And that's why we like him.
Special bonus: an introduction by Patrick Stewart, who's apparently a big fan. I would have never guessed.

All hail Spider! 2. August 2011
Von Scottybrowneyes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm in love with this series! I'm not sure how this works, but this series has both reaffirmed, and destroyed my faith in humanity, all while giving me a good number of laughs in each volume. As with Preacher, I would love to see a movie made from this, but would be terrified that something aweful would happen, like the X-men movies, or Daredevil, or the first Hulk movie that had Eric Banna attempting to act as Bruce Banner. Not sure who would act as Spider either (Johnny Depp? Credit where it's due, the man acted very well as Hunter S Thompson in Fear and loathing in Las Vegas)...for some reason, when I read this comic I keep imagining his voice having an english accent. Maybe that's because I read what Patrick Stuart had to say about the comic. Always kind of intrigued me that I could never quite figure Spider out. While reading, I would try to imagine what would happen next, something I've become fairly good at as I continue to fill my head with as much fiction as possible, but with Spider, I never guess right. The bastard really is insane, and never does what's expected of him. Entertainment at its best! I forcefully recommend this series to anyone and everyone I meet. Heaven help them if they show any resistance to it. I know no mercy. Kidding aside, in my review of Preacher, I made mention of my advice, that anyone considering buying a book online should first read a little bit of what they're thinking about buying before doing so. This series is the exception to that rule. I think every household in the US should have at least one copy of this series. Buy it!
Shooting truth 22. März 2012
Von Sam Quixote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Beast has been replaced in office by the Smiler, a far more sinister President with plans to obliterate the man who pursued and mocked him throughout the election, Spider Jerusalem. Following a Senator's sex scandal leads Spider and his filthy assistants, Yellena and Channon, to massive corruption within the police force of the city where a hate crime has been essentially buried. But when Spider raises his hackles on the police, he finds that he's walked into a bloody trap...

This book takes the story of the Smiler and Spider to the next level with the opening shots fired against Truth and Justice. As the bodies pile up, Spider realises the fun is has begun and the innocent must be avenged, and, with the white hot self-righteous bile vomiting forth from Warren Ellis' mind, this book is as fun and brilliant as the others are.

Also included are a couple of one-shot issues, one is an interview with Spider giving the reader more background on the character and insights into his childhood, while another is an illustrated column of Spider's "I Hate It Here".

The series continues to be excellent and "Lonely City" is a fine addition to the fun and silly, clever and dramatic stories that are building towards a compelling and enthralling storyline. Excellent writing and drawing, any fans of the series so far won't be disappointed with this book.

Volume 5 is my favorite thus far; as stated above and elsewhere, you get two things out of reading this volume in particular: one, the bastard is indeed insane, but more surprisingly he is a sensitive sort. After the sensitively introspective one-off issues at the beginning of this volume, it jumps into the story of Spider's vendetta against a police cover-up of a hate crime. His passion and anger at the force's coverup lends some moments of sensitivity and humanitarianism, and some of hilarity monstering, as Spider yet again goes balls deep on uncovering the truth. The series' plot really takes off here, particularly at the end of Lonely City vol. 3, where the plot against the Smiler really begins to take shape.

Great stuff; this one's real good. I've long wanted to get into comics but found the superhero thing quite cliche. Transmetropolitan is pretty much boss, and I for one think everyone remotely interested in comics - specifically of the humans-being-humans variety - should be all over this series. Be sure to tell anyone that wanes at the Vertigo label that this was the good one from the short-lived imprint. Expect some resistance from those who know Vertigo though. ;)
Transmetropolitan is back, and thank heaven for that. 30. März 2009

Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan: Lonely City (Vertigo, 2001)

Lonely City starts out with much the same problem The New Scum had, in that Ellis has sacrificed a good deal of the series' humor in order to amp up the social commentary. That said, he makes up for it in spades in the latter half of the book, which gets us back into the plot, and the convulsive humor germane to the series. I'm back to my slavish adoration of Transmetropolitan with the second half of Lonely City, with Spider and his assistants actually doing something as opposed to Ellis hand-feeding us Spider-written columns. *** ½
