Formats & editions


After years of self-imposed exile from a civilization rife with degradation and indecency, cynical journalist Spider Jerusalem is forced to return to a job that he hates and a city that he loathes. Working as an investigative reporter for the newspaper The Word, Spider attacks the injustices of his surreal 21st Century surroundings. Combining black humor, life-threatening situations, and moral ambiguity, this book is the first look into the mind of an outlaw journalist and the world he seeks to destroy.

Collects the first twenty-one issues of Transmetropolitan in DC's top quality, slipcased Absolute Edition format.

Praise for Absolute Transmetropolitan Vol. 1

“Praise for Transmetropolitan: "Transmet is brilliant future-shock commentary." —SPIN "Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson take a Hunter S. Thompson analogue and put him through a 23rd century wringer. It's angy political sci-fi and it's funny as hell."—PLAYBOY”
