In the comic medium this series is in the top 5%, the more so that it is published by a DC. Positively Ellis writes good strong gritty dystopian stories, (supported perfectly by Darick Robinson's art - which recalls the underground era of comix somewhat), and negatively, there are almost nothing detracting, especially no stupid humor. If you like Gibson, S Hunter Thompson, P K Dick, W Burroughs et al, you will likely enjoy this, because they nail the mood, ambiance, look, and feel of the dysvisionary noir masters. And everything in this book, set in a near future, is going on now, in front of us, but just not so blatantly (nor do we quite have all the tech yet, (but we have some)).

Book seven of Transmetropolitan collects issues 37-42 of the original series. The graphics remain consistently enjoyable as Darick Robertson continued as penciller. Warren Ellis writes about difficult and mature subject matter; the material is not handled in a frivolous manner. This is way the comic matters to me. He deals with child prostitution, homelessness, and revolving door mental institutions; these are not easy subjects to tackle. I noticed some Fight Club references in this book. Highly recommended for mature readers.
