Synopsis from publisher:

After making his presence known in TRANSMETROPOLITAN: BACK ON THE STREETS, renegade columnist Spider Jerusalem targets three of society’s most worshipped and warped pillars: politics, religion, and television. When Spider tries to shed light on the atrocities of these institutions, he finds himself fleeing a group of hitmen/kidnappers in possession of his ex-wife’s frozen head, a distorted creature alleging to be his son, and a vicious talking police dog.


This publication is the second in a series reprinting the comic book series Transmetropolitan, which was originally published by DC Comics’ imprint Helix. All material in this publication was written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Darick Robertson. The cover for the new edition (right) was originally used for the cover of issue #12.
