Synopsis from publisher:

In the third volume of the TRANSMETROPOLITAN collection, journalistic desperado Spider Jerusalem begins to crumble under the pressure of sudden and unwanted fame. Having had enough of the warped 21st century Babylon that he lives in, Spider escapes into a world of bitterness and pills. As he stumbles through this haze of depression and drugs, he must find a way to cover the biggest story of the year, the presidential election. Armed with only his demented mind and dark sense of humor, Spider embarks on an adventure of political cynicism, horrific sex, and unwelcome celebrity which culminates in a shocking and ruinous ending.


This publication is the third in a series reprinting the comic book series Transmetropolitan. All material in this publication was written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Darick Robertson and Rodney Ramos. Also included is an 8-page story from Vertigo: Winter’s Edge #2.
