bookcover
Back on the Street
, volume one of the graphic novel Transmetropolitan centers around a man called Spider Jerusalem. Spider is a first-rate journalist and he's been living like a hermit in the wilderness due to a self-imposed exile. Follow along in the 23rd Century as Spider unwillingly returns to the City due to contractual obligations. This is a city where the air smells of deodorant and cheap perfume and its inhabitants willingly splice their bodies with machinery and alien DNA. Watch as Spider finds a job as a journalist and becomes the speaker for truth and justice as he writes his version of events in order to defend the Transients from the brutality of the dirty police force and a corrupt government. You won't be able to put this one down.
