    1. The adventures of our unorthodox Journalist continues!Spider Jerusalem is a certified douchebag. But like every celebrity douchebags, he is also a huge hit. Everybody loves his gloriously controversial column "I hate it here": A Column which spider uses to tear a new one for some unlucky sap or a corporation. So yea, he had made some enemies. But that's the life of a journalist.But today, Some of his enemies are going to fight back.Remember Channon? Spider's Assistant. The first chapter kicks of [...]

    2. This might surprise some people, but dark and angry as his work often is, I think of Ellis as a very hopeful writer. So often his work seems to say, "Look at this. Look how awful this is. Look how shitty people can be. We can do better than this. We're all better than this."

    3. Like the first collection, the second volume of Transmetropolitan is imaginative and acerbic, often funny, often bitter, sometimes brilliant. There's an amazing story tucked in the middle about a woman who's been awakened from cry-freeze into a world that could care less about her that's astonishingly moving, fully imagined, and simply one of the best things I can ever recall reading by Ellis. This volume would be worth reading for that one story alone, and it's absolutely the high point. The re [...]

    4. This second volume is where we really see the series find its feet and we launch fully into the weird and wonderful world of Spider Jerusalem's with a tale about humans wanting to turn into sentient gas clouds, the harrowing story of the cryogenically unfrozen, synthetic reservations where you could choose to live in a past civilisation, and finally a three part story of Spider's ex-wife's revenge.All of the stories have the verbal acrobatics and freewheeling genius level writing of Warren Ellis [...]

    5. Jako zabavan strip, pun interesantnih vizija budućnosti. Jedino bih više voleo da svaki volume ima jedinstven zaplet, ovako je pre zbirka kratkih priča.

    6. Unlike with other comics, I've decided not to read this one at all unless I've got a real copy of it in my hands. I loved it from the very start and I'm still fascinated by it, despite its often too disgusting depictions of horrible things. Basically, it explores various ideas of our future. Obviously we'd have progressed in technology and medicine, allowing us to live longer and to alter our physique to our likings. We got a good saying in Bosnia going: "once you have the finger, you want the w [...]

    7. Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan: Lust for Life (DC, 1998)The great thing about Transmetropolitan is that Warren Ellis seems to remember something that no satirist since Mark Twain has gotten right; while the heart of any satire is soaked in acid, the surface is supposed to be funny. It's not satire if it doesn't make us laugh at it (the humorless bastards who can't find anything funny in “A Modest Proposal” notwithstanding). And while Transmetropolitan mirrors most modern satire in that the [...]

    8. Warren Ellis has so much talent in him. Volume two felt like he could have been an effective journalist as well, a crazy one for that matter.Volume two fleshes out some more about Spider Jerusalem, the past that still haunts him today with a bodiless wife, a headless kid and one woman and a talking police mutt whose lives he has messed up before.Lust for Life did a bit a meandering before it actually develops into a cohesive story, though it does it well with the benefit of spanning for more iss [...]

    9. I was afraid to be let down by volume two, but I was agreeably surprised to find a completely different angle on Spider Jerusalem and his own brand of social criticism. LUST FOR LIFE is more character oriented, but it's also going deeper into how the City is affecting him and driving him to great streaks of chaos and violence. LUST FOR LIFE is about humans going insane trying to find their rightful place in a world that they've driven off the rails and the embodiment of intellectual integrity th [...]

    10. In this second volume, we get a bit of Spider's history, go through a wild roller coaster of a ride with his new assistant and see more of his incredible talent for pissing people off. I believe it's the longest volume in the series and it's easy to see why. This volume does a great job giving you an idea of the kind of person that Spider is and it isn't always pretty. There's a dark side to a man who won't let a story go once he's gotten ahold of it and Ellis isn't afraid to show you every shad [...]

    11. So in this volume Spider Jerusalem manages to not come across as such a jerk probably because he tries to help his assistant come to terms with losing a boyfriend and more importantly because several people are trying to kill him. Oh he also crashes and burns with some women, too. Some of the ideas within are intriguing even if not fully detailed yet: fogletting (your life essence is put into a nanobot cloud), cryogenic preservation (with a focus on 20th century types awakened and in for a major [...]

    12. I liked the first half of Vol 2 more than the second. It was very imaginative stories, such as a man being turned into a tiny cloud of nanobots, a woman coming back from cryogenic freezing to find out she's unwanted and alone (this is my favourite piece of the book, and one of the most powerful ones Ellis has written in my opinion), Spider Jerusalem visiting 'reservations' where people live as though they were in other native cultures, as a way to preserve them for eternity.It sure is a lot to t [...]

    13. There's not much I can say about this. I'm rereading it for the first time in about 8 years, I'll be reading all 9 (10?) collections and I imagine I'll feel the same as I did the first time, it's one of the most insightful, impressive, damming, polemic critiques of modern society you'll read. Just because it is in comic book form doesn't make it any less a work of art and insight on the level of Catch 22 or 1984 or any other great work of satire and commentary. And in the days of the Orange Chee [...]

    14. Ellis calls this volume ‘Lust for Life’, but it ought to be titled ‘Lust for a Different Life’, because that’s precisely what his characters do in this book They hanker for the past or they yearn for the future. Even in a world of infinite possibilities and near-interminable life spans, no one is content. Can anyone ever be? Ellis doesn’t think so. His world is vast, varied and vibrant, yet everyone feels trapped in a reality that they wish would just end already.There’s the man wh [...]

    15. This second volume is where we really see the series find its feet and we launch fully into the weird and wonderful world of Spider Jerusalem's with a tale about humans wanting to turn into sentient gas clouds, the harrowing story of the cryogenically unfrozen, synthetic reservations where you could choose to live in a past civilisation, and finally a three part story of Spider's ex-wife's revenge.All of the stories have the verbal acrobatics and freewheeling genius level writing of Warren Ellis [...]

    16. No one explores a f*cked up future like Warren Ellis. I love his unique brand of dark humour, colourful observation and his terrifying visions of the future. Humanity has sunk to depths of squalor and depravity beyond today's wildest nightmares, large ethically dubious corporations run the world, and post-nuclear-apocalypse man is a variegated race of mutants (to one extent of another) who are slaves to their baser instincts in a world where anything goes and anything can be bought, if you have [...]

    17. Segundo tomo que compila los números 7 al 12 arrancando con tres geniales historias unitarias. La primera la cibergasificación (¿como explicarlo si no?) del novio de la asistente de Spider con un final tremendo. El segundo trata sobre la criogenización, la historia de una resucitada y su enfrentamiento al nuevo mundo, una locura monstruosa. La tercera es Spider recorriendo "reservas" donde se mantiene la vida más como la conocemos hoy día alejados de ese futuro brutal donde se ambienta la [...]

    18. Off-the-wall, inane, and at times completely immature, but always fun. Within the hyper-gonzo ramblings of anti-just-about-everything-but-the-truth journalist, Spider Jerusalem, lie powerful social critiques that leave very few unscathed. When it comes to Transmetropolitan, Warren Ellis' modus operandi can be described quite well by a single line from "Wild in the Country." While visiting the Farsight Community, an otherworldly reservation for "a culture yet to happen," Jerusalem finds that the [...]

    19. Spider is back in the city and writing about all the crazy shit society has birthed in the new future. All the stories are single ideas of how screwed up the future could be but slowly work into the larger story arc of Spider. The writing is witty and bombastic but with a sharp edge. In this book Spider deals with downloading the human mind, cryogenic freezing, reservations for cultures, and his ex wife. Its a wild book that even has a pissed off cop dog who is hunting down Spider. It's really i [...]

    20. Transmetropolitan's second graphic novel outing is even better than the first. In particular, we get much more detail in the character of Spider Jerusalem, and there's a consistent underlying theme. As a journalist, Spider is a hero. And in order to do this he has to be both incredibly compassionate, and such a megalomaniac that he causes irreparable harm to those around him. This is a really interesting take on the nature of journalism and I found it to be much more compelling than the similarl [...]

    21. Probably my favorite Transmetropolitan paperback along with Gouge Away, Lonely City and the New Scum. It's just a wonderful read, and has some of the best stories before the presidential election kicks in and Callahan comes into scene. Ellis shows us in detail some of the more twisted aspects of the City.

    22. This is the volume of Transmet that punched me both in the heart and stomach, that pulled me into the series and entrenched it as one of my all-time favorites. Bleak, heartbreaking, hopeful. This is where we get to see the love of humanity Spider tucks away and doesn't show to the masses. This is where we see what drives him.

    23. I wasn't crazy about the final three piece plot, but the rest of them were golden. The artwork is wonderfully detailed, the background ads and intricacies are hilarious, and the character of Spider Jerusalem is one of my favorites now. Hell, even the cat cracks me up.I can't wait to get my boyfriend to read this series.

    24. This is turning into some sort of a daily ritual. I have to have my Spider dose of the day or I get restless.

    25. Volumen dedicado a terminar de presentar el personaje a través de varios de sus artículos y vivencias, sin relación entre sí. Es en algunos de estos artículos donde vemos lo mejor de Ellis, con historias que conmueven y hacen pensar; precisamente aquellas donde Spider ejerce de espectador pasivo dejando de lado su faceta más histriónica, como las dedicadas a los "descargados", los criogenizados o las reservas.

    26. Este cómic sigue siendo genial, cómo trata en cada número unos aspectos futuristas muy interesantes como los "resucitados" que estaban criogenizados y su adaptación al nuevo mundo o el tema de las reservas culturales. Oro puro. En este tomo comienza una trama de largo alcance y presenta al perro policía más cabrón del universo. Me lo gozo.

    27. Consistent and enjoyable Ellis fleshed out his darkly satiric future with foglets, corrupt cops, reservations, and revival shock. The world of the City is still grim, gross,manic, and brightly lit.
