Transmetropolitan, Warren Ellis' and Darick Robertson's grand pastiche, follows Spider Jerusalem, neo-gonzo journalist extraordinaire, through the backyards and the rooftops of the future. Ellis's wit is bang on the job, surely at its prime, in all its spitfire, vulgar glory. And the nosedive the series takes somewhere in the middle comes with scary accuracy, becoming a soap box commentary on our generation. Touching everything from anthropomorphism to religion to politics with a cheery sense of dread and disgust in its 60 issue run, and featuring one of the scariest governments post-1984, this is one of Vertigo's imprint-defining titles.
- Around the World: Although inspired by Transmetropolitan, this is not a necessary to enjoying the series and rather something for fans that doubles as a support for people in the comic industry comic creators that are in need of it.
