After years of self-imposed exile from a civilization rife with degradation and indecency, cynical journalist Spider Jerusalem is forced to return to a job that he hates and a city that he loathes. Working as an investigative reporter for the newspaper The Word, Spider attacks the injustices of his surreal 21st Century surroundings. Combining black humour, life-threatening situations, and moral ambiguity, Warren Ellis's legendary series is the first look into the mind of an outlaw journalist and the world he seeks to destroy. This new trade paperback re-cut series features behind the scenes material, variant covers and scripts from the graphic novel series run. Collects issues #1-12.

Review quote

"Trasmet is brilliant future-shock commentary." --Spin "Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson take a Hunter S. Thompson analogue and put him
through a 23rd century wringer. It's angry political sci-fi and it's funny as hell." --Playboy
