You know that feeling you get when you finish a really good book?

I won't give anything away here, but trust me when I say that this was probably one of the best and most appropriate endings to a series I have ever read.

The guest comics are awesome and gorgeous and I was definitely inspired to look up the projects done by many of the artists that contributed.

Some writers create terrific pieces of literature but cannot write an ending to save their lives (I'm looking at you Stephen King). This is most definitely not the case here. Warren Ellis finished a great series with a spectacular ending, one that isn't a lame cop-out to pave way for a sequel. Spider doesn't need a sequel when his story was told right the first time. This trade had me eagerly reading page after page to a surprising (and on a much deeper level, beautiful and heart-warming) ending.

The Transmetropolitan series all-in-all is astounding piece of work, one that everyone should pick up.

WOW! What an appropriate and excellent ending to an outstanding series! Spider Jerusalem is way too cool! I won't give anything away here, but trust me when I say that this was probably one of the best and most appropriate endings to a series I have ever read. I loved it!

It's not often that a long-running series can come to a satisfying end without feeling forced. One More Time does just that. Justice is brought down on deserving heads without feeling trite. Good work, Mr. Ellis.

Format: Paperback
Spider and the Smiler meet up for a final "interview" and the fate of Spider and his brain disease is revealed.

Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson end the series in the tone of the books that went before it, with the kind of bravado and knack for compelling storytelling readers have come to expect from this duo and "One More Time" is a fitting end to this brilliant character.

I will say that I felt the showdown with Spider and Smiler, while satisfying, was a bit uninventive in how Spider brings Smiler down - it's a trick that he pulled on the President earlier in the series when he was campaigning and I felt the Smiler's confessions to be a bit drawn out and overlong. And also, if he'd gone that far and was literally holding a gun to Spider's head, why not pull the trigger?

That was maybe my only problem with the book, otherwise its righteous words and politics echo through the years, 10 now since it ended, with the same potency as when they were written. And the series holds up really well, I enjoyed this second reading of the series as much as the first time.

The little details are hilarious too. Throughout the series there have been little messages of "Free Steve Chung" on the sidewalk screens and in the final issue is a newspaper headline with "Steve Chung Freed!". Spider's garden also spells out "F*** YOU" when looked at from an aerial vantage, and the border guard from issue 1 gets his comeuppance.

It ends in the best way possible, I won't spoil it, but it's brilliant and makes me wish Ellis and Robertson would return to do another series with Spider. If you've never read "Transmetropolitan" (and why would you be reading a review of the last book in the series if you haven't?) or, like me, it's been years since you read it, pick it up again and treat yourself to some quality, original comics fare.

Spider, you degenerate - I love you. Thanks Warren and Darick for this amazing series!

This is a review for the series as a whole not the individual volume. I have heard about Transmetropolitan for years and a few months ago I finally started reading it. Wow, just wow. Even though the last issue came out over 10 years ago it's a story that still remains relevant today (unfortunately, read it and you'll get what I mean). All in all the characters, the main arc of the story, and the relationships are just amazing. As for the main character, make no mistake Spider Jerusalem is not a good person, but he does have principles. The Truth, no matter what. Why are you still reading this. Read the first volume, if you aren't hooked I don't know what to tell you. All I can say is I'm glad I bought all 10 and wish I had done it sooner.
