Format: Paperback
The latest TPB of this fantastic series features a pretty big plot point for our bowel-disrupting hero, Spider Jerusalem. This is definately NOT the book for an unsuspecting reader who is new to transmet to purchase. You'll want to start from the beginning.
That said, it's obvious from the stories in this volume that the series is coming to a final end. It has ended for all of you who bought the issues themselves, but for late-comers such as myself, you'd better start savoring the time you spend with Spider as much as possible.
The meat of this collection is the 4 part story featuring a huge storm, which thrusts Spider into a deep coma. We meet one of the Filthy Assistants father, and gear up for the last dozen or so issues of the series. Issues 43-48 are reprinted in lovely colour, a great cover, and the standard vertigo TPB fare. Transmet stops at issue 60, so you'd better pay catch up before the we hit bottom!

Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan: Dirge (Vertigo, 2003)

Things are looking bad for Spider. He's been forced underground, he may have a terminal disease, and worst of all, he's got a deadline. Everything from the past few volumes has centered on Spider's expose of Alan Schacht, the Smiler's campaign manager. The administration hasn't been overly thrilled with the results, to the point of trying to have Spider assassinated. How far, though, are they really willing to go? The answers will surprise everyone, characters and readers alike. Ellis really gets back on track with this volume. ****

A few things hit in this issue. Another assassin, but a sneaky one. A massive storm hits the city, and at the same time, a serious case of the blue flu hits the police force.

Spider's illness is getting much worse, but here he gets a lot of help from the filthy assistants, as he tries to get everything done before he can't work anymore. Yelena herself is even growing to look more Spider-like.

They do have some friends, and aid comes from an unlikely source.
