Transmetropolitan Volume 4 The New Scum... Its the poor and the middle class. The voting citizen the one that can't be bothered to move his/hers ass to the voting booth and doodle a cross on a box. Its the uninformed and the uninterested. Its the blind and the unwilling to see. The new scum was written almost two decades ago, but could very well be written today. The new scum is me and you.
The presidential campaign is in its final stretch. Only 2 weeks until election day and both candidates are playing their last trumps. And Spider gets trapped in the midst of their political games. Warren Ellis, once again, turned something that is inherently boring and tedious into a gripping word battle between Spider and the presidential candidates. And as a result the reader not only gets some very interesting moments, but also some much deserved character development that, until this point, was missing.
|The party is on|
This is a great addition to the Transmetropolitan Universe. It expands on important characters, creates new threads for future stories and on top of that, it entertains the reader immensely.
Authors: Warren Ellis, Darick Robertson
