Deconstructing Comics #558: “Transmetropolitan”

Spider Jerusalem

Transmetropolitan, by Warren Ellis and Darrick Robertson, was a 60-issue series that covered potential issues of the future as well as political issues for any era. Tim and Kumar have read the whole series, and now they’re here with an analysis. How does the series’ take on the future stack up, fifteen years later? How does it seem prescient, and how does it feel a bit off-base? What are the politics of the series? Why does it appropriate a couple of iconic images?

Interview: Darick Robertson

     A few months ago Dollar Bin’s own Adam, Joel, and Tee “sat down” with Darick Robertson, artist on many works including Space Beaver, New Warriors, Transmetropolitan, and The Boys. Yes, the main course of the discussion is Trans-met, but the appetizer and the dessert are what make this podcast interview a complete meal.
