Last week, I put forward the idea that the second issue

TRANSMET: Human Reaction and Criminal Enterprise #2

Once re-established in The City, Spider finds his first story opportunity in Fred Christ, a former record producer who’s found a new purpose in life by leading a cult of people turning themselves into aliens. There probably isn’t another single issue that sums up the hit or miss nature of Transmetropolitan’s political allegory, which has
