Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson's masterwork of gonzo science fiction and political soothsaying is finally available in a majestic Absolute Edition--just as the god algorithms intended!

As vital and engaging today as when it first hit the stands, the quick-dissolving red pill that is Transmetropolitan occupies the commanding heights overlooking both the autophagous corpse of print journalism and the hyperactive totalitarianism of online media. Set in a terrifyingly plausible future defined by ever-accelerating technology, Transmetropolitan clamps open readers' eyelids and overwrites their neural subroutines with 16K-resolution truth!

This third and final volume collects issues #40-60 of the original series and features a new introduction from Ellis, as well as a host of redacted extras from recently decrypted files.
Warren Ellis is the award-winning writer of Transmetropolitan, Planetary, The Authority, and the writer and co-creator of the graphic novel RED, which was the basis of two major motion pictures.   He is also the author of the NYT-bestselling novels Gun Machine and Crooked Little Vein.  His newest publication is the digital short-story single Dead Pig Collector, from FSG Originals.

His awards and recognitions include the NUIG Literary and Debating Society’s President’s Medal for service to freedom of speech, the Eagle Awards Roll Of Honour for lifetime achievement in the field of comics & graphic novels, the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire 2010, the Sidewise Award for Alternate History, and the International Horror Guild Award for illustrated narrative.

Ellis lives outside London, on the south-east coast of England, in case he needs to make a quick getaway. View titles by Warren Ellis
