Continuing the acclaimed tale of the day-to-day trials and tribulations of Spider Jerusalem, this fifth installment has the no-holds-barred investigative reporter delving into the city's police corruption. Living in an anti-utopian future, Spider continues his quest to expose society's injustices as he focuses his attention on those sworn to protect and serve. But even more so than usual, he will learn that his dedication to the truth can come at a high physical cost, especially when dealing with the riot police.
TRANSMETROPOLITAN: LONELY CITY is a 144-page trade paperback reprinting issues #25-30 of the acclaimed series, written by Ellis and illustrated by Robertson & Rodney Ramos, with a new cover by Robertson. LONELY CITY features the stories "Here to Go" (reminiscences), "21 Days in the City" (observations), and "Monstering" (carpet- bombings), in addition to the 3-part "Lonely City" story arc that leads our heroic trio into a deadly confrontation with the 5-0. Continuing the saga of Spider and the self-dug pit he deepens every day with his constant, irritating truth-mongering, LONELY CITY is so good that Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation) writes the introduction for it!
