Transmetropolitan: The Cure – Warren Ellis

If Transmetropolitan were a movie this would be the chase sequence. You know the credits will soon be rolling and this is the final mad dash to get the girl/ bad guy/ McGuffin, before it is too late. Despite this rapid pacing Ellis is still smart enough to slow down for characterisation and to pay attention to the minor characters. There is a bit of exposition as the final cards are revealed and we do seem to spin our wheels for a bit but the last page makes for such an incredible ending.

The art doesn’t have as much free reign as the last book but still does a great job. Talking heads and necessary dialogue can become a chore for an artist but Robertson keeps things fresh and vibrant with his creative angles, wonderful facial expressions and collage-type layouts.
