Read full description of the books Transmetropolitan n. 5: Soli In Città:Ladies and Gentlemen, We are back in Black!
After the events of the fourth volume, Warren Ellis opens this installment with a great stand alone chapter featuring a very interesting interview.... of Spider himself. He contemplates about death, life, the concept of the fair game, and finally ties it all up to the main story arc beautifully.
The next two chapters are also stand alone in their own term, one featuring random rants of Spider and another featuring Spider and Co's unethical boundless investigative journalism. I enjoyed parts of these two chapters, but as a whole, these two were weakest ones in the volume, if not the whole series.
But fear not, because the rest of the Volume's three part story arc will Blow you away.
Welcome to the Lonely City.
Racism is universal. In some parts of the world, it's skin color, in others ancestry or even religious class. At the end of the day, everything comes back to your DNA.
And that's what Warren Ellis did. Racism based purely on DNA.
This, my friend, is the best story yet. It criticises authority and the politics behind it, questions media and its freedom, and presents a shocking scenario. The story is sharp and at moments, you might just be disturbed by the story's resemblance to our own world's fucked up situation.
Overall, this is one of the strongest Transmetropolitan volumes.
