In a future where consumerism, superficiality and corruption reign supreme, outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem has decided to stop sitting idly by and watching the world crumble around him. No one in The City is safe.
YEAR TWO: I HATE IT HERE Outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem has covered every flavor of newsworthy depravity in the course of his long and chemically enhanced career. But the legendary street reporter's bread-and-butter stories of organ traffickers, DNA thieves, and dog fondlers are just an appetizer for that ultimate banquet of human degradation--politics. Two candidates--the Beast and the Smiler--are facing off in this year's presidential election and Spider seems to be the only member of the media with the intestinal fortitude to hack his way through the campaign propaganda and discover the reality behind the spin. But even with all his years of hard-won cynicism, Spider is still in for a shock when he starts to turn over these particular rocks--and there won't be enough mind-numbing drugs in the whole world to mask the corruption that he and his new assistants are about to expose. Acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (Castlevania, The Wild Storm) and artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Happy!) reconstruct the present by deconstructing the future in Transmetropolitan Book Two, collecting issues #13-24 of their disturbingly prescient series together with the special anthology one-shot Transmetropolitan: I Hate It Here and featuring an introduction by stage and screen legend Patrick Stewart.
